Code Combat (Grades 3-5)

Coding is not that hard at all, especially when you are playing a live video game! The educational game Code Combat teaches your child how to code in Javascript by having you input the commands to play a game. This is not a gamified lesson course, but an interactive experience that will test each student’s ability to code from the beginning to end of each level. Before each class we will talk about video game development and all the different stages a game will go through before it is completed. We cover concepts like: formal notation, calling methods, parameters, strings, loops variables. On the last class parents are invited to view and play all the games coded.

CodeCombat does contain cartoon violence, there is nothing graphic in either the visuals or language. If you are comfortable having your students play Angry Birds, you will be comfortable with CodeCombat
