Elementary: 3 months courses

This immersive 3-month course gives students hands-on experience with our block coding based robot, Sphero and a chance to apply learned coding concepts in other programs such as Minecraft! Students will make new friends, develop new skills, and think of original solutions to problems.  The course includes 6 lessons where students learn programming fundamentals and operate their robot to navigate obstacles and create pictures. Students will transfer this knowledge into Minecraft and explore the limits of their imagination! Beginner English learners and novice programmers are encouraged to join.
