Gear up for a tech-savvy class at Gilbert House, available for ages 8-13. Designed to teach the basics of computer programming through a Kindle app, these classes will engage your child’s love of technology to equip him or her to employ strategies for solving problems by developing and testing solutions.

Students will learn how “languages” are used to instruct a computer to perform functions, and they will use our Sphero robots to carry out these functions.

Our basic “Intro to Coding” class will be offered on a variety of dates,  and  is the prerequisite for all other “Coding Challenge” classes. Registration is separate for each consecutive class, so you can choose the dates that work best for your schedule!  View class descriptions here
