Kids Who Code

We will add Kids Who Code to the Enrollment Form as soon as we know which day of the week the BYU mentors will be able to come to our school.  We are planning to start the class the week of Sep. 11.

Come learn how to code! All are welcome, from total beginners to advanced coders. We’ll be focused on learning computer programming basics and concepts like variables, conditionals, loops, data structures and more with fun, interactive activities to teach Python and JavaScript.  Volunteers from BYU YServe-Kids Who Code will be class instructors and mentors.

  • Who:  3rd-6th grades
  • When:  Monday
  • Time:  3:30-4:30
  • Where:  Faculty Lounge
  • Class Starts:  Jan 8
  • Instructor:  Tyler Moessing

Students will be learning Python and JavaScript.  Consistent attendance in this class is critical, as the lesson material taught each week builds on the previous lesson.  Please make sure your child is committed to attend each week so that he/she stays caught up with the class and receives the full benefit.

Silicone Slopes says there are not enough candidates in the pipeline to fill all of the positions they have available.  Help your child prepare to be a future Silicone Sloper!  Many of the Kids Who Code volunteers have said they wish they had had an opportunity to learn coding starting in elementary school.  It would have given them a huge jumpstart toward their education and career in CS, IT, IS and other technology related fields!
