Coaching Sessions

About this event

The videoconferencing workshops allow us to abolish the distance and get to your home! Just like our face-to-face workshops, these workshops aim to introduce your children to the basics of programming through our fun world of treasure hunting.

These workshops are aimed at children aged 7 to 14.

During 1 hour, your child is accompanied by one of our trainers to acquire programming concepts while having fun making Cody, our pirate robot, evolve in the universe of Golden Quest.

During this workshop, we follow the educational path defined in the catalog of the Golden Quest game. The first lessons introduce the basic principles, namely the syntactic rules, the main procedure, the elementary actions which one comes to combine to produce more complex displacements, the identification and the correction of simple bugs, notions on the loops rehearsal, as well as tips for moving the robot around the map. In each level, the objective is to program Cody so that he can find the treasure in time with the highest score.

Pedagogy

Coding Park offers fun workshops to introduce children to computer thinking through simulation and video games. Our methodology allows us to focus on the essential, thanks to a coding experience more realistic than the bricks of Blockly (Scratch), associated with a visual composition totally independent of programming languages.

  • Learn the basics of coding easily,
  • Prepare for real programming languages,
  • Learn to creatively solve logical problems,
  • Acquire concepts in English and travel in space.
