If you believe your child can keep up with a course, feel free to sign them up)
Mondays 8:00 PM PST, Saturdays 1:00 PM
This class prepares students for the AMC 8 and MOEMS math competitions. For AMC 8, students will learn algebra, geometry, and probability. Students will practice on sample problems from various year's tests and learn from qualified instructors and past competitors. For MOEMS, students will cover past question papers.
Recommended for 4th - 8th graders
4th - 6th: MOEMS
6th - 8th: AMC 8
Intro to Coding in Scratch
Tuesdays 8:00 PM PST, Saturdays 3:00 PM
In this class, students will learn fundamental programming concepts using Scratch, a block-based coding language with visual outputs using Sprites. Topics covered will start from variables all the way to more advanced topics such as looping and basic algorithms.
Recommended for 2nd - 5th graders with little to no prior coding experience
Intro to Coding in Java and Python
Wednesdays 8:00 PM PST, Sundays 1:00 PM
In this class, students will learn important programming knowledge in Java and Python, two of the most common coding languages. Students will select one of the two languages to learn. The concepts covered will be the same for both languages. At the end of the course, students will create a final project that has taken the form of a guessing game, the tic-tac-toe game, and Pac-Man in the past.
Recommended for 4th - 8th graders with little to no prior coding experience.
Intro to Computer-Aided Design (CAD)
Thursdays 8:00 PM PST, Sundays 3:00 PM
In this class, students will learn how to use the program Onshape to create 3 dimensional designs. CAD is an essential part of engineering and is extremely useful for everything from personal projects to building airplanes. Students will learn how to create sketches, 3D assemblies, all the way to creating their own final project. Past final projects have included working keyboards, rubiks cubes, and more!
Recommended for 4th - 10th graders with little to no prior experience
