Spring 2020 Course Registration

Spring 2020 Registration has closed. Our next program will start in Summer or Fall. Signup for our newsletter to be informed.

Introducing an exciting new class structure – 14 sessions starting from January 26, 2020!

We will begin each class with a simple programming concept, taught through Scratch Рan easy to use & visually appealing block based programming language. This will be followed with introduction to a new hardware component (like a sensor, motor, etc). We will then use the new programming concept to control the hardware component.  Example: Waving the hand to make a bulb glow.

8 yr to 10 yr old kids will complete their session in an hour.

11 yr and above will stay for an additional 30 minutes to apply the same concepts using  Python Рa popular programming language used by programmers of all ages!

Last 3 classes will focus on a fun project where the kids will design and program a self driving car for a rescue mission!

Class Timings:

For 8 to 10yr old kids – Sundays 1 to 2 pm OR Thursdays 6 to 7 pm.

For 11yr and above – Sundays 1 to 2.30 pm OR Thursdays 6 to 7.30 pm.

Fees:

8 to 10 yrs (1 hour sessions) – $200 + Equipment Fees

11 yrs and above (1.5 hour session) – $300 + Equipment Fees

Equipment Fees: An extensive list of electrical and electronics components (micro controllers, breakout boards, motors, sensors, wires, etc) are needed each week. All equipment will be provided by us, and at the end of the class, the kids can take the equipment along with them. There will be an one time equipment fee of $75 for this. Should the student return for an advanced version of this class, the same equipment can be used! If you choose, you can purchase the equipment by yourself as well. Laptop or Chromebook is required.

Below is a sample of a weekly activity in the class. This example is a reaction game. This game uses tin foils as a game pad. The player to press the tin foil first scores a point. Similar games/projects will be designed and programmed by the kids :
