Kids Code Jeunesse and LEARN offer several computer programming courses IN ENGLISH for children between the ages of 7-12 who are in the English school system in Quebec (public, private, home schooled).
The courses are offered using Zenlive, a collaborative online classroom platform.
Children will require a computer and Internet connection at home to access the virtual classroom where a trained computer programmer will teach a small group of children to code.
Over the course of the program, children build their own website, as well as learn about computers, the Internet, basic computational thinking and programming.
Registration for our next coding sessions will begin soon.
Intro to Scratch (ages 7-9)
Children will be introduced to Scratch, a computer programming language that allows children to learn creatively and reason systematically. No previous programming experience is required, but children should be familiar with the mouse & keyboard and the use of an Internet browser.
Intro to HTML/CSS (ages 10-12)
Children will learn the basics of HTML and CSS and apply them in order to create their own web pages. No previous programming experience is required, but children should be familiar with the mouse & keyboard and the use of an Internet browser.
Creative with Code using Scratch (Advanced Scratch, ages 8-12)
Children learn the basics of building an interactive project using Scratch. Students must have completed a Kids Code Jeunesse Introduction to Scratch course or have used Scratch in school or at home.
