This course aims to provide a fun and engaging introduction to foundation of computer science and coding with the Foos.
Foos are animated characters which can walk, jump, run and some Foos have special ability. However, just like computers, the Foos only do what they are told. Through the app, Code Spark (available on iOS/ Android), students will start exploring and solving puzzles with simple, animated block-based commands. Students will also learn how to give the Foos specific commands by putting individual blocks together, in a specific order to form commands to help The Foos solve the challenges. With each class, students will level up with the Foos and get to know about new blocks and command.
CodeSpark uses pictorial and textless blocks which is for students at the age of 5 years and above.
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
There is no more camp or workshop available in this holiday season, check out Core Programs or other Holiday Camps for continuous learning.
