Class Experience

Create an interactive web game using HTML and Javascript. Students learn the fundamental concepts of programming like variables, functions, conditionals and loops by making a professional-looking web game with nothing but a text editor and some creativity.

Daily Schedule Monday-Friday:
Check-in & Review (15 min)
Check-in and Kahoot Quiz to refresh everyone's memory.

Coding Concepts (60 min)
Teacher demonstrates the day's project and how it will work. The enthusiasm sustains the students through the ups and downs of making the code work. Kids learn how to overcome things that "don't work" by figuring it out with the teacher. Coding concepts that will be used in the project will be covered during the first hour.

Break (15 min)

Project Coding (60 min)
Teacher demonstrates the connection between the concepts and the day's project. Students work on the project with frequent check-ins by the teacher. Students will have time to add their own personal customizations to the project. Ownership of the project sustains interest in the project and coding.
