It’s time to pack your bags and dive into the world of STEM, coding, and robotics—no experience necessary! This intro course takes kids on a journey through 10 virtual CoderZ destinations where they’ll learn how to program and navigate a virtual robot using Blockly. Lessons include computer science, basic math, geometry, project development, and soft skills. Gamified missions break up the lessons into bite-sized chunks to set a comfortable learning pace.

Includes teaching guide with: solutions, reflection questions, guidance for assessment, quizzes, instructional videos, knowledge base, and class management tool!

Who this course is for: Teachers and students grades 4-6, without prior coding or robotics knowledge, but with an open and curious mind.
