Coding Club at the JCC in Newton

Bridging the gap from Scratch to Java

Empow Studios Coding Club at the JCC in Newton 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.
