- Having a birthday in lock down is a downer! But Ripcoder Club wants to help. This Friday we will be giving away a free Minecraft Coding Party. The winner and his or her friends will have Ripcoder's special coding server to themselves. They will play a game that allows them to earn points by finding and running special codes that build fun structures. If you know someone turning 9 or 10 years old in the next few weeks, leave a comment below why he or she deserves a Minecraft coding Party.read more
This Ain't Maths Class
Programming is play
We don’t run our Ripcoder club like maths Class. Kids spend long enough in school. At Ripcoder Club, Programming is play. Kids are free to share ideas. Show each other their work, or work together on projects. We strive to make our lessons engaging. Although kids will learn loads, our lessons are designed to hide the fact that they are actually working. We believe that laughter is the best route to learning. read more
Who What & HowRipcode Classes are small to ensure that every students gets the attention necessary for understanding.
Our students are taught by teachers who have both programming expertise and the ability to teach, to explain difficult concepts in a language that kids understand. They are trained in our specially developed curriculum.
Everything is Ready For You
Classes are taught on our machines specially configured with all the necessary programs, so students don’t have to waste time with downloading and setting up programs. This means teachers can focus on teaching code. But if students want to work on their code at home they can access their work from our servers. Course notes are also available online to our students. read more
They Don't Call it Literacy for Nothing
Computer Literacy is a basic skill.
More and more education experts believe that coding should be seen as a core subject like Maths and English. We agree. Although we focus on the fun in our classes we take teaching your children seriously, because we believe strongly in the advantages of computer literacy for kids. We put a lot of effort in finding creative ways to explain core programming concepts in child-friendly ways. read more
All About The Fun
It seems everyone, from President Obama to Mark Zucherberg says kids should learn to code. They say it will make them smarter, help them with Maths, it will teach them to think in a methodical way, it will help them get a good job when they are older, it will enable them to become drivers rather than passengers in the technical revolution. We say your kids should learn to code because it is really fun. RipCoder Club is all about the fun. Our curriculum is developed just for kids with the aim to spark excitement. Students make cool projects they can be proud of. We want our students a to be excited at what they are able to make, to thrill in their own awesome ability. If they grow up to own a gazillion euro company, that it nice too.read more
