Class Description:

Total beginner? This is the class for you. This week-long course is designed for young students ages 9+ with limited math and typing proficiency (<= 10 WPM). This course will be taught using JavaBlocks, our block-based coding platform tailor-made for easy transition into typed Java programming. Students learn computing concepts through guided experimentation, modifications and extensions on various projects. By the end of this course, students will have created their own project / game, should feel comfortable manipulating other simple programs, and have the foundation to create even more in higher level classes.

Our Proprietary In-Browser Coding Platform.

The KTBYTE team developed the KTCoder™ with our students in mind! Most coding classes require software downloads, which is difficult and a hassle for young students. Our platform supports Processing, Javablocks™, HTML/CSS, and a bunch of libraries (like Soundcipher and Fisica!). This revolutionary all-in-one coding platform supports our interactive online classes, our specialized curriculum, and (most importantly) our student's passion for learning.
