Kids 10+ years old take this practical coding course to learn progrmaming while at the same time applying their skills to practical, exciting projects. Kids work on projects that make use of electronic equipment controlled by Python prgrams residing on a computer called Raspberry Pi (to learn more visit www.Raspberry Pi.org) which uses a powerful UNIX operating system called Raspbian. This program is an advanced STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) course in which kids learn multiple STEM concepts along with programming.
The course teaches concepts about hardware, software, operating system (UNIX), networking, object-oriented programming, electrical circuits and using Python language to buld algorithms that control electrical and electronic components such as LED lights, robots and cameras. Python is one of the most popular and versatile language used these days for many applications including gaming, data analytics, robotics, artifical intelligence and machine learning.
The goal is to learn programming as kids work on the projects. Kids are expected to complete some of the projects listed below as they progress through the course.
Consider this to be an illustrative, not comprehensive list of projects. The typical course progression as well as sample projects are provided below:
Our teachers are highly qualified and include experienced architects, programmers and designers well-acquainted with the latest in technology. They are also available for helping the kids learn difficult concepts in the simplest possible manner.
Our programs keep the kids motivated by including competitive games, rewards for developing skills, creativity and good behavior. Kids receive stars for exceptional performance in several areas including homework submission, class behavior, creativity, leadership and technical skills. Plus they get surprise rewards for showing exceptional qualities in their learning pattern.
