Computer Science & Coding

The CS & Coding curriculum, created by Tynker and Code.org1, is designed to be educational and easy to understand by K-5 students. The lessons use simple to learn, drag and drop technology, to help facilitate students learning of CS & Coding principles. They also feature cartoon and video game characters to captivate young learners. Each lesson reinforces concepts and skills taught in other subject areas by integrating Math, English Language Arts and Sciences standards into the course curriculum. By the end of each course, students create interactive games or stories they can be proud to show their friends and families!

Why does Computer Science & Coding Matter?

By 2020, there will be 1 million more computing jobs than graduates to fill them, resulting in a 500 billion job opportunity gap.1 Austin’s demand for qualified Computer Science (CS) & Coding graduates is high. These Coding opportunities are being offered to job candidates outside of Austin’s technology community, because we do not have enough qualified candidates to fill these positions. We believe that learning CS & Coding concepts at an early age helps build student’s interest in CS and students have an experience to develop CS & Coding skills early on in life. Consistent learning of CS & Coding skills help students and graduates obtain quality job opportunities in the future.

Social & Emotional Learning

COMING SOON!

Success is often determined by a healthy mindset. In this course students will improve their self-management, social awareness, and relationship skills. They will also learn how to manage their emotions, resolve conflicts, and make responsible decisions.

As we teach our children the future of technology, it is just as important we teach them to be good citizens. We believe it is critical to develop lifelong skills at an early age when you begin to make sense of the world around you and where you fit in. Austin Kids Can! is committed to helping at-risk children of Austin grow and achieve success in the 21st century.

Programs will start in Fall 2017.
