BCS Young Coders After-School courses, spring-summer 2024
Our classes are designed to introduce young students to the fundamentals of modern coding and to show how powerful and diverse coding could be. Classes are taught in English. Our main areas of interest are web development, web games, programming fundamentals.
Barcelona Code School (BCS) coding classes are dedicated to igniting the problem-solving skills and innovative approach in children. We try to explain fundamental concepts behind constantly changing hardware, software, apps and gadgets. All of our instructors are real world developers and coders willing to share their skills with students and help them to design and develop their own projects.
“My son spent the Easter-break with Barcelona Code School, and – besides having a lot of fun – he learned a lot. We’re looking forward to your summer coding school! Well done team! Definitely recommended.”
— Andras Bacsa
During the workshops kids discover computational, algorithmic and system thinking, programming, design and prototyping in the context of computer science. We strive to transform kids from passive users to inventors and creators, skills which are crucial for the future entrepreneurs and visionaries.
For classes we use different approaches and materials, from game-based platforms to professional grade tools and environment for some serious coding.
While searching for solutions during our workshops kids acquire higher order thinking skills like critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, communication and creativity.
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 17:30-18:15
With web playing more and more important part of our lives it gives a lot of possibilities to reach out to the entire world via online presence which requires having a website for any kinds of personal or business project.
With online presence we can create communities of like-minded individuals, publish our work of art or science, share our passions via text content such as fiction, poetry or science, videos, audios or anything else and reach out to the world.
By creating browser-based games or web apps we can keep students engaged and motivated with seeing the resuls in the browser right away and being able to share them with friends and families.
