Python Coding Classes For Kids Starter Class

For Ages 8 - 11

course_description

To write good code, kids need to be able think computationally and understand the expression of the code.  It requires both sets of skills.

 

We believe that the  best way to teach these skills is by coding. Each class presents a real world coding challenge that students must answer using a virtual robot. While the first challenges are quite simple – such as having a robot complete a maze - the problems become more difficult as they progress. This requires increasing development of advanced logic, creativity and the application of more advanced coding techniques such as variables, operators, loops, etc. 

 

Python is an increasingly popular language for programmers as it is widely used in data analysis and machine learning. It is a great first language for those new to coding, as it use uses intuitive commands such as ‘if’, ‘for’, ‘while’ that are recognizable by younger students.  learners. And all major tech companies and leading universities look for Python programming abilities. 

 

The full Python For Kids course covers 168 concepts in 20 Units. This starter course will cover the first 5-8 units of the longer course.

 

Python For Kids leads to Python Coding For Kids Intermediate where we introduce coding 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.
