Learning coding will help your child develop problem solving and computational thinking skills that allows kids to grasp concepts like algorithms, recursion and heuristics — even if they don’t understand the terms, they’ll learn the basic concepts.
Coding is a part of the K-12 curriculum in BC.
It's becoming a mandatory in many countries, states and provinces.
Coding helps children with Math skills and improves writing academic performance.
It's a great career path. The IT industry is in constant need of new workers, and it’s not only coders or computer science majors — it needs graphic designers, software developers, and many more.
It's a well-paid job. For instance, a software engineer in British Columbia can make earn up to $69/hour. (Source: Job Bank Canada)
Bring your child to Marpole Oakridge Family Place and enjoy shopping and restaurants of Marine Gateway.
Coding Kids is created by people who have their own children and who work in computer industry. Our goal is to teach coding the way children start loving it.
Unique and exciting technology of virtual reality developed by Canadian company C3D engages and motivates children to explore and grasp coding knowledge.
Children's favourite characters like MineCraft help them to start loving coding from an early age.
No. There's a Marine Gateway with many stores and restaurants to keep the parents busy during the sessions.
Please bring the following to every session:
The duration of wearing a VR headset is normally less than 5 minutes within each session. Children wear a headset to look at the world they created on a computer.
One of the biggest concerns is the impact VR tech could have on kids' eyes. Parents have long told children that staring at a screen will make their eyes go square, but the American Academy of Ophthalmology says there is no evidence that long exposure to screens can cause permanent damage.
No, we never play MineCraft game. We're using MineCraft ideas, concepts and characters to engage students and help them grasp programing. MineCraft is great because as well as coding it's about building things.
