Our Sessions will focus on the coding requirements set-out in the Ontario Curriculum. To view these requirements click HERE.
- Each session will be 60 minutes in length and will come with worksheets that the students can use to plan and organize their work.
- A progress report will be issued to parents after class 6 and upon completion using a rubric similar to what teachers use to grade students.
- Students will also receive a 3D printed backpack tag recognizing them for completion of the course (local pick-up only, shipping $5 + HST)

- Q: My child already knows Scratch, why should they take the class? A: While your child may have taken a Scratch class before, their classroom teacher is going to grade them on how well they understand and incorporate key concepts (sequences, concurrent events, repeating events, nested loops, conditional statements, etc.) into their projects. Our sessions will be focused on helping students understand and apply the concepts in their code.
- Q: Will you be holding additional classes? A: We may offer additional classes later in the spring if parents request them.
- Q: Can I forward this email to a friend and will they get the discount? A: Yes, you may invite a friend to get the special discount. If they join, you get a referral credit of 10% of their first purchase.
- Q: My child is in Grade 7 or 8, will you be holding classes for these grades? A: we may if parents request. Email email@example.com if you are interested.
- Q: My child attended one of your previous coding classes, how is this different? A: This session is focused on helping kids learn the specific coding requirements outlined in the Ontario Math Curriculum. Progress reports and worksheets will be provided for this program.
- Q: What is a rubric. A: A rubric is a framework that lays out the learning expectations and is used to assess students performance against these expectations. Our rubric is aligned to the Ontario coding requirements by grade.
- Q: My child prefers in-person classes. Will you be offering in-person classes at your Studio? A: Yes, in-person classes are available and start Sunday, February 7th.
