Technology Classes

Virtually all aspects of our lives involve computers and demand for programmers is predicted to increase by up to 32% in just the next 5 years. Virtually all academic and professional careers will involve some level of coding and programming skills. Technology companies recruit people according to technical, coding and programming skills. We believe in academically preparing your child for this future -- and programming skills are as essential as they come.

6th Grade and Up - Learn to Code - HTML/CSS

Information

HTML and CSS form the foundation of the internet. Every modern web page is coded and formatted with these two languages, from the most basic to the most complex. Students can see instant results and there are no logic loops or functions so they make a great introduction to programming. All students will research a topic of their choosing and then design and build a website which will be hosted online at our Student Web site.

This class focuses on building a webpage. Students will begin in the Codecademy curriculum while they learn the basics and then move on to an independent editor to build their own page. The class will cover paragraphs and headings, links, images, lists, and formatting including fonts, colors, dividers, margins, and tabs.
This class is taught in eight weekly classes sessions of two hours per class. The class is offered three times during the school year, Oct - Dec, Jan - early March, Mid March - end of May.
The tuition is $590 for the class plus $39 for the course materials. ($42.41 including sales tax).

6th Grade and Up - Game Design

Information

Games have become an enormous part of our society with upwards of 90% of all children under 18 playing games regularly. However, very few of them actually know what it takes to make a game. We will teach them how to plan out a long term project and iterate on it until it shines with polish.

Game Design hinges on three main concepts: communication, logic, and fairness. Students will learn to communicate their ideas clearly, to make their rules logical, and to ensure that all players have a fair chance at winning. We will analyze existing games, then students will work on designing their own games. Once the design is finalized, they will build it in Scratch (MIT's drag and drop programming language).
