Finding electives for our children that they enjoy and that can provide useful information causes me to stretch my mind and opinons sometimes. Other times, I find things for our children to study that could ultimately help our family or each of them as they move through life. I am so excited to share with you about a coding class for kids from CodeWizardsHQ that we just finished. They also offer homeschool computer programs as well as coding classes for all students.
The courses are designed for children in 5th through 12th grade. While the courses are set up on a 12 week schedule, it is set up on a monthly subscription plan. The company offers incredible customer service and opportunities for learning. They even offer the opportunity for scholarships.
Our son had the opportunity to participate in a one-day special class. During the hour he spent with the instructor and other members of the class, he created his own comic book. Every time I walked into his room to check on his progress and to take some photographs, our son was actively engaged in the course. He frequently laughed or made comments. On several occasions I heard him ask questions. Because he was using a headset, I could only hear our son’s comments. When the hour long class was nearly over, apparently the instructor made some comment regarding the impending end of the class and our son was surprised at how fast time had gone by.
I think one thing that made our son happy was that he was also able to see what his classmates had created. Although, he seemed disappointed that he missed seeing one because he was finishing his own creation. Here is a video from the company. Click here for the link. And here is a photograph I took myself.
Here is what our 17-year-old son wants to say about this program in his own words:
I enjoyed it a lot. It was informative but at the same time relaxed, so I was more inclined to listen (as opposed to it just throwing information at you where I would probably zone out). I’ve never taken a class in a webinar style before,but even though it pushed me out of my comfort zone a little, it was fun and I would do it again. 10/10 – would recommend
As my son and I were talking immediately following the webinar, I asked him if he felt his previous coding experience helped or not. He felt this class would be good for any student regardless of their level of experience.
