About this Course

This course is not currently accepting new students.

Class 1

  • Students will learn how to set up a Scratch project, add characters to their project, learn how to trigger blocks of code through event listeners, and start learning about coordinates and movement.
  • Students will create the first part of their project, including the setup, and create several blocks of code to make the diver move around with the arrow keys.

Class 2

  • Students will learn more about if statements, how to move characters using coordinates, and how to sense when two characters are touching.
  • Students will create the second part of their project, including blocks of code that will allow trash to be collected as it moves across the screen.

Class 3

  • Students will learn to use loops to repeat code (and why loops are important!) and about how to create and use variables.
  • Students will create the third part of their project, including blocks of code that will make the timer and score keeping part of the project work. They will also begin writing the facts and tips about how to help reduce ocean pollution.

Class 4

  • Students will learn how to broadcast messages from one character to another and about basic string manipulation.
  • Students will create the final pieces of their project to make it a fully functioning game.

Meet Your Instructor: Luiza Wolf

Hi, I'm Luiza! I'm a senior at Duke University studying Biomedical Engineering and Electrical Engineering, but I fell in love with computer science through my various personal projects and internship experiences. I really enjoy making things, which is why I was drawn to computer science. Learning to code means that we're able to explore our ideas more quickly and creatively than we might be able to otherwise. Now, I want to help others find their own reason to love computer science. I have experience instructing a variety of subjects in different settings, and started teaching computer science in 2019.

Real Reviews from Real Parents

4.9 out of 5



My 3 sons ages, 10 1/2, 9 and 7 started using Juni in early June 2020 and absolutely love it. The instructors are college age kids and they relate to my boys very well. My oldest is doing both the coding and math tracks and I feel like he will be way ahead of his 5th grade class come the fall. Once the other two are old enough I will certainly be enrolling them in math as well.

Juni has been amazing for my daughter. She is a reluctant learner when it comes to Computer Languages, but the Juni instructors have been engaging to her at a level where she feels comfortable with them and they manner in which they present the curriculum. They understood my ask that I Wanted her to start liking computer languages, and they are presenting the information in a way that is fun and relatable. I am very happy with my Juni experience and my daughter's journey with Juni so far!


I have two boys taking classes and the Juni takes the time to match the right instructor for my children. They are patient and very consistent in their teaching. The boys are thoroughly enjoying their class and love accomplishing and learning new things!
