Course Description

The third course in our elementary curriculum is an important milestone for students as they graduate from Scratch and take their first step in actual programming using text-based code. This course reinforces the concepts they’ve learned and gives them the skills to convert the visual blocks into written code. We will use our one-of-a-kind game-based platform makes learning to code as fun as playing a game. After this course, students are ready to tackle a more serious introduction to the Python programming language.
