Explorer Coding Program

Tailored for children aged 9-11

The First Code curriculum system is built upon the American computer science education system, combining European creative teaching system, the core literacy of the 21st century, and the core literacy of STEM disciplines.

We present a K12 coding education system in line with international standards.

The Explorer Coding course equips students to create projects with block-based programming tools, and then introduce syntax based programming languages.

Children gain understanding of foundational computer science concepts and grasp cognitive ability of programming. Through the study of different topics and cumulation of comprehensive knowledge, children can independently conceive coding projects.

Three-dimensional teaching training objectives

Computer Science Knowledge

  • Learn the concepts of sprites, movements, commands, loops

Emotional Development

  • Cultivate self-confidence and creative confidence to create freely on technology
  • Develop curiosity

Technical Skills

  • Gain proficiency on iPad-based coding tools
  • Create own projects using specific coding blocks

What will the child gain in the course?

“Everybody in this country should learn to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think”
Steve Jobs

Understand the world in a whole new lens

Through the study of coding and computer science, children gain understanding of our digital-first world from a technologist point of view.

Imagination, appreciation,

The Tinker Coding Program combines international standards on technology education, allows children to observe and analyze logically, and exert their imagination and creative ability.

Get more time with family

First Code’s course adopts an interactive one-on-one live broadcast method, conveniently saves children time to learn new things or relax.
