COURSE

Python for Kids

For Ages 8 - 10

Course Description

This course teaches Python, a programming language that has become the standard in education and  is extensively used in the commercial world. 

The focus is on programming in Python, as well as, on Computational Thinking.  Computational Thinking enables kids to work out exactly what to tell the computer to do, while Python instructs the computer how to do it.

To build these skills, kids solve real-world coding problems using a virtual robot. We call these problems "Challenges" - tasks that the virtual robot must complete. The initial Challenges are quite simple, but increase in difficult requiring development of more advanced skills.

The curriculum is “student led”, meaning students work at their own pace supported by an instructor. Worksheets with additional exercises and a summary of each unit are made available at the completion of each unit.

Upon completion of Python For Kids, students are eligible to progress to Python Coding For Kids Intermediate where they begin to code using native Python.

What Our Parents Say

The curriculum is rigorous

The curriculum is rigorous, my kids love the coaches. The coaches are not only knowledgeable, they are also patient with the students. They teach what schools don't teach! Useful Share

Best coding program for kids in USA

UCode has the best coding program for kids in USA. They also very flexible with schedules and price. Teachers are knowledgeable and very kind to kids, they have lots of patients on all the manner. About 5 years more advanced in age groups ,than a private school computer program class.If America visited Mars, than your kid need as a minimum, : to learn computer skills !

Loves UCode!

My son loves UCode! I did not think he would have the patience for programming but he seems to really enjoy it.


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.
