Introducing our Coding for Kids Club!  We now offer our coding classes and challenges in a weekly club format for ages 8-12+!  Our Coding for Kids Club will offer expert instruction in a group-learning dynamic with a new computer science focus each month.  Club registration is separate for each month, allowing you to participate during the months that work for you!  You may also choose between our Friday or Saturday groups.  Join the club to learn the basics of computer programming, build friendships, and engage your love of technology while learning life-long skills.

Club Schedule

PRICING:  $35/month:  Includes 4 Classes
REGISTRATION: 
 
Registration is now open for October & November!  Registration closes one week before each session begins.  There are no refunds for cancellations or absences.  

OCTOBER
Kodu: 
 Do you want to be a game designer?  This month we will use Kodu, a visual programming language, to create our own computer game!  Let your imagination run free as we create worlds, develop game rules, point systems, and more.

NOVEMBER
Spheros: 
 We’re bringing back some of our favorite coding challenges!  Throughout November, we will spend some time learning (or refreshing) how to write code for Sphero Robots.  During each meeting, students will be challenged to use their coding skills to make their robots complete a game or task.  Each student will have his or her own robot to work with throughout the month!  

JANUARY
Scratch: 
 Learn block coding by designing your own computer game!  Scratch is a free coding platform designed by MIT.  We will work together and use Scratch to program a computer game.  Students can then edit their games’ code to make it uniquely theirs!

Children of all abilities are encouraged to participate in our camps and classes. In order to ensure a fun and safe experience for your child, please inform us if your child has any allergies and/or special needs. Gilbert House Children’s Museum does not provide 1:1 supervision for participants needing assistance with personal care; however care providers* are welcome to attend camp or classes at no extra charge. Please email Julia Golden, Education Coordinator, at education@acgilbert.org if you would like to inquire further. Gilbert House Children’s Museum reserves the right to request 1:1 supervision for participants.

*Background Checks for Adults:

If an adult caregiver’s intention for staying is to help their child transition for a portion of the camp day, no background check is needed. If the adult caregiver’s intention is to stay for the entire camp or class to support a child (i.e. medical support, need for 1-on-1 support, etc.) they will need to complete a background check. The cost of the background check is $20 and parents will be asked to pay this fee.
