Product Description

The importance of learning to code at a young age

Coding and programming in schools are becoming a central concept in many academic institutions these days. Aside from the practical impact of coding and programming for future careers, it also offers other benefits for children learning the process. For both, the academic and non-academic performance of the children, coding tends to make a positive impact. Several educational institutions now introduce coding in their curriculum, including universities. It seems like the world has become more dependent on technology nowadays, and knowledge of coding is an advantage in the professional world.

 

Academic impact

Coding and programming help children learn mathematics, in a practical way, since they start to visualise abstract concepts. Children are encouraged to see the real-world application of mathematics instead of relying solely on abstract figures that sometimes they cannot relate to. Children might also improve in writing because of the development of coding skills. Children learn the value of planning before starting a task. They also learn how to be concise but accurate.

 

Extra-curricular impact: the development of skills for life

From experience over the last five years, we noticed that children tend to develop other skills through coding. Coding involves creative thinking, We stimulate children to be creative. Problem-solving skills, sometimes children tend to expect to be right all the time. However, coding teaches children to learn how to identify a problem and look for a solution. We also foster the development of resilience. Sometimes, some children tend to give up easily. We teach children that they need to try for alternate solutions to a given problem.

 

The emphasis is on fun, yet we inspire learning about concepts through dialogue and questioning.

 

 

In this course, children will:

 

Learn and consolidate fundamental principles of Python as a coding language

Learn how to write simple Python programs

Understand how programs work and what a code does

Work on practical activities such as building their own applications and building a chatbot

Develop problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience

What is Python?, a world of variables, A Scientific Calculator, Conditional structures, Bissextile Years, Into the Loop, From Flower Petals to Galaxies, Calculating the Golden Ratio, Maths challenges, Dictionary Chess, Behind the World of Variables, Building a clock with Python, Web Scraping and many practical activities per session. Getting to know PyCharm with Turtle. Building a chatbot- variables, inputs and outputs.
