Course Description:

This course is online and self-paced with auto graded quizzes and tests. It is specifically designed for youth ages 11+ teaching JavaScript assuming no prior coding knowledge.  Students will learn to code using a free text editor, sublime text, downloaded to their own computer. Students will write all the code themselves following the online lesson tutorials.  They will learn coding concepts such as: functions, variables, properties, loops, intervals, if statements and much more.  The course concludes with a tutorial for students to code their own custom game!  This course is for both Mac and Windows computers and comes with eight full lessons of HTML website development as a bonus. We encourage students to use the live chat support for any questions that they may have along the way.  See syllabus here.
