Weekly Coding Classes for Y1 – Y9 Students in Hornsby

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Beginners Stage

Join our weekly coding classes for kids in Hornsby at Hornsby Youth & Family Community Centre. The Coding Fundamentals, Beginners coding course consists of four levels and 25 projects. The main goal of the course is to ensure students understand the fundamentals of coding and are able to create software projects including a famous Breakout game, developed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Slither.io, created by Steve Howse. Using block-based coding in Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab) students will be introduced to the main computer science concepts & coding terminology such as loops, conditionals and variables. Students will be closely guided through creation and will be allowed to work on their projects independently. By the end of the Beginners stage, all students will go through a formal assessment and parents will receive individual reports outlining achievements and progress of their child.

Join our weekly coding classes for kids in Hornsby at Hornsby Leisure and Learning Centre. The Pro coding courses are designed for those students, who want to learn industry standard programming languages such as Java, Python and C#. In Java classes, students will focus on Object-Oriented Programming concepts using Processing and will code digital art projects and games. Python students will learn how to write code in Python and create a variety of logic games. In C# classes, students will master their skills while learning 3D Game Development and creating 3D projects using Unity 3D. The main goal of each Pro course is to make sure students are able to create independent projects by the end of each term. Prerequisites: students can only take part in these courses if they have completed a full year of Advanced level and / or recommended by their coding teachers. By the end of the Pro stage, all students will go through a formal assessment and parents will receive individual reports outlining achievements and progress of their child.
