Sign up now to be a part of BadgerBOTS Spring Afterschool Classes.

BadgerBOTS Afterschool classes are for students currently in 3rd-7th grade. The cost is $120 per student.

Classes will be one day a week for 2 hours and will progress over 6 weeks. Each day there are two class times, 4:00-6:00 PM and 4:30-6:30PM.

Since class is right after school, we will have a nut-free snack for everyone one hour into the class. We have a place to keep snacks if students need/want to bring their own. Please no nuts in any snacks brought from home!

Session I will begin the week of February 13th and Session II will begin the week of April 17th.

codecombatCode Combat – Learn Python:
Thursday 4 – 6 PM OR 4:30 – 6:30 PM
April 20 – May 25
In Code Combat, students will learn real, typed code – Python, to be exact. Weekly lessons will go over the basics and a review from the previous week. Then students will use what they have learned to complete Code Combat “levels”. Each student will pick a “hero” and will need to use Python to help find treasure, fight bad-guys, and protect the villagers! It is all the fun and problem solving of a RPG but with the expectations of real code (don’t forget that semi-colon!). There will be a lot of typing in this class, so students should be comfortable with the keyboard. Some experience coding is helpful, but not necessary for the class.
