CODING & ROBOTICS CLASSES
TEKNOKIDS CODING: SCRATCH (ONLINE)G3-5
In Teknokids Coding: Scratch, your child will become an expert at the Scratch programming language. Students will start by learning the basics of animation and interaction with computer programs using programming fundamentals including sequences, loops, and conditionals. Students learn with fun projects that include storytelling, music and art. More advanced concepts including functions and variables will be also be covered and the course will culminate with a series of stunning game design exercises. The content and skills obtained in this course will fully prepare the students for text-based coding including HTML and CSS. A must for any student wishing to explore the exciting world of careers in STEAM. No prior coding experience required.
TEKNOKIDS CODING: HTML/CSS (ONLINE)G5-7
In Teknokids Coding: HTML/CSS, students get their first introduction to text-based coding through designing their own websites using HTML and CSS. Front end web design is an essential element, not only for technology driven careers, but also in the arts, marketing and communication fields.

TEKNOKIDS CODING: PYTHON (ONLINE)G8-10
TEKNOKIDS EARLY (IN-PERSON)G1-2
Give your kids a head start with technology by enrolling them in our fun-filled Technokids Early program. Your child will gain experience with building simple robots using a unique rivet based platform, and programming of robots that introduce coding concepts to young learners.
TEKNOKIDS JUNIOR (IN-PERSON)G3-4
In the Teknokids Junior program, your child will learn about and build a variety of robots that incorporate sensors and motors. Your child will also learn about physical concepts such as center of gravity and friction and use an introductory visual drag-and-drop coding language to solve simple problems. This program is excellent for developing fine motor skills as well as providing a solid foundation for future programming courses.
TEKNOKIDS INTERMEDIATE (IN-PERSON)G5-6
In the Teknokids Intermediate program, robots are used to deliver a structured coding program that focuses on fundamentals (such as sequences, loops, conditionals, functions and variables). The students will demonstrate their knowledge of coding by completing numerous problem solving challenges. The students are also introduced to physical concepts such as velocity and acceleration and will learn to apply these to design and modify motorized robots. The students also build robots that use both, gear and servo motors. Your child will also learn about the fundamentals of electricity including safety, working with motors and create simple resistive circuits.
TEKNOKIDS SENIOR (IN-PERSON)G7-10
