Office hours are included for further help and personalized guidance. Learn more below.

Sample Schedule

Here’s a sample of what two weeks in this course could look like. Keep in mind students will progress at varying paces, and this is meant to serve as an outline of key materials and the overall experience. 

Teens begin by covering fundamental concepts of JavaScript and computational thinking, then dive into coding, starting with variable scope, arrays, loops, and functions. From there, they'll use a tool called JavaScript tutor to learn about data structures and data types. In addition, they'll explore different debugging techniques to enhance programs. They'll close out the first 5 sessions with an understanding of JavaScript coding concepts and a collection of profile-caliber projects that showcase their growing skills.

Building on their knowledge from week 1, teens will explore simple 2D animation, and build up to working with callback functions and some of the newest features of ECMAScript. From there, they'll explore the fundamentals of using the command line and learn about the GitHub cycle. They'll hone their skills as a programmer by exploring advanced web development concepts such as the document object model and learning how to perform tests to analyze JavaScript programs. Finally, they'll finish out strong by putting together a collection of projects that showcase their growing skills, creating a database for a GitHub profile that will impress colleges and potential employers.
