Course

Python Coding For Kids (Intermediate)

For Ages 9 - 11

Course Description

Working with faculty at Cornell University, UCode developed a curriculum to teach two related disciplines: 1) Computational Thinking and 2) Coding.

Kids need to be able to do both to write good code.

 

This course Python Coding For Kids (2) continues to build coding skills in Python by transitioning students to coding in native Python using a IDE. It also continues developing advanced Computational Thinking skills through solving coding Challenges that are increasingly complex and require higher levels of logic.

 

Core concepts that were introduced in the previous Python For Kids Course are now formalized. These include Functions, Parameters, Lists, Variables, Conditional Statements, Loops, Strings and Operators. Concepts are introduced using worksheets and supported by exercises. These are the same concepts that are taught in our college level Python Fundamentals Course, but here we are introducing them in a age appropriate level. When students meet them again in later course work, they will have a basic understanding and so can progress more quickly.

 

Upon completion of Python Coding For Kids (2), students are eligible to progress to HTML/CSS where they will begin to understand the core technologies of web development in HTML/CSS.

Membership Information

Do classes for new students start every week?

Courses are student led and self-paced. You simply join a class that is convenient for you and our instructors will pick it up from there. During your first class you will have a instructor who works directly with you one on one to introduce the curriculum and get you started. When you are rolling along, you will join the standard class.

What If my student has previous coding experience?

A Academic Director will meet you to understand your learning goals, your previous coding experience and which course you are interested in pursuing. They will “level” you into the correct starting point in the curriculum you are pursuing.


Are Membership refundable if I cancel?

Memberships are non-refundable. If you fail to cancel prior to the subscription renewal date, we will not refund you. No exceptions.

What If I miss a class?

You may make up a class in the same billing cycle. For example, if you miss Tuesday’s class you may take the same class on Thursday as long as it is prior to your monthly subscription renewal date.

Are your courses certified? Can I earn college credit?

Our courses are certified by SigmaCoding.org a non-profit educational institution that serves to certify coding programs for primary school, middle school and high school courses.

What if I enroll two children? Is there a discount for siblings?

No. Unfortunately at this low price, the economics do not allow us to offer a sibling discount.

Can I Cancel my Membership?

You may Cancel at anytime by logging onto online.ucode.com and cancelling from the Settings section. Subscriptions must be cancelled by the end of the business day prior to the subscription renewal date.

How long does it take to finish a course?

Generally, one academic semester to finish a course, although it does depend on the age of the student and the course.
