Computational Thinking – Fast Track


    Computational Thinking is the heart and soul of Computational Thinkers.  It’s where it all begins.  This class is what sets up apart from all the other Computer Science Educators out there.  We feel that students should be strongly rooted in core fundamentals before getting mentally hypnotized to think that “Every Child Should Learn to Code”.

    We offer this class for students as young as 4 and upto 5th grade.   Though the concepts we cover might be similar between classes, we are digging in deeper each year.  It’s the same teaching techniques for a math class.  We learn math every year but it gets more and more complicated with each year.


    Computational Thinking is the thought processes involved in formulating problems and their solutions so that the solutions are represented in a form that can be effectively carried out by an information-processing agent.

    It’s not required, but makes the class more productive, if each student possesses the following skills:

    • Has completed a full session of the Bits class (nice to have but not required)
    • Can count without difficulty
    • Starting to understand addition and subtraction concepts
    • Has started working to improve typing skills (uses two hands to type, practices home keys)
    • Starting to play around independently on computers
    • Feels comfortable navigating around on an iPad
    • Follows instructions & likes to learn new things
    • Inquisitive
