Learn to Code

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 on code.org. BYU Computer Science and Information Systems students will be class mentors.

Bryce Lund, a former Rock Canyon student, is currently a student at BYU majoring in Information Systems.  He is also a volunteer with the YServe-Kids Who Code group and will be our lead instructor for the class.  Bryce is prepared to teach a curriculum through the end of the school year that will help the kids build a solid foundation of coding skills.  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!  Every one 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!
