Students in Starfire Coding will learn programming concepts that apply to real world programming languages by coding games and animations. Learning to code is essential to understand the world that we live in, and how machines work. The process of learning to code teaches kids new ways to think about problems; to think critically, and how to break down and solve problems. Kids who learn to code learn how to problem solve, and use logic and systematic reasoning. Grades: 1-3.
