Curiosity goes hand in hand with coding! It takes a lot of imagination, experimentation, and logic skills just to operate in today’s world. In this class, we’ll read stories, play games, and create things both physical and digital as we embark on a crusade to think the way today’s innovators think. Your (caped) Code Crusaders will become comfortable with concepts such as algorigthms, programming languages, motherboards, and memory, so that they have the power to unlock the deeper powers of logical thinking and digital skills later in their educations!
