Nr of Students: 0/16
Coding and Robotics Club for 7-9 year-old students at SCHARN


This super fun 1.5 hours/week course will provide you with the coolest programming skills. You’ll start learning how to read and write HTML, CSS or JAVASCRIPT and will move at the end of our curriculum path towards other more complex languages like PYTHON or PHP. But that’s not all! You’ll learn how to manage databases, servers or build your websites with the coolest CMS in the world: Wordpress and Drupal.


Robotics is the other half of our course. You’ll receive robotics training every other month. With Lego WeDo 2.0. you will learn a lot of engineering, how to program sensors and motors and a lot more. Arduino will complete your robotics training, with it you’ll learn electronics and solve a lot of super cool challenges.
After your full robotics training... the sky is the limit!


You will become a master in MIT Scratch (Visual block coding) with which you will construct your first games, learn how to build your sprites, backdrops, program your game’s characters to jump, fly or shoot, learn about variables, how to deal with lives, score, levels of difficulty and so much more.
At the end of this curriculum we’ll move onto a real gaming development software that will allow you to publish your games on any real gaming platform.

All our curriculum paths include a robust training for our students to fully understand the internet environment in general.

Develop the necessary skills to become self-reliant, have an in-depth understanding of how so-called ‘fake news’ are technically created, how online media can affect your decision-making or the true (and technical) meaning of hacking among other social technology-related topics.
