javascript programming for kidsGrades 6-8. LIMITED AVAILABILITY

Javascript Programming for kids. Here’s a class for kids who understand the concepts of programming and are ready for the challenge of typing strings of commands.

Javascript is the language used to write many web pages and animate graphics. Learn about arrays, strings and loops while making your own animations!

This class is based on Khan Academy’s online, self-paced Javascript programming module. We’ll go over the lessons together and then help kids troubleshoot. Students who are ready to move ahead may do so at their own pace.

 

Khan Academy is a free online service. Students may use it on their own, at home. Our class combines this online teaching with instructors who can explain the concepts in person and help and encourage students as they move forward.

 

Note: Javascript is much more challenging for young learners than graphical programming. It requires typing code and patient attention to detail, such as making sure brackets and commas are placed properly, etc.
