Computer coding is for everyone! Everyone can learn to write code with CodeWizardsHQ!
Learning coding gives kids the skills they need to thrive in our digital world. My son learned to code when he was 6 by playing Minecraft. He would have loved CodeWizardsHQ. Read below to find out why CodeWizardsHQ is a great choice for your kids.
Anyone can learn to write code.
Why should we teach our kids to code?
Understanding computers and learning the basics of coding helps children to develop an appreciation of how things work. It also teaches them how software engineers use math in order to solve problems in a logical and creative way. Learning how to code is important as it teaches our kids how to solve problems.
Coding is important to learn because computer programming teaches children to experiment and gives them the confidence to be creative. They will have the chance to design something that is entirely their own. It’s amazing the creative games and activities kids can create with coding. Coding doesn’t have to be boring, in fact, coding can be fun!
A Structured Coding Program for kids:
CodeWizardsHQ’s online coding classes for kids and teens are developed to target learning at the age and stage of our students. Classes are structured so that students build their coding skills and confidence as they advance Wizard Levels.
How do the Wizard Levels work?
Wizard Levels are the foundation of the structured curriculum. Each student gains experience and advances Wizard Levels as they complete classes. The curriculum is progressive so they must be taken starting with the first course. Each class assumes that students understand the concepts in prior courses.
If your child has prior coding experience, they can take the placement test to find the right class for you.
One Wizard Level is made up of 4 courses, each course is 12 lessons. In our weekly class, each Wizard Level takes one academic year to complete. Students who take an accelerated two or four times a week class will complete each Wizard Level sooner. At the end of each Wizard Level, students take a Capstone class to build a challenging project with the skills they’ve learned so far. See the chart above to get a better understanding of the Wizard Levels.
Students who have completed the Elementary School coding program will skip to Wizard Level II in the Middle School coding program. Once they’ve completed the Middle School coding program, students will skip to Wizard Level II in the High School coding program. At the end of the High School coding program, graduates have the ability to participate in the High School Internship program and get real-world experience through a partner nonprofit.
The Wizard Levels give students continued achievements to strive for and reinforces their coding skills.
All classes are 12 weeks long. Each Wizard will receive a certification for their achievement at the end of the class.
How much time will the classes take?
Expect a weekly time commitment of 2-3 hours. 1 hour of class time, plus 1-2 hours of practice time, with teacher support throughout, including weekends. Don’t worry, if your child misses a class, there is a video or pdf for every class. And be assured, they have live homework help to keep your kids on track
