Coding League

Tuesdays »

What happens when you’ve pushed the limits of block-based programming languages like Scratch?

It’s time to start using more powerful, professional-grade tools. HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are the building blocks of the web, and are the focus of our intermediate-level course for youth, the Coding League. Students use code to create websites. These websites range from informational pages on students’ hobbies and interests, to interactive games, and handy utilities.

Coding League participants should have some prior programming experience, such as a basic course at school or Awesome Inc’s Coding Club. Since we’ll be using text-based programming languages, students should be comfortable typing at 20 words per minute or faster.

Come back for as many sessions as you’d like, the fun and the knowledge keeps on building. Sign up with friends, or meet new people with similar interests.

Coding League Outcomes:

  • Go beyond block-based languages to use text-based programming
  • Learn Computer Science fundamentals
  • Explore the creative power of programming, start building a portfolio of professional-quality code

FAQs

Yes. Each student will need to provide his/her own laptop for the course. Microsoft Windows-based PC's, Apple macOS computers, or Google Chromebooks will work, but iPads will not work for this course. We recommend a laptop made within the past 3-4 years. Computers should be free from viruses/malware. We have a very limited number of rental laptops available for $25/day, which can be reserved online.

No prior programming experience is required, but students should be comfortable typing and using a web browser!

This course is capped at 12 students, so be sure to reserve your spot!

The Coding League is designed for students ages 11 - 14 (approx. 6th - 9th grade). Please inquire if your student doesn't fit that age range but you still want him/her to participate - info@awesomeincu.com.

There is a one-week gap between sessions 3 and 4 due to Fayette Co. Schools Spring Break.

Find it's not a good fit? No problem. We'll refund any unused portion, no questions asked.

Awesome Inc U is devoted to teaching coding skills. It’s never too early or too late to learn how to code. You don’t have to be a genius to learn to code, you just need to be determined. Check out what some of our past students have to say!
