A Bit of Background

Here at Kai Coders, we are driven by a single goal:  teachings kids valuable coding skills necessary for the 21st century. We do this by having experienced IT professionals share their knowledge and personal experiences in a friendly, collaborative, and productive learning environment.

Our teaching method:

  1. Introduce it - We gauge the general level of student understanding through polling and classroom discussion as we introduce new concepts.

  2. Relate it - Through real-world examples, students gain a deep understanding of complex concepts.

  3. Practice it - Solo and Pair programmers work to incorporate the concepts in to their code base, learning best practices along the way.

  4. Apply it - Students apply concepts learned to individual projects, which they showcase by giving demos at the end of the 8-week session.

Live  Virtual Lessons with Small Class Size

Learning is easy in a space where you feel comfy

Our program is designed to share the joy of coding.  Students' imaginations are sparked as their learning experience triggers their curiosity to discover more about computers and how they work.

 

Our friendly IT professionals teach programming fundamentals by relating them to real world examples. We then move those concepts into code as we facilitate our kids to create and share their own programs.

Class sizes are limited to 8 students.

Pair Programming

Professional programmers often work in a team, and we follow suit here at Kai Coders.

 

We strongly encourage teamwork, development of interpersonal skills, and  knowledge sharing. 

 

In addition to individual work, students will at times work in pairs for a collaborative experience.

Growth Mindset

Kids in our program become great problem solvers.  They learn persistence and realize that it may take many attempts to come to a good solution.

 

At Kai Coders,  we embrace putting in effort and making mistakes as part of the learning process.

Showcasing Progress

Giving project demonstrations is a big part of the learning process.  In addition to learning how to put together a cohesive and explanatory presentation, students get the opportunity to shine and show off their creations.
