Our Coder Tree®
What Do Kids Learn at theCoderSchool?
From game development to web development,
Scratch to Python, or even advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and beyond, our Code Coaches
can help your kids achieve their computer programming goals in their coding lesson. Our Code Coaching® program
uses a learn-by-doing method where their imagination's the limit to their learning.
The Stages of Progression
Beginner coders start in our Coder Tree®'s roote.
Kids as young as 7 might start their journey in computer science by learning critical
thinking concepts like problem-solving, logic, and sequential coding. Typical
programming languages at this stage include
from MIT or Snap!
from UC Berkeley.
While students are always practicing fundamental coding concepts, those who
are ready start building their next stage - the Trunk. In this stage, students
Kids may still be building their own games and apps, but these languages require more
rigor and typing to build them. This stage is about flushing out those rigorous
of web development, data structures, and complex problem solving in preparation
for more advanced technologies.
Advanced students still continue practicing fundamentals as well as basic
typed language concepts, but with those foundations can begin to use them to
learn more advanced computer science concepts through building in our Branches stage.
we teach many advanced languages from C++ to Java, Swift, C# and beyond. While
even our more novice kids are sometimes introduced to computer programming in
the Branches, only the advanced students who truly understand the underlying
fundamentals continue their programming work here. Artificial Intelligence,
Data and Networking with 3rd Party APIs, 3D Game Engines like Unity or Play Canvas,
these are some of the complex technologies we might touch on in the Branches.
What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids
learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music
lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding for kids?
We're among the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the
way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get
our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
