Summer Online Coding Classes for Kids Age 7-16
GIve your kids the unfair advantage
Give your kids that unfair advantage
Learning to code opens your child to the amazing world of technology. This time not as a consumer but as a creator. Have you noticed that those who create technology control the world? Take a look at Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Twitter etc., all are mobile apps that have turned into billion dollar companies and their creators, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Jack Dorsey all learnt how to code before they turned 15.

Here are some of the most common questions, along with the complete answers from our support experts.
Coding, or programming, is simply the learning of computer language. In order to control computers (or robots or drones), we need to give instructions in a language that they understand – that language is programming language, and the act using that language is coding. We live in an increasingly digital world, and to understand how to code is to understand how this digital world works. Just as we learn science to understand how our nature works, our children must learn coding to understand how technology around us works.
We teach several programming language to your child, depending on his/her age and experience. For beginner we use visual programming languages like Scratch, and Kodular, and will eventually proceed to learn text-based programming language like Python. Either way, our lessons are designed to be fun and accessible to everyone.
Learning to code helps to develop many important skills that can help a child succeed in school and life beyond. Some of these skills are problem solving skills, critical & logical thinking, creativity, and computational thinking skills. Children also uses mathematics and scientific skills to solve programming problems. In addition to that, we encourage collaboration in our classes, thus helping a child develop his confidence and social skills.
Our innovative curriculum guarantees that most of our students will be able to develop a simple software after going through our summer program. What kind of software depends on your child’s interest and passions. He/she could build games, animations, mobile apps, and any kind of software.
For Online classes our students’ age ranges from 7 to 16 years old. We start from age 7 because we believe that at this age the child is able to use a computer independently
Manufacturing, Banking, Medical, Transportation, Telecomunication, IT… in fact any industry that uses technology (which is almost all) will benefits from the knowledge of Coding. You do not need to be a computer scientist or programmer to learn coding, just as you do not need to be a scientist to learn science.
Robotics is actually an application of Coding. In order to control a robot, one would need to program it. Learning coding may enable your child to program or control a robot, computer, and even drone.
This depends on the age of the child and if the child has prior knowledge on computer programming. Call to talk with our counselor to find out which course is most appropriate for your child.
Because technology and software controls everything we do in this digital age, demand for those who will create this technology has skyrocketed and this has made coding the number one in-demand skill for everyone in the 21st century.
Coding teaches creativity, logical reasoning, critical thinking and most importantly helps us to solve problems by creating software that makes life easier for people.
Our programmes include intermediate and advanced courses for returning students. Our curriculum roadmap shows you the path your child can take to continue on their coding and innovation journey.
