  • Grades 2-4
  • Late Pick Up Available
  • Kids must be ok working on a computer

This hands-on class teaches computer programming to first to third graders using MIT’s Scratch 2.0 system. With an excellent ratio of no more than six students to one instructor (and more often 4:1), our budding computer scientists receive the attention needed to succeed in coding their creations. Our youngest programmers explore themes ranging from Drawing & Animation, Storytelling, Problem Solving and Game Design. With creativity always at the forefront of each class, students learn systematic coding concepts such as timing, event handling and sequencing to make various projects. The class is capped off with a multi-week effort where each child builds their own final project to present to the group and publishes it on MIT’s website for the community to view, comment and download! Multiple layers of challenging material are available allowing students to repeat this class until proficiency is achieved and they are ready for the next challenge. 

No previous coding experience is required, however your child must be comfortable working independently on a computer, including operating the computer using a mouse and reading and understanding basic words used to code.

Age: 6 to 9 years
Duration: 50 minutes - 6 hours and 30 minutes
