Introduction To Python Programming – Specially For Teenagers Aged 10-16 With A Keen Interest to learn more about Technology, Gaming And Coding

This Introduction To Python Programming Is A Great Opportunity For Teenagers To Understand Real-World Coding Concepts And Learn To Create Their Own Games And Applications… Even If They Are Not Computer-Savvy!

What do these sites/apps have in common? Yup, they’re all built with some amount of Python code.

  • Yes, You won’t have to worry about the ‘cool’ factor, these names are bound to pique your kids’ interest in learning Python.

At Your Introduction To Python Programming Class, your kids will learn key Python concepts using real-world examples, and get the opportunity to create tangible on screen results. 

By the end of the course, kids can write simple code and get used to a text-based programming environment used in the real world.

This class will set the foundation for them as they’ll eventually be able to create their own games, programs, animation, problem solving exercises, websites, and even integrate with robotics/AI as they progress to intermediate or advanced classes.

This is the ideal step to get your secondary school kids started on the journey to being a producer of technology, instead of just being a consumer – during the upcoming holiday period.

Here’s what some of our past participants of the Introduction To Python Programming Class have to say after completing their classes

 

Here are some of the “Python Nuggets” we will be covering in the class:

  • Introduction to Python and the Command Line Interface
  • Printing and User Inputs
  • Variables and Numbers
  • User Inputs and Basic String Manipulation
  • Conditions, Loops and Functions
  • Lists and Dictionaries
  • Projects and Games: Pong, Breakout and Catching Falling Object

*Certificates of Participation will be awarded for kids with >75% attendance.

Dear Parents,

At BlockCyber, we believe in enriching and empowering people with good digital skills from a young age. 

Besides the traditional subjects taught in schools, we believe that youths can also pick up the new digital ABCDs – i.e. programming languages. 

Kids at this age have grown up with technology as a key part of their lives.

Scrolling, Swiping, Sharing, Searching, Streaming…

Plus… they’re fast, you can’t keep up.

As parents ourselves, we get it, you might be concerned.

  • “Do they really know what they’re doing?”
  • “Should I be concerned about their usage time?”
  • “Are they actually learning/doing anything useful?”

In this class, they will learn a very useful programming language called Python by working on creative projects like game creation – not by reading books and completing worksheets.

I’m sure, even if they aren’t computer-savvy, they’ll know how to play games.

Now… what if they actually learnt how to build these games themselves?

We get them asking questions like:

  • “How do computers count?” – hint: different from humans
  • “What do computers like?” – nothing to do with emotions
  • “Why does this do A and not B?” and “How do I make it do B instead?”

And get them to apply their learnings to real-world applications!

  • E.g. what actually happens when they scroll on TikTok?

Python powers plenty of commercial applications, is regularly seen as one of the best programming languages, and is recognized as the fastest programming language of recent years.

Kids are fast, and can quickly pick up the basics and learn how to use this language for data science, machine learning, animation, game and cloud development, and so much more…

We help them to visualise abstract concepts in a fun format that lets them apply mathematics to real-life problems.

This is the great age to start learning how to code!

These are some raving testimonials of the class written by teenagers who have thoroughly enjoyed themselves in our classes.

In fact, many of them have reached out to find out more about advanced classes, which we offer as well.

Now for some serious stuff… Looking towards the future

Python is considered the language of choice for data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence – all areas that are extremely in demand in our current economy. 

These areas also have immense value in the future of our economy and where technology has been heading, so there is sustainable value in this skill.

Python’s popularity will only continue to grow.

Many experts believe that the language has staying power due to its power and simplicity.

Don’t forget, enormous amounts of Python code within large projects will need development and maintenance for years to come.

Just think of your own work environment, your friends, family and colleagues…

Many people around you have considered, or probably taken up “Professional Python Certifications” for their career progression.

You might not know this, but Python for kids and youths is exploding in popularity.

Many parents and educators now view it as the Go-To beginner-friendly youth coding language that imparts immediately transferable 21st century skills.

The best part?

Coding actually teaches kids and youths to experiment, learn to fail, and gives them the confidence to be creative – rarely something you can learn from standard curriculum.

Get your Teenager 21st-Century ready with our Introduction To Python Programming Class this December Holiday!
