Class Description:
In this class children will build apps and learn about computer science in an engaging setting designed to encourage young coders with functional apps and appealing graphics. They will learn to program by creating entertaining apps that work using a special set of commands written in JavaScript, one of the most popular programming languages in the world. The commands are short, easy to type, and easy to understand for beginners. As kids progress, they’re introduced to more “raw” JavaScript syntax (vocabulary and grammar). The experience starts with lots of guidance, first showing learners exactly what to type, then quickly encouraging them to modify and expand their apps by typing in new commands. No previous programming experience is needed.
