Computer Programming

What is Computer Programming Class?

Students learn to program their own video games and modify existing games. Creating and programming games offers the most complete application of math, physics, creativity, problem solving, and communication skills. Our levelled classes use a variety of programming tools such as Scratch, Python and Javascript geared towards the cognitive level and interest of the students.

 

Class Structure and Levels

LEVEL 1 SCRATCH – Students are introduced to computational concepts and all core programming structures. Younger students use the Scratch programming environment (developed at MIT) to create games and projects. Typing skills are practiced to prepare students for text-based languages.
LEVEL 2 PYTHON – Students build on concepts introduced in Programming 1 (or previous programming courses). Students transition from Scratch to text-based languages, Python and Javascript. Java is introduced toward the end of the course. Students are able to understand concepts that are common to all programming languages.
