Class Experience

Coding is a part of the computer science curriculum that is currently lacking in schools. I believe that all kids can code and it allows them to become creators and inventors, which is what we need our children to do as they get older.

Students will learn the very basics of what coding is.

Compare coding and giving a character a command.
Watch a video that explains how coding relates to us, coding, algorithms and debugging.
Work together to get the character, home by providing a code.
Work on code.org to begin coding tasks together as a group.
Coding is a great way to build social and emotional skills that include, perseverance, resilience and problem solving as well as creativity and innovation.

Students will learn vocabulary words, algorithm, program and debugging. They will begin to understand how to give a specific set of directions, and when they directions don't work, they will be able to find the mistake and fix it. They will also learn why coding is important.

Notes

not a must but will be required to do initial set up for the kids...

Loved:

The class was not held. Horrible and not professional to have a family change their holiday plans to wait for a class that was never held.

Improvements:

to have appropriate schedule. Notifify families with ample time that you are canceling the class. It is innapropriate to have children waiting for a notification. And not have the responsibility to contact us parents

Loved:

Fast Math camp was a horrible experience for my daughter. I wish I read the review above to know the common tricks used by this vendor. 1. The math levels were not customized by level and when my daughter asked the instructor ignored her request. (1 child was 5th grade and my daughter was 4th grade.) 2. Instructor was rude to our kids. 2. The instructor gave math problems to work on after camp via the zoom chat. Rather than formally sending something out. When I contacted the company

Improvements:

(the director) via email , they never sent it the first day and then sent the 1st and 2nd day problems at 2 am in the morning. Only giving my child about 1 hour during the morning to complete it. 3. The instructor did not appear over video. My daughter also heard large groups of people in the background. (My daughter thought she was walking on the street. ) 4. When the other kid in the class complained about the sloppy writing of the instructor (asking to rewrite it), she replied “it’s fine”

Response from Young Gates

Hi Christine We just saw your review and are sorry for the experience. We had even talked to you about it over the phone regarding the instructor suddenly losing a family member and having people, help coming over and created a stressed situation for the instructor. We also completely refunded the whole amount. The other student continued and left 5 star reviews and is still doing the program.
