Coding Club

Bridging the gap from Scratch to Java

Coding Club at Empow Studios is for kids who want to try their hand at creating games, animations, and applications by writing code. Club members will start with fundamental concepts using Scratch, an easy-to-understand, block-based, drag & drop coding language. Once kids are familiar with the basic concepts, we introduce Java, an industry standard language used in many of the applications running on your Android device, and in the 2nd best-selling video game of all time, Minecraft.

Open for kids in grades 2-8.

Due to high demand, we’ve decided to expand and create two coding clubs to accommodate parents’ schedules. Both of these sessions are the same curriculum, where kids are working on Scratch & Java projects at their own pace.

Cost

Club membership requires a monthly payment of $80 through a credit card or bank account on file with Empow. Monthly payments are processed on the same calendar day that you sign up (March 5, April 5th, May 5th, etc). We offer a 10% discount for multi-class registrations, and our classes are completely free to existing After-School Club members.

Schedule

Class meets once a week, on their club’s dedicated Sunday schedule.

  • Coding Club #1 meets 11:30am-1:00pm
  • Coding Club #2 meets 1:30pm-3:00pm

Additional Details

We provide all equipment necessary for the classes; Club members do not need to bring equipment. If they choose to bring equipment, they are responsible for damaged or lost items.
