Young Coders is an introduction to Coding (computer programming). Working with a partner, children will be exposed to 2 types of coding: block-based (using graphics/icons) and text-based (uses words or phrases). 

The course provides a playful introduction to the basics of computer science as children learn about commands, functions, loops, conditional statements and variables, while developing their problem solving and logic skills.

In "Young Coders: Drones", children will program mini-drones to do various challenges and navigate obstacle courses.
