An Intermediate Coding program for Kids ready to move beyond Block based programming

Many Coding Programs teach “Scratch” or some other block-based programming and leave it there. This serves as a great foundation but you need to build something on top of this foundation.
There needs to be a bridge program before kids directly jump into serious programming languages like Java, Python etc.

This is where scripting languages like JavaScript come in. Check out the full curriculum of this Intermediate program below.

What Our Coding Program Offers

Meticulously Crafted Transition to JavaScript

We use state-of-the-art platforms, so students from Scratch and code.org feel right at home learning logic first and slowly warming up and learning the syntax and delve into Code based programming.

Curriculum That Keeps Kids Glued to the Program

We use the game development to start teaching students how to code. So students learn how games are made, make their own games which they can share with the world while at the same time, learning all they need to learn.

No Need for Parent Tutoring or Intervention

We take care of children right from teaching them how to use the platform to guiding them through practice through assigning homework to progress report. And since all this is online, you don’t have to step out of your home.

2 Modules to Jump-start Code based Programming

Level JS01

Suggested for Grade 5 and above

This is the next step from Block based programming. Students will learn how to do basic operations in JavaScript. They learn concepts like drawing shapes, plotting them, randomization, variables, sprite design and features implementation. This is also a Game based module.

The final project is “Catch the egg” which will implement the same logical concepts but now the students have written it with Code as opposed to dragging and dropping blocks.

Level JS02

Suggested for Grade 5 and above

Students dive deep into the world of programming and game development with JavaScript. They master skills like velocity, collision detection, collision mechanism, complex sprite movements, and functions while learning the higher level concepts of game design philosophy. This is a pivotal program before moving on to more advanced programming languages as this starts to talk about concepts like functions which are super important.

The final project is “Break Out” or for those who remember old Nintendo it is “Arkenoid” which is quite advanced in terms of code based implementation for a middle/high-schooler.

Methodology

formal instruction

Student Code Review

A class starts with the review of previous coding topics. Students show the code they made for review.

teacher-guided practice

Formal Teaching

The teacher takes the coding project one step further and teaches whatever is need to accomplish this.

self-guided practice

In-Class Practice

Students implement the code they have just learnt and the hurdles they face can be solved by teacher.

assessment

Homework Project

Students are assigned a parallel homework project which they can finish using the concepts.

Benefits

after school enrichment

Boosts Creativity

We not only teach how to code but also prepare students to solve practical problems. We teach them how we can take a real world situation and translate it into coding algorithm and proceed to build code around it. This enables students to think objectively and more creatively.

Why Choose 98thPercentile

Guided Learning

There are many self-guided platforms to learn Coding. In fact, even we use some of the best ones like Code.org. However, it is highly unlikely that a student is motivated for a long time to finish the entire program on his/her own. Our programs are teacher guided so there is a discipline and help if a student is stuck somewhere.

State-of-art Platforms

We use the best resources in the world to teach our students how to code. Platforms like Code.org and Scratch are of international standards which people all over the world use. This helps us give students the best teaching instruction possible with the added benefit of a teacher guiding the whole learning.

Creativity Boosters

All our programs are designed in such a way to challenge the students' creativity. It is a moment of pride for each student to show their homework project in the next class. Every program includes Show & Tell after a significant project where parents are invited and students explain their project and do a demo.

Small Batch Sizes

We accept only up to 4 students in a Class. And when a batch begins, it’s all done. No more getting in. This lets us give personal attention to all students and boost their learning speed. We can also make sure no child gets left behind and achieve awesome results.

Friendly Competitions

Our small classes of up to 4 students mean that students compete with their classmates to make their projects look more awesome. This sparks an interest to learn an extra step to get ahead of the class. This is the best motivation for kids to achieve excellence.

Comfort of your Home

The program is executed online so it can be taken from the comfort of your home. You don’t need to ferry your kids to and from the learning center, sit in the lobby for hours and waste your time. Sit back, relax while we work on making your child the next Bill Gates.

Well Planned Curriculum

We add on to the world class curriculum built by platforms like code.org. These are carefully designed based on the learning capacity of the grade a student belongs to. Our additions make it even better by introducing teacher guidance, additional Capstone projects and public speaking & presentation skills.

Fully Managed Program

Right from day 1, we take care of installing the required tools for the projects to guiding them through the various stages, sitting with the students and troubleshooting any problems they might have, making sure they have mastered a concept before moving on to the next, giving adequate practice, tracking progress. We take care of everything.

Life Skills Included

Along with teaching them how to code, depending on their age and learning capacity, we teach them few more concepts like presentation skills in the form of “show it to your parents”, video recording and editing skills to effectively market their product, learn more about internet and cyber security to keep them safe from online fraud, etc.

FAQs

We have Coding programs catering to Grades 2 & Above. While the Beginner’s program is recommended for Grades 2 to 6, the Intermediate program is recommended for Grades 5 and above. For Intermediate program we highly recommend a pre-requisite of BL-Guru module.

Our English programs are run by Native speaking teachers in U.S.A.

Our Math and Coding programs will have teachers mainly from India. 

The way this works is, you take a free hour of code which is modeled exactly how our actual classes happen. The teachers could be same or different depending on which hour of code you joined and which module you are signing up for. Our Coding programs are backed by 2 weeks satisfaction guaranty. When you sign up for a program, if for some reason you are not satisfied, you can let us know in the first 2 weeks, and we will be glad to return any money you might have paid.

We do not take any new students once a batch commences. We recommend checking the upcoming classes and book in advance.

We take utmost care to only hire the best of the teachers. We also train the teachers significantly before we put them in front of a student. We are very confidant this is a highly unlikely scenario. Despite of all that, our programs guarantee satisfaction. Just let us know before the 2nd week of classes, we will gladly return all money. 

We take great care in starting classes on-time every time. However, emergencies can happen and we will make it up by offering an extra class.
