INTRO TO CODING AND WEB DESIGN CLASS
What is the outline for the intro course?
ORIENTATION AND TECH CHECK
Explorers and a parent attend the Orientation and Tech Check before the first class begins. We ask parents to attend at the beginning to ensure your child is set up and ready to go through the tech check. Explorers will independently work through the tech check and parents will be invited back for the last 30 minutes of the meeting for orientation. Parents won’t be required again until the 4th class, the Expo.
Explorers officially meet their Nobel Youth facilitators and the team of Explorers they’ll be working with. They’ll work together to decide on a website they want to build.
Teamwork and coding go hand-in-hand as Explorers work together to start developing their website.
Explorers make progress on their website and discuss next steps and finishing touches.
CLASS 4 / CELEBRATORY EXPO
Explorers will present their project and share more information about the STEM and soft skills they learned.
CERTIFICATES AND NEXT STEPS
You’ll receive an email from Nobel Explorers with a certificate of your Explorer’s achievements and information about next steps.
What is the coding (hard skills) component of the Intro to Coding and Web Design course?
My Explorer has coding experience. Will the Intro course be a good fit?
Are there additional learning opportunities after the Intro to Coding and Web Design course?
The Intro class is just a first step in your STEM journey with Nobel Explorers. We offer intro classes on other topics, longer-term full classes that expand on subjects from the intro classes, and opportunities for leadership.
We will be in touch with information about next steps for your Explorer after the Intro class.
Why are soft skills so dominant in the classes?
We develop learners into leaders by equipping youth with the skills that will help them be ready for the future. STEM skills are undoubtedly valuable, which is why many of our classes are dedicated to helping Explorers advance these hard skills. There is a growing amount of research to show that soft skills – like teamwork, communication, collaboration, and problem solving – will be critical for the future. Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in combination with STEM will put your youth on a path to success.
