For Ages 6 - 8
As the application of computer science is integrated into more aspects of our children’s lives, it is important they understand the fundamentals. How do computers work? What is coding? How do software and hardware integrate? The course engages students by allowing them to discover the power of computer science through rewarding yet challenging concepts, including learning to code.
The main goals of this introductory coding course is to build a strong foundation to prepare students to advance to the Python For Kids course.
Young learners are introduced to core coding and computing concepts through the use of animated videos that introduce present these concepts in an age appropriate and fun way. Foundational topics include: Computer Programs, Computer Memory, Programming Languages, Inputs, Sources, Sensors, Color Detection, Time, Logic , Flow Charts, Counting, Sorting, , Repetition, Comparison, Variables, Idle, Conditional Statements, Break Loop, Infinite Loop, String Text, Programming Loops, Return Value, Type Conversion, Artificial Intelligence,
The concepts are then fully explored using worksheets and coding problems. Students code using a block interface that uses colors to differentiate among functions. This requires no previous coding experience and a second grade vocabulary.
Worksheets for students to take home as supplemental materials and a series of online quizzes to measure concept retention. Finally and most importantly – It is a Blast and Kids have Fun!

UCode runs a great program. Since the next generation loves technology why not encourage them to learn how to code. My daughter loves going to Ucode each week, she gets so excited to share what she learns and can't wait to learn advanced coding. The staff is always friendly and is great at explaining current projects my child is working on.
My son loves UCode! I did not think he would have the patience for programming but he seems to really enjoy it.
We have had such an amazing experience with UCode so far. It is incredible to see the boost in confidence that the kids have when they are successful with their coding skills. It is always a proud moment for them when they get to show off their projects. Thank you to Frank and the rest of the amazing staff at UCode for doing such a great job with our kids.
