CodeMakers Clubs


 

Please note that we run two CodeMakers classes: 101 and 102. We highly recommend that students take 101 before enrolling in 102. If your student has previous programming experience please email sciencealive@sfu.ca to discuss enrollment in 102. 

What are CodeMakers Clubs?

CodeMakers is a computer science bi-weekly program run at SFU Burnaby that allows students to explore and innovate at an introductory (Codemakers 101) or intermediate (Codemakers 102) level. Both programs facilitate student learning and introduce basic robotics. These programs will show you how computer science is important is a huge number of fields and set you up with skills that will benefit you both now and in the future.

To ensure that all students feel comfortable in the class we are asking that prior to moving up a level, parents/guardians speak with an instructor to ensure their student is ready to move up! Similar to swimming lessons there is no harm in repeating, our goal is to make sure that all students continue to love learning to code. 

HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE TO JOIN?

Both CodeMakers 101 and 102 are for students in grade 4-7 in the 2019/20 school year.
