Hart College Launches Fun Coding Program for Grades 6-9 in Toronto

Hart College, a well-known school in Toronto, Ontario, has started a new and exciting coding program just for students in grades 6-9. This program aims to teach young learners the important skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the quickly changing world of technology.

The program, called “Coding for Cool Kids,” promises to unlock the superpowers of programming for young tech wizards. By jumping into the world of coding, students will have the chance to make their own games, create amazing apps, and bring their wildest ideas to life. The program is designed to make learning fun, encourage creativity, and allow every student to shine.

The main focus of this program is an interactive adventure in Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) using Alice and Java. Students will go on exciting quests, solve challenging puzzles, and create cool 3D worlds and games. The journey will introduce them to the magical world of Alice and Java, where they will meet other adventurers and form teams to tackle exciting challenges.

During the 10-week course, students will learn about programming basics, make characters and classes, explore inheritance and polymorphism, and master encapsulation and abstraction. They will learn to create characters with unique looks and behaviors, customize actions and interactions, and design and animate dynamic scenes featuring their creations.

As the program moves forward, students will conquer advanced OOP concepts such as abstract classes, interfaces, multiple inheritance, and nested classes. They will develop mini-games and interactive experiences that respond to user input, showing their understanding of OOP concepts and their growing technical skills.

The program focuses on collaboration, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Weekly challenges and quests will test the students’ abilities, while group projects and code battles will give them chances to show their creativity and teamwork. Interactive discussions and written reflections will encourage thoughtful analysis and help students understand the material better.

To ensure a successful learning experience, Hart College has equipped its classrooms with modern computers featuring the Alice and Java development environments. Students will have access to textbooks and online resources on Alice, Java programming, and OOP concepts. Experienced instructors will guide them through the fascinating world of OOP using engaging quests, puzzles, and challenges.
