Over the past 2 weeks at FICS, youth have been learning coding through individual and collaborative activities. With the use of code.org, youth “play” game-like activities by coding their next move.
Coding lessons integrate Florida State Education Standards in a variety of subjects. Coding has been proven to improve reasoning, critical thinking, reading, and mathematical skills.
In its first two weeks, two young learners completed the first course in record time! In addition, youth compete in a friendly completion, seeing who can code the most lines and complete the most levels.
Here are some photos from the past 2 weeks:
Coding4Success is a new program that teaches youth computer programming. It is open to ages 7-16. A event calendar of classes will be released soon on our home page.
