Mastery Progression

Coding Junior:
Intro to Coding I (K-8)

Students learn programming skills while creating their own games and music videos. Zaniac’s instructors introduce basic programming concepts like sequences, loops, iterative development, and debugging using the coding application of Minecraft and Scratch, a block-based program developed at MIT.
Monthly 4 Week Tuition: $199

Coding Apprentice:
Coding II (K-8)

Students will learn more advance programming skills with Scratch. They will dive deeper into the concepts of interactive software design. Learn variables, ‘if, else’ statements, conditionals, operators, and more to create simple games, at the end of the semester they will be able to create their own animation, interactive game or video.
Pre-requisite: Intro to Coding I
Monthly 4 Week Tuition: $199

App Creation (K-8)

Students learn how to create new customized apps using App Inventor 2, a block-based, visual programming approach designed by MIT. They will explore event handlers, timers and database management.
Pre-requisite: Intro to Coding I and Coding I
