This course aims to instill the concept that technology is a creator’s tool to young curious minds. Technology is much more than the smartphones and tablets that they are used to seeing. Through fun hardware projects and games, the students learn and experiment conductivity, input/output, sensors, logic, design and much more. Utilizing advanced and innovative educational tools such as LittleBits, Makey Makey and Circuit Scribe, students will come to understand technology as a tool to solve problems and create useful things. By the end of the course, our students would have moved beyond playing and using computers and appliances, and begin to see what goes on behind the electronic devices they see everyday.
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
