Live Instruction

This summer package is ideal for students who are interested in learning JavaScript language. This course will help students understand the most popular front-end technology and will prepare them for a career as a Front-End Web Developer.

Over the course of 6 weeks, 5 days a week, 90 mins per day, they’ll join other students in a virtual classroom as they learn the fundamentals of JavaScript language. By the end of the 6th week, they should have a good understanding of the language and would have already created two gaming projects using HTML and JavaScript. Students would also learn basics of each technology used in web application development and design while also help them think algorithmically and develop good programming habits. Ideal for grades 10 through 12.

No prior coding experience is required, although it would be nice if students have already completed Coding Fundamentals Beginner Levels and Coding Fundamentals Intermediate Levels. Students should have reliable internet connection and good understanding/usage of computer and Zoom.
