Schedule and explanation of classes is listed below.
Once registration opens you will need to create an account on our New Connectech Portal where you will find a listing for all the classes and courses we offer for the summer. You will be able to register, track and pay for all your child's classes on this portal.
Our Beginners Coding Class uses "Scratch" which is a graphic programming language developed at MIT. This class provides a powerful learning tool for beginner programmers. Young students will learn fundamental programming concepts by creating animations and computer games with interacting characters. This class creates a beginner foundation in programming which can be used in other advanced languages.
Connectech has created its own curriculum to teach the students the fundamentals of coding. Students are tested during the class to ensure they grasped the concepts and if they are able to move on to the next level of coding.
Our Beginners Coding Classes introduce kids to in-depth programming concepts. In these classes, young students will use coding building blocks to build different adventures using animations and storytelling and games.
No previous programming skills are required, but students MUST be able to use a computer, mouse and must be able to read on their own.
Our intermediate Coding Class is aimed at students who have completed our Beginners classes. These students will using the block based programming language to learn more advanced programming skills.
This class encourages more creativity and problem solving skills and we expect the students to start thinking out side the box, creating their own games and animations at this level.
Ever wonder how YouTube, Google, Instagram, or Spotify were created? Introducing Python! Students will be introduced to computer programming and put new concepts to use by developing fun and educational programs.
Python I offers a great transition from our Intermediate Scratch class with block building to Python I which starts as block building but transforms to syntax coding. Students will learn to write code and build a series of projects and games through our text-based and graphical interface. By learning the basics of Python programming, students can expand their abilities to build games and animation using syntax coding.
Students are required to have completed 2 weeks of Intermediate Coding Class or have advanced level of programming skills in order to register for Python.
During Python 2 students will expand their abilities to build more complicated games using graphics, animation, and eventually applications. They will transitions from a web-based coding platform and be introduced a text editor.
Students are required to have completed 3 weeks of python 1 Coding Class or have advanced level of programming skills in order to register for Python. If you are unsure please email us at email@example.com.
We know your kids like to play Minecraft but how cool would it be to build their own MINECRAFT Games. During MINECRAFT Coding Class 1 students will learn “JAVA” to create their own games and projects in Minecraft. They will switch between block and syntax coding to learn advanced concepts.
Students are required to have completed Python 1 Coding Class or have advanced level of programming skills in order to register for Minecraft Coding. If you are unsure please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
mBot is a STEAM education robot that makes teaching and learning robot programming simple and fun.
At Connectech this class will teach them coding through a block-based programming, and develop their logical thinking and design skills.
Students are required to have taken the 2 weeks of Intermediate Coding Class.
