Sessions: 11/7, 11/14, 11/21, 11/28, 12/5, 12/12, 12/19

In our Kids Can Code class we use the SPHERO SPRK+ to explore and teach coding.  

Sphero allows students to explore programming through play.  With the SPRK+ students can learn the fundamentals of coding; events, if statements, loops and more. The best part is that the kids can see how their code worked immediately enabling them to evaluate what they did, what they thought would happen and what actually happened.

This Problem Based Learning approach enables each child to develop his or her ability to think creatively, work collaboratively and reason systematically.

All seven, 60 minutes, sessions will take place at Code Play Learn, 132 N. Ridgeland, Oak Park IL 60302. Space is limited to the first 12 students.
