In this module of First Code Junior series, we introduce an interesting tool for learning about science and computer hardware - Electric Dough. Electric Dough is a special dough that conducts electricity. Students make creative projects and experiments to learn about electricity, circuits, and the related scientific principles behind these experiments!
By playing with Electric Dough, students will learn various components and concepts in circuit electronics. Students will also gain better insights in how electricity works under instructor’s guidance, and they will understand better how electronic devices work in our daily lives!
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
