Beginners Coding Workshop (January 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12)
WHAT ARE C.O.D.E. WORKSHOPS?
The C.O.D.E. Initiative workshops are for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) aged 8-15. This initiative is led by students from The University of British Columbia. Through this program, we hope to inspire students with ASD to explore their immense potential. The workshops provide a fun and interactive introduction to various beginner coding concepts.
Computer programming basics will be taught using SCRATCH. SCRATCH is a software that allows children to build coding blocks much like they would LEGO blocks to make the experience more visual. Students enrolled will be paired with a dedicated volunteer to mentor and guide them through several concepts of programming while creating games and animations.
Students will also get to disassemble a computer in the hardware section of the program. They will learn all about its important parts and functions!
These workshops offer a 1:1 teacher to student ratio to provide students with a comfortable learning environment where they can develop their coding and problem-solving skills. This ratio ensures that students can move at their own pace to gain the most out of the tailored experience.
The workshops will be at the Westbrook Community Center, 3335 Webber Ln, Vancouver.
WHAT TO BRING?
Students are highly encouraged to bring their own laptops. The model or year of the device does not matter. This is so that the students can practice the application we teach in class, at home.
If however, your child cannot bring a device, please do tell us and we will accommodate.
We will be hosting our Advance 2 coding workshops in March of 2019. These advanced sessions are either for students already familiar with SCRATCH/coding or students that have taken the beginners C.O.D.E. course & Advance 1. Advance 2 classes will focus more heavily on a text-based language as well as more computing concepts.
