Curriculum


What do you teach?

At MVCode, we teach a variety of platforms and lessons including MIT Scratch, Javascript, Unity, Arduino and more. See all of our platforms.

Do you use a specific curriculum?

We use a combination of tools based on the needs of ours students. For certain platforms, we've found using existing tools works best, like CodeAcademy. However, most platforms have inadequate or incomplete tutorials so we have built a large library of lessons and curriculum for our students.

My child has already done [Scratch / Javascript / Arduino etc]. Is this still a good class for him/her?

Yes! Each student is tracked individually, and works on a variety of platforms. Our instructors will work with your student and family to provide instruction that is appropriate for their experience level and interests.

Don't I have to pick a technology or platform for this class?

No - in fact it's better not to. Schedules are grouped by age / peer group. Friends can work at the same time, but on different things. We have an extensive database of lessons and individualized tracking on what is appropriate for each student.

My child really wants to work on a specific project or technology. Can you help him?

Yes! Have them bring it in, and we can work on it together. We try not to limit ourselves and are excited to help our students explore new platforms and technologies.

Can we access the program at home?

Yes! In fact, the program is designed with that in mind. Most students who come into MV Code Club spend a good amount of time working on their lessons at home, that way we can help them w/ bugs in class.

Class Structure


When are classes held?

During the school year we offer scheduled classes Monday - Friday at 3:30pm and 5:00pm. Drop-in OpenLab sessions are available on Saturdays and Sundays 9am - 3pm.

How many students/staff per class?

Class sizes range between 6 - 10 students depending on age group. We always maintain at least a 8:1 student/staff ratio.

My child is a beginner. Is that a problem?

Absolutely not. Students work on their own self-paced lessons with their own computer. The experience of their fellow classmates will not affect them either way.

How do you track their progress?

Instructors write notes on each student’s progress and future learning goals at the end of every class. Weekly lesson plans are also sent out by our Lead Instructors to help keep students and parents aware of the current goals.
