Experience Level

Experience Levels

Whether your child is new to coding or already building their own games and websites, our coding classes will promote their growth within a safe, supportive environment. By challenging students at their individual level to create projects as unique as they are, we underscore the power of personalized learning. 

While our classes are tailored to each of the four experience levels below, our student-centered approach creates a fully personalized education experience, allowing students to be challenged at their individual level and pace. No matter where they’ve started, we’re here to help them get where they want to go.

Kids coding together on the computer

Young Beginner Code

Ages 6-8, co-ed

For young and first-time coders, we focus on fostering a welcoming and creative learning environment where students will develop a fluency with technology and start forming crucial computational thinking patterns. Students learn through specially curated activities in Code.org and ScratchJr, and advance into building animations and games in Scratch, a block-based programming language developed by MIT.

Beginner Code

Ages 8-14, co-ed

In our Beginner course, we use Scratch challenge projects as our core curriculum. By starting in Scratch, a block-based coding language, we skip over the small syntactic details of text-based languages and cut directly to the difficult part of coding: formulating one’s ideas into a logical sequence of steps. Students can jump into this class with no prior programming knowledge and in just a few hours build a foundational understanding of core computer science concepts through building games and animations. As they progress through this course, they’ll continue to learn essential programming constructs and develop a computational thought process that will prepare them for more advanced material.

Intermediate

Ages 8-14, co-ed

In our Intermediate course, students will create advanced projects in Scratch, a block-based coding language and move onto text-based programming in WoofJS, our JavaScript learning platform. WoofJS was developed by The Coding Space to allow students to leverage their existing Scratch knowledge and transition naturally into using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to make web-based projects. Students should come in with an advanced understanding of Scratch.

Advanced Code

Ages 8-14, co-ed

In our Advanced course, students will learn JavaScript, the language of the web, through creating advanced projects in WoofJS, our JavaScript learning platform, and web-based games, animations, and applications in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. As students grow their skills, they’ll rely less and less on our curricular guide rails and move towards self-directed learning where they’ll work with front-end and back-end technologies, experimenting with new languages like Python or Java to bring their ideas to fruition. Students should come in with experience in JavaScript or other text-based languages.

Teen Code

Ages 14-17, co-ed

In our Teen Code course, students will work in several languages depending on their experience. Beginners will learn JavaScript, the language of the web, through creating projects in WoofJS, our JavaScript learning platform. Intermediate coders will learn to build web-based games and applications in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. More advanced coders will take a deeper dive into advanced JavaScript or work in Python, Java, or another text-based language of their choosing.
