Hi everyone! I'm Shivali, the founder and president of the local non-profit, Coding4Kids which serves elementary school children in the Milpitas Unified School District. We create coding curriculum and teach 85 students at several elementary schools the basics of Scratch. We are looking to expand our program through chapters to as many elementary schools as possible (even internationally!). The age group is students in third grade to sixth grade. We would provide you with the curriculum needed to teach. If you are interested in starting a chapter at one of the elementary schools near you, please contact me.

Who is building the curriculum?

Hi Derek! I actually create the curriculum on google slides so we can project the steps to writing the code on a bigger screen so all of the students can see it. Our current curriculum uses Drag N Drop and platforms like, MIT Scratch or Berkeley Snap. We choose this, as this is most likely the first time students have been exposed to coding. However, in January of 2019 I am working with a seperate team on curriculum which involves teaching students to build robots using Drag N Drop.
