Experiment with Coding
Our Proprietary In-Browser Coding Platform.
Fun1b teaches students computer science through block-based Java as they improve typing. After about 1 year of our course progression students will be coding at a high school level, and typically reach college level after 3-4 years. This course consists of 18 class sessions including a final project. Although students receive graded homework, most don't need to attend our office hours for homework help.
FUN1a, or permission of instructor. Proficiency in arithmetic and basic computer usage

Today we're making our own kind of "Where's Waldo" hide and seek game. How well can you hide your object?
Spot the Differences
Today we'll be introduced to how to keep track of lists in code. These can be super useful and let us make some really cool projects!
Using what we learned about adding things to a list, today we'll be making lists of words of different parts of speech to make our own Mad Lib generator.
Shift and Scale
Adding and multiplying are important things to know in math so today we're going to use code to help visualize what they do.
Today, we will be participating in the global computation challenge known as the "Bebras Challenge". Students will be tasked with solving computation problems at various skill levels.
Who's That Pokemon
Today we'll be doing a recap on all the different variables we've learned about and put it all together to make our own custom Pokemon card!
Platform games or "platformers" have been around since the earliest days of video games! Today we'll learn how to use Sprites to create a game where the goal is to stay on the platforms for as long as possible.

Today we'll use what we learned about lists and use it to compose our own music using code!
Final Project Brainstorm
Our last few classes are going to be all about working on making final project that you get to choose and make yourself! Today we'll be brainstorming and coming up with project examples as a class to give us a pool of ideas to pick from.
Class time will be dedicated to working on your final projects.
Final Project and Presentations
In our last class, we'll wrap up last minute fixes to our projects, show of our creations to the class, and have some fun trying each others projects.
