Helping "Future Proof" the youth of the Caribbean

KIDS WHO CODE (Online Programme)

Have your children experience the power of coding!

 

At TEN Habitat we fundamentally believe that building the future of our region and driving innovation means exposing our youth early to the amazing world of technology and leadership. If the COVID-19 crisis has taught us anything, it is that we need to be creating more digitally savvy systems. To do that however, we need to be developing individuals with the skills to make it possible. And we need to start now!

Our KIDS WHO CODE initiative helps kids from as young as 7 years old to build a foundation for their future by learning to code. We use the language of code to teach kids the principles of creative thinking, problem solving, team work and leadership. We help them explore their curiosity by helping them uncover what is possible through code. Youth between the ages of 7 and 16 years old learn core programming and leadership concepts through engaging games and immersive exercises. All taught in a live virtual classroom.

Our programs are now bootcamp based, running in 4-week stints and starts for those who have never experienced right up to advanced students. We help students build the foundation for an adaptable future.

What students Learn?

Start creating with code!

The tools used by KIDS WHO CODE encourage students to practice creating and collaborating. Students design their own levels, games, and characters using Real JavaScript!

  • Be able to make Mazes for classmates to solve

  • Build Characters and more using JavaScript

  • Build games using JavaScript

  • Share and play creations with classmates

We make learning code fun and easy! Move from Symbols to JavaScript and Python through our workshop stages

The workshop phased approach used helps students learn the most popular programming language in the world - JavaScript! KIDS WHO CODE build a solid foundation to gradually make the transition from with symbols to actually writing code. 

  • Learn advanced concepts in a game environment

  • Cover variables, data types, objects, classes, and properties

  • Concepts account for the beginner to the experienced

The Programme

Students are broken into three categories: Beginners, intermediate and Advanced.

 

Beginners: Students who have never coded or had limited exposure.

Intermediate: Students who have some working knowledge of coding principles or have passed through our beginners workshops. They are able to understand and build simple algorithms and process coding concepts and commands.

Advanced: Students who have coded before and can demonstrate an understanding of the various coding concepts. Advanced students must be evaluated prior to being included in the advanced classes.
