10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm
The first hour of the workshop is direct instruction where the instructor will cover the basics of block programming, focusing on a different aspect each session. In the second hour of each session, students will be able to work on projects using these learned skills and/or to work on their own scratch projects. Instructors will be present the entire time.
Session 1 is for students in 1st – 3rd grade. Session 2 is for students in grades 4th – 6th grade.
We ask that guardians drop off their children and pick up their children at the end of the session. We want students to be able to focus on the instructor and projects for the whole 2 hours of the session. You may hang out in the Discovery Cube or leave until the end of your child’s workshop session.
Closer to the start of the first workshop, you will receive an email with additional information about the workshops. Please be sure to check your junk or spam folders, as sometimes our emails end up in spam folders. If you have additional questions, you can contact customer service at (714)913-5040.
We suggest bringing a jacket, as the room where Code Club Cubed is held can sometimes get cold. Otherwise, your child does not need to bring anything to their session. We will provide all equipment/technology necessary for the Code Club.
