Best preschool . . . check! Best public or private elementary school . . . check! Son or daughter inspired to be an active creator and maker in technology . . . huh? Register them for Fundamentals of Computer Coding!

Parents who desire their nine to 14 year-olds to learn fundamentals of basic computer coding, develop reasoning skills in a systematic manner and increase creative thinking skills as they make up stories, games and animation are encouraged to register their kids for this two-hour, twice a week Fundamentals of Computer Coding after-school class through First Colony Community Association (FCCA). Participants do not have to be an FCCA member to register and attend classes.

A well-known and highly regarded web-based program is utilized in order to build a creation step-by-step, and if it does not work out, the student fixes the creation. Students are required to bring their own laptop. Each monthly class session will culminate with an independently judged competition of completed projects. Kids love fun competitions! The students build on knowledge gained from prior classes, but new students easily integrate into each new month’s session. To register, call 281-634-9555 or walk into FCCA, located at 4350 Austin Parkway Boulevard. Cost is $195 per monthly session, and space is limited.
