In this module, we teach the basic principles and logic of programming. We work with the Code.org platform and create our first games and projects using drag-and-drop blocks. We get to know the various functions, loops, conditions, variables and parameters and get to grips with more complex projects. "Computational thinking helps us to develop solutions to programming problems. We also deal with internet security, digital footprints and get to grips with the use of AI tools.

Final certificate: Junior Programmer

In this module, we start with HTML and CSS and create visually appealing, functional websites. We then learn JavaScript to design animations and interactive games. Using Python, we will look at syntax, terminology and basic concepts and develop algorithms for encrypting and decrypting messages. At the end, we take a first look at WordPress to get to know the functionality and versatility of this platform.

Final certificate: Junior App Developer

In this advanced module, we delve deeper into HTML and CSS and learn how to create high-quality websites with HTML tags and CSS frameworks and make them more interactive with JavaScript. We delve into the PHP programming language and the MySQL database management system and learn, among other things, how databases are set up, managed and connected. We gain practical experience in WordPress development with PHP for themes and plugins as well as in the creation of search templates, pagination, archives and other elements.

Final certificate: Frontend and Backend Developer

In the last module of the programming course, we dive deep into the world of Java, JavaScript and React and use Eclipse as an interactive development environment - we acquire basic skills that are in high demand in software development. We also deepen our React knowledge in app development and create our own mobile applications for Android or iOS at the end of the module.

The group programming classes take place one afternoon per week (2:15h incl. break) and are not held during school vacations. One-on-one instruction is booked individually and the dates can be set flexibly.

The kids can study coding with us for a maximum of ca. four years if they want to complete the entire program. It is also possible to leave the program earlier at any time. We will issue a certificate of the completed modules.
