## Technology Entrepreneurship Early Exposure

### Coding Foundation - Square Animation with Turtle

Turtle is an inbuilt module in python. It provides drawing using a screen (cardboard) and turtle (pen). To draw something on the screen, we need to move the turtle. To move turtle, there are some functions i.e forward(), backward(), etc. In this project, students use various core coding concepts learned in the program such as variables, conditional statements, loops. It enhances their logical, analytical and imaginative skills.

### Build Logic with Block Based Programming

Clay Shooting is an interactive game in which the player has to aim at flying clays using a crosshair. The clays fly in random directions and the player has just few seconds to shoot it. The clay breaks into fragments when it is shot and the score increases. In this project, students use various core coding concepts learnt in the program such as variables, conditional statements, loops, events etc. It enhances their logical, analytical and imaginative skills while at the same time being engaging and fun.

### Entrepreneurship Step 1 - Build a Website

This is the final project where students create a blog to share their experiences and stories with their friends and family as well as the entire world. Students create their own travel blog where they can post pictures and videos of the places they have travelled to and write about their journeys and experiences. In this project, students showcase their various website designing skills using images, videos, strips, boxes, menu, different pages along with other skills. Plus, they incorporate their writing skills as a bonus!

### Serious Block Programming - Build Super Mario

The Mario project is based on the famous Super Mario Bros game from the 1980s. The ‘Mario’ sprite has to dodge the enemies and collect gifts and coins on its way to the castle. It is a large and interactive project where students build multiple pieces of the games – various sprites like owl, duck, gifts, pipes, scene and more, and combine them together. Students use various coding concepts like conditional statements, loops, variables, events and broadcast to build this complex game which enhances their logical, analytical and imaginative skills, as well as practicing perseverance. They can also share this game with others to play and showcase their skills.

### Enter the world of real Coding and Game theory!!

In this project, we use the JavaScript program to generate a random word, and the objective of the user is to set hangman free. Wrong guesses about the characters of the randomly generated word will not set hangman free. Every user has 7 chances to guess the character, then after that, the game will be over. Students use various interesting topics of JS like Functions, Strings, Conditional Statements, Loops, and arrays in creating the Hangman Game. We will make this game in a Node.js environment.

### Methodology

###### Student-Centered Approach

Teachers and students both play an active role in the learning process. The teacher facilitates comprehension of the material while constantly and actively measuring student learning. Students are engaged and involved during the entire class session where the teacher gauges their understanding through questions and discussions, and then the student demonstrates their mastery through independent practice.

###### Differentiated Instruction

Our program is designed to meet individual student needs by maintaining small classes, no more than 4 to a class. While the bulk of each session focuses on a specific concept or skill, time is allotted to address individual skill gaps and lessons are provided as necessary. This is to ensure no skill goes unaddressed as your student advances to the next grade level.

###### High-Tech Approach to Learning

Technology plays a massive role in our program, as we are 100% online. Through integrating traditional teaching methods by using devices, applications, and the internet, students are able to connect with committed teachers and peers from around the country to engage in material and learn.

### FAQs

The vision is to create a coding program for the student, to ensure that they explore all the vital technologies of the market and make an effective decision to pursue the specific selected technology. The final goal of the program is to create future technology leaders and enhance the necessary skills for creating tomorrow’s Technology Entrepreneurs.
By 2030 approximately 40% new jobs would consider coding and technological skills necessary for the high paying jobs. Our intention is to provide introduction of vital and necessary technology to kids in an interesting and efficient manner to make them curious for the magical and promising world of coding and technology.
You can simply enrol for free trial classes, and after registration you can join regular batches as well.
All our curriculums are created by teaching experts, all the lessons of the program are in efficient mapping with the complexity and the standards of coding standards necessary for the corresponding grade. We have extensively used core concepts of pedagogy, activity-based learning and storyboards in making the class an overall joyful and learning experience for the kids.
At 98thPercentile, our vision is to offer a live, online, differentiated, acceleration program for K to 12 students in Math, English (Reading & Writing), Coding, and SAT through MULTI-AWARD WINNING curriculum and platforms, at an unbeatable cost that is up to 4 times cheaper compared to many other programs as a managed service.
Our teaching methodology is non-repetitive and aims to challenge students by introducing new concepts and skills each week. Our comprehensive program is one of a kind. We are the one of the best learning centres to provide instruction in Math, English, Coding, and SAT all under one roof.
A laptop/desktop (with a webcam), a notepad (to make notes) and an internet connection is all that’s needed to join online classes.
Our Coding program philosophy is NOT to make students experts at one or more Programming Languages. It is ALL about EXPOSURE. Guided by real Entrepreneurs and Tech veterans from companies like Microsoft, it is a combination of building Technical and Leadership skills.
Our coding program has multiple modules for all grade levels; each module has multiple activities/projects with a final capstone project that combines everything students have learnt during the module.
Please note the following unique features of our program.
• Our Coding program hosts 2 classes per week with Mon/Wed or Tue/Thu or Sat/Sun options.
• It is a 12-Weeks Recurring Subscription program.
The program is modular, meaning, depending on which particular class you are trying/enrolling, it could be teaching any one of the modules listed on the detailed curriculum for that Grade level.
Yes, students get certificates by 98thPercentile after successful completion of Modules.
