Coding for Kids Starts Soon

Is there a child in your life who’s ready to use screen time to create something cool?

Coding for Kids provides a group environment where a caring adult and child can have fun, build STEM skills, and grow together as a team. In this group, kids create their own computer games and videos using Scratch, a free coding platform provided by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT.) This is a family group for children, 2nd through 6th grade. Each kid attends with an adult teammate, i.e., parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, older sibling, or mentor. The adult team member is not optional.

Our coding group starts on Monday, 1/23/2023. Weekly meetings are 90 minutes long with a short Bible study and discussion at the end: 6:30pm – 8pm. You may also attend by Zoom if desired. This semester,  teams will create three  computer games using Scratch, a free coding platform provided by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT.) In addition, we will have fun programming our newest robot. Quarky!

No previous programming experience is needed for adult or student, however your child should be able to read at or above their grade level. Each team needs a laptop or Chromebook with WiFi. We have a few laptops that you can use, but feel free to bring your own.

To enroll in the group, contact Dave Schoeff at 845-332-8722 or visit the Cedar Creek Groups page. To find our group, filter on West Toledo Campus and click select the Children topic.

This class is offered by Kool Kat Science, an Ohio based STEM training service
