Virtual- Games, Animations and Stories using MIT Scratch (Ages 6-14)

Students adventure through code as they begin building animations, games, music, videos. They sculpt their coding muscles in this coding adventure and leave having learned to code using this very easy to use tool for block-based coding from MIT. Learn basics of Visual Block Programming using MIT Scratch. Acquire basic programming skills and coding concepts that professional programmers use in their daily work. Harness opportunity to think, to imagine, to explore, to create while having FUN! Learn and apply computational thinking concepts to create games and animations. *No prior experience needed. Students will be grouped together in breakout rooms as per their skill and grade level. Classes will be held via zoom. A tablet (iPad or Android) or a computer/laptop with wifi connection is required to attend these classes.*  

Virtual- Augmented/Virtual Reality (Ages 6-14)
In this course students explore the creation of virtual tours, storytelling, games and simulations. The beauty of this approach is that it allows for creativity and coding in multiple dimensions (3D, voiceover, music, video etc.). There is no limit to what one can create! *No prior experience needed. Students will be grouped together in breakout rooms as per their skill and grade level. Classes will be held via zoom. A tablet (iPad or Android) or a computer/laptop with wifi connection is required to attend these classes.*  

Virtual- Mobile App Development (Ages 9-14)
More people rely on mobile devices to meet their needs than ever before. The technologies used to create these apps are expanding and improving quickly, so it’s an exciting time to start learning Mobile Development! Learn mobile app developments and deploy app o on both iOS and Android platforms. *No prior experience needed. Students will be grouped together in breakout rooms as per their skill and grade level. Classes will be held via zoom. A tablet (iPad or Android) or a computer/laptop with wifi connection is required to attend these classes.*  

Virtual- Minecraft Modding (Ages 6-14)
In this course students get to go beyond just playing Minecraft, they get to program it! They create mods in Minecraft by learning programming concepts and applying them to realize their ideas. *No prior experience needed. Students will be grouped together in breakout rooms as per their skill and grade level. Classes will be held via zoom. A tablet (iPad or Android) or a computer/laptop with wifi connection is required to attend these classes.*  

Virtual- Program in Python (Ages 10-14)
Python is a popular language and is widely used across multiple industries. This class is taught at Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced levels and is designed to help students with very little or no computing background learn Python and use it in various use cases such as Machine Learning, Web Development, Data Sciences etc. *Some block based programming experience (like MIT Scratch or similar) is preferable but not required to attend this class. Classes will be held via zoom. A computer/laptop with wifi connection is required to attend these classes.*


Virtual- Python with Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (Ages 11-16)
This course is designed to help students with some computing background to learn Python and use it in various use cases such as Machine Learning, Web Development, Data Sciences etc. Among other things students will get to learn to create a self driving car, fine tune it, customize it, select a track to race on and try to complete the track in least amount of time using AWS DeepRacer Self Driving Car. *Students will need to have basic understanding of variables, operations, functions, data structures like dictionary, etc.. Classes will be held via zoom. A computer/laptop with wifi connection is required to attend these classes.*

Virtual- Game Development with Roblox  (Ages 10-14)
 This course is for ages 10+ and provides the perfect way to learn programming, 3D modeling & game design with Roblox Studio. Learners make amazing professional quality games that they can play with friends and family, or even sell on Roblox marketplace. *No prior experience needed. Students will be grouped together in breakout rooms as per their skill and grade level. Classes will be held via zoom. A tablet (iPad or Android) or a computer/laptop with wifi connection is required to attend these classes.*  


Virtual- Vex Robotics (Ages 6-14)
Learn Computer Science and Robotics concepts at home without a robot. VEXcode VR lets you code a virtual robot using a block based coding environment powered by Scratch Blocks. VEXcode VR is based on VEXcode, the same programming environment used for VEX 123, GO, IQ and V5 robots. *No prior experience needed. Students will be grouped together in breakout rooms as per their skill and grade level. Classes will be held via zoom.
