If you’re a parent, you already know what a challenge it is to get your kids excited about something you know is valuable for their minds and their future. Whether it’s broccoli on their plate, a foreign language study program, or advanced math classes, motivating kids is hard work sometimes. They don’t have the same perspective we carry as adults. They don’t see things the same way we see them.
The GeekPack® Coding Camp for Kids is a curriculum I created with this in mind. I firmly believe that learning to code should be fun for everyone, but I also know that not all learning environments are created equal. The GeekPack® Coding Camp for Kids will teach your kids in-demand tech skills without sacrificing the fun and entertaining side of technology that they love.
Scratch is a fun, kid-friendly way to teach coding lessons to kids. Using drag-and-drop coding blocks like LEGO in place of writing out lines of code allows younger kids to create working computer programs in minutes.
With our 5-day Scratch Challenge, your kids will independently code their very first program! By allowing them to create their own characters using code, your kids can let their imagination be their guide as they unlock their creativity and bring their characters to life.
From learning how to program movement and sounds to creating their first classic game, you’ll be amazed at how many in-demand tech skills your kids will learn -- all while using fun and entertainment as the power of persuasion.
With the 5-Day Coding Challenge, your kids will begin to discover the magic of code! Lesson 1 will give your kids a basic introduction to code that won't have them screaming, "MOM! HELP!" every two seconds. Unlike a traditional coding school for kids, the 5-Day Coding Challenge will maximize your child’s coding skills without a hefty financial and time investment.
While I was creating the GeekPack® Coding Camp for Kids, I wanted a program suitable for all families, whether there was one child or ten siblings. With this in mind, there are two options for kids programming lessons: One that is suitable for all ages, and one for more advanced learners.
Kids of all ages can focus on learning the fundamentals of HTML and CSS using CodePen, an online platform where kids can build and test their programs. For more advanced learners, the GeekPack® Coding Camp will teach them how to build a static, two-page website using HTML & CSS from scratch.
While we know many parents want coding lessons for their kids to prepare them for their future, the GeekPack® Coding Camp goes a few steps further than traditional coding schools for kids. Unlike traditional classrooms with chalkboards and lectures, the GeekPack® Coding Camp engages your child’s imagination to build the in-demand skills we know they will need. In addition to the two weeks worth of challenges, your kids will also get hours of creating and coding bonus content to teach them exciting new skills!
The GeekPack® Coding Camp bonuses include:
The GeekPack® Coding Camp for Kids is more than just a coding school -- It lays the foundational understanding that creativity and learning can co-exist, paving the way for a brighter future in technology.
