Kids Hour of Code with Suncoast Developers Guild Jr and Hivelocity
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Conferences provide a great learning opportunity for adults, but what about future programmers? Suncoast Developer's Guild Jr. and Start Up Week are excited to present a fun night of coding for kids ages 8-12. In this one night class, the students will be learning the basics of programming through fun activities and MIT's Scratch software. Upon completion of the course, kids will be receiving a certificate of achievement!

This is a FREE 1 night course on Thursday, February 15, 2017.

Please sign up and tell us the name and age of your child(ren) attending.

If you sign up and later find out your child cannot attend, please let us know immediately, so that your RSVP can be changed and opened up for other students.

Please read the FAQs below as they may answer your questions. For additional questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Liz Tiller at suncoast.developers@gmail.com.

FAQs:

1. What ages are the classes open to?
We welcome all ages 8-12 years old. Please remember, a parent or a guardian is required to remain with the student for the entirety of the course for students under the age of 16.

2. What kind of computer will the students need?
Both Macs and PCs are welcome! Please bring a fully-charged laptop and a laptop charger to every class. Please make sure that the laptop is in a working shape; we don't want to spend the class trying to fix computers when we can be learning.

4. What is the cost of the class?
FREE. Suncoast Developers Guild believes strongly that programming must be accessible at all ages, and kids classes are one way we inch toward making that belief a reality.

5. Do the students need to know how to touch-type?
Basic typing skills are helpful, but we will go at a slow enough pace for students that are not as familiar with typing.

6. What do students need to know before taking the class?
The course is for beginners. Imagination and love for computers are the only requirements for the class.

7. Are there homework/tests/grades in the class?
Our goal is for students to have a great time learning and playing with new tools and ideas. There are no tests, grades or homework. That said, we do expect students to be engaged in every class.
