JavaBlocks Creation Week-long Course

FUN2w

Class Description:

This week-long course is suitable for students ages 10+ with fair typing proficiency (10-20 WPM) and are comfortable with trial-and-error experimentation. This course will be taught using JavaBlocks, our block-based coding platform tailor-made for easy transition into typed Java programming. Students with prior exposure to other block-based platforms (code.org, Scratch, Tynker) will find this course useful for transitioning to "typed-out" programming languages. Essential math and computing concepts (coordinates, state variables, conditionals, loops) will be taught, Students will learn to create various fun and interactive graphical projects. By the end of this course, students will create their own project / game with basic logic and game states.

Prerequisites:

10+ WPM typing speed and 5th grade math proficiency, or permission or instructor

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.
