Mad Science of the Triangle is offering MISSION:CODE
a weekly programming class for students in the 2nd-5th grade. Students learn the basics of programming including variables, loops, and algorithms through a combination of unplugged and online activities. THIS IS NOT SCRATCH OR MINECRAFT.
MISSION:CODE is based on a programming curriculum developed in the Netherlands. It has been used worldwide to teach more than 130,000 children coding fundamentals. In MISSION:CODE, students write commands to move their robot through a grid and complete tasks. The solution is evaluated and feedback is given based on how efficient the code is. A progress tool shows how well students have mastered the programming concepts in the game and the lessons can be adjusted accordingly. Students have at-home access to the class content and game for 1 year so that they can continue to play and practice the coding skills they have learned.
When: Mondays 5-6pm, April 16 through June 11
Where: Mad Science, 1019 Passport Way, Cary, NC 27513
Cost: $99 (includes 8 classes, 1-year subscription to the MISSION:CODE site)
This is a Bring Your Own Device program. Mad Science is not able to provide computers or tablets. Mission: Code runs on PC, most Apple devices, Chromebook, and most tablets running the most current versions of Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer 11+.
