2017 Kids’ Weekend Coding Classes

After some great experiences with Winter code and creation programs, we’re offering some weekend crash courses to Dallas children between New Year’s and Summer.

These Crash Courses are great if you can’t make our week-long camps, or if your child needs some exposure to coding, but you aren’t certain where to start. Click on the camp title for more details or to sign up today.

Scratch Challenge

10:00am – 3:00pm   $150.00

This weekend Crash Course is perfect for both for beginners who want to learn to create in Scratch programming language and more experienced users who want to make more complicated games or tell stories with Scratch.
