Advantages to Python Classes & Learning
Python is a programming language that is particularly good for kids wanting to learn how to code. Of all the various languages out there, it’s the one which we really encourage children to learn due to the minimal and easy to read style.
If your child is starting to express an interest in tech and programming, Python programming for kids could be a great way to turn an interest in coding into a passion.
What is Python for Kids?
Computer programming is a skill that helps to encourage creativity, logical reasoning, and problem solving.
Kids have the chance to create something unique from scratch, writing code to make their computer run a program… which may or not be successful, meaning problem solving comes to the fore in a fun and challenging format.
The Python programming language is fantastic for this.
Whilst “Python for kids” isn’t actually a programming language in itself (Python is Python!), it is a kid-friendly and simple to start language.
It is used to power the technology behind some of the world’s most well-known brands with web development, data science, machine learning, plus mobile and desktop applications running on it.
Our tutors can teach it from the ground up. If you scroll to the bottom of this page you can find an overview of the kids’ Python classes we offer.
Python Programming is Perfect for Beginners
Unlike the majority of programming languages, Python’s syntax is concise and easily readable by humans. It mirrors the human language far better than any other programming language which makes it an ideal language for beginners. It just makes sense.
Writing code in Python is similar to writing commands in plain English. As beginners, kids will quickly pick up the basics and learn how to use this language for game development and animation.
With Python, you wouldn’t need to dive right into the deep end of object-oriented programming just to accomplish simple programs. You can start right at the basics and work up from there to avoid any daunting challenges.
Python is Kid-Friendly
Python is great for kids, especially as a first language. New programmers can go right from the very first simple “Hello world” programs to creating games with the Pygame toolkit
The Demand for Python is Continually Growing
Python is also 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.
