CODING

Coding is an essential skill for our modern world. Each code is a language and there are many different computer programming languages to learn!

At MAX, we use age-appropriate software allowing your kids to develop abilities and knowledge which will get them interested and put them ahead of the curriculum at school.

We recommend children - Grades 4 to 6 start with Scratch, a block-based visual programming language created by MIT, which teaches fundamental concepts of programming in an engaging gamified environment. Scratch concepts apply to all computer programming languages, and support future learning including Javascript, Python, HTML and CSS.

Coding sessions run for six weeks and can be completed in any order. Single class price: $150. Register for multiple classes or the entire 2021/22 season and save! All classes will take place at 34 New Cove Road.
