Have you ever felt nervous speaking in front of others, in class, or in front of a camera? This STEM Learning Lab will help you to overcome your fears, improve your communications skills, and practice in a safe environment. This Virtual 4 week Learning Lab meets online twice a week.
Grades 6-8 Wednesday & Friday 9:am - 10:30am
Grades 9-12 Tuesday & Thursday 9:00am - 10:30am
This 6-week course is an introduction to Python, a powerful typed programming language. Students will learn the fundamentals of coding in Python, including syntax and commonly used concepts. They will create fun projects to apply the concepts learned and learn how to de-bug their code to solve problems in real time. This Virtual 6 week course meets online twice a week.
Grades 6-8 Tuesday & Thursday 3:30pm-4:30pm
A "club" atmosphere for our girl coders - inspired by the book "Girls Who Code." Students will learn about different female coders throughout history and their impacts to computer science and engineering. Students will use Scratch, a program created by MIT, to create animations and how to be creative through story-telling and code. Students will also learn how to use code to create pallarax scenary, snowfall, sprite movement, button navigations, "hide and seek" adventure animations and more!
1.0 -Great for beginning coders who are interested in making their own video games/animations using Scratch, a program developed by MIT. Students will create three interactive games, each teaching and solidifying the logic and concepts of coding.
2.0 - Ideal for intermediate coders (with previous experience and/or have finished the 1.0 TGC/C4A program) who are interested in continuing their coding journey in Scratch. Further in-depth development of existing Scratch knowledge while learning more advanced concepts and the steps of game development.
Ideal for beginning coders who are interested in web design. All projects will be created with HTML and CSS.
Ideal for intermediate coders who are interested in web design. All projects will be created with HTML, CSS and Bootstrap. Create an interactive website portfolio while learning the basics of building a website.
Ideal for intermediate coders who have experience in Scratch, Python or any text based language (and/or have completed C4A 2.0). All projects will be programmed in Lua — the same programming language used in Roblox! **Students must own a Mac, Linux or Windows device. Learn to code and create a top-down adventure game and learn the steps of game development.
Ideal for intermediate coders who have experience in Python, Lua or any text based language (and/or have completed Game Development 1.0 course). All projects will be programmed in Lua — the same programming language used in Roblox! **Students must own a Mac, Linux or Windows device. Learn to code and create an 2D platformer game and learn the steps of game development.

Students will be practicing math, logic, and analytical thinking, while designing fun games from the safety and comfort of their homes. theCoderSchool remains committed to your students' education and will adapt whether online, in-person (when permitted), or a hybrid approa
The students will learn how to use Scratch created by MIT and will become familiar with foundational coding concepts such as:
Inputs/Outputs, Variables and Variable Manipulation, If/Then Statements & Conditional Statements, Event Loops (such as For-Loops, While Loops and Forever Loops). In addition to these concepts, students will also learn about the impact of technology in the real world.
According to the National Math & Science Initiative, STEM job creation over the next 10 years will outpace non-STEM jobs, growing 17% as compared to 9.8% for non-STEM positions.
Jobs in computer systems design and related services are projected to grow by 45% between 2008 and 2018. STEM workers can expect higher salaries.
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Silicon Valley, theCoderSchool combines a super-small teaching ratio with an individualized immersion style to get your kids learning to code in no time! We don’t believe in kids being taught by software, and we don’t like one-size-fits-all curriculums. Instead, we focus on a mentor relationship with experienced coders.
“In a few short months, he has learned to code his own games through Python and Unity. […] I feel like I am giving my son a gift he will carry for the rest of his life.”
– theCoderSchool Irvine Parent
“Seriously impressive school. My kids who are not naturally technical yet have truly adapted to the idea of coding”
– theCoderSchool Cary Parent
