Details

Tuliva is hosting a very special two-hour entry level course that will invite students to adventure into the world of JavaScript using Bitsbox (https://bitsbox.com/). BitsBox is a monthly subscription box that teaches programming with honest-to-goodness code that kids type in using a keyboard - just like the pros do. Participants will start with the code from Bitsbox provided booklets, then change it to make it their own.

If you want your kid to learn guitar - you don't start with Rock Band - you start with a smaller guitar! It's never too early to learn one of the most widely used languages for web developers in the world. This course will allow participants to use simple commands to create a cool app that really works!
