Coding camps from home ages 8-9

In light of the oubreak of the Corona virus, to support you the parents, we have decided to provide educational, creative, fun solutions for all children confined to home. Our coding camps for ages 8-9 allow your kids to log into their class from their home computer, meet their experienced instructor and classmates. This introductory course invites kids to create games, videos and stories, while learning the foundations of coding so there’s no need for previous experience. Kids will get to know the Scratch learning environment, its friendly animated characters and cool graphic design tools. They will create fun games by dragging and dropping built-in blocks of code, which will help them implement the internal logic and structure of programming.

Student testimonials

Kids have fun learning online, creating and innovating with us. Don't take our word for it - listen to our students' experience!

Course Curriculum

Students will get to know the learning environment. They will start by creating simple stories involving no more than one character and gradually progress to programming advanced games that combine multiple characters, commands and design tools.

Projects

Say Hello

Say Hello Introduction to Scratch. Students will get to know the teacher, their classmates and most importantly the development environment they will work on during the entire course. Students will learn basic concepts such as: stage, character, event and command.

Playing animals

Playing animals Students will create their first project, in which they will choose an animal and make it play an instrument. They will learn commands involving sounds, costumes and sizes. The project is programmed by dragging and dropping built in commands. Students will share their project in the virtual development environment.

The Story of Pico and Tera

The Story of Pico and Tera Students will create an interactive story using multiple backdrops (backgrounds), events and timed motions. In order to create their story students will be introduced to the x-y grid (axis). They will learn how to make a character move or turn, how to create an event, change backgrounds and time the various commands.

Catch the Worm

Catch the Worm Students will create a game that combines advanced coding concepts such as: loops, conditions and variables. They will place the characters on the stage by using the x-y axis and create an opening screen for their game.

Math Quiz

Math Quiz Students will work on a project that combines random questions, gathering user data and adding animation features to the characters.

TekkieUni teaching team

How we make it work

TekkieUni specializes in operating live-online sessions with full real-time interaction guided by an experienced and attentive teacher, because we believe that with a little help every child who wants to learn – can!

  • Learning together

    Learning is all about connecting. That's why we use a video conference software allowing the small size group of children to get to know each other and their teacher. The teacher uses a shared screen option so everyone can see what she is doing on her desktop, and kids can fully participate in the lesson by using the microphone or the chat.
  • Help and Support Forum

    Learning continues after class too! Each class opens a Whatsapp group, where they can ask questions and talk to their instructor and new friends. We also have a live online forum, which is manged by the instructor, where kids can open discussions after the lessons, and get help at any time.
  • Project-Based Learning

    Students learn by doing and work on interest-based projects, which create a fun class dynamics where we don't present the answers but look for them together.
