Python for Kids
Learn coding the fun way. This Python for Kids coding course teaches them coding in principles that kids relate to.
For kids, this is not a complete beginner course and it is recommended that you have mastered Scratch Programming. Recommended for kids of 12 years or older.
The course is expertly designed and internationally acclaimed content is used. Groom your child into the exciting world of computer programming. We are using examples that kids understand easily and find relevant and exciting at their level. Concepts that they learn here will become part of their overall intellectual assets and will also complement their Mathematical ability at school. At the end of the course, the student should have the competencies to enable them to proceed into even more relevant topics like games, robotics and IT.
