Computer Programming is anticipated to be the fastest growing employment field in the 21st Century. Currently there are more computer science and programming jobs available than those who qualify for these positions. It is anticipated that this shortage will get even bigger, if the current rate of those graduating college are not earning degrees in this field. The younger that we begin to expose kids to coding, the more comfortable they will be in the science and math fields.
KEMET is not a school environment where kids sit, listen and then take test. We offer a hands on, interactive experience for kids. Not only do they learn but they have fun. KEMET offers after school and summer programs that introduce kids to coding.
INTRO TO PROGRAMMING
SCRATCH is the most acclaimed beginning computer programming language today. SCRATCH is used at Harvard and many other destinqushed universities to introduce people to coding. Kids can program their own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share their creations with others in the online community.
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. These are essential skills for life in the 21st century.
Kids ages 8-14 can learn professional Java programming as they design and build their own customized game. Software tools include Blender® for 3D graphics and animation, Eclipse® for Java coding and development, OWL® for 3D game design, and Multimedia Fusion 2® for creating video games, tools and apps.
Kids will learn how to create a real mobile app that can be played on their iPhone®, iPod Touch® or iPad®. At the end, students have the basic skills to create their own app and potentially publish it to the Apple® App Store!
Kids will learn robotics, programming and electronics all in one class. Kids will enjoy the hands on interactive learning that comes with designing and creating a mBot.
