Python Classes for Kids

We teach kids how to code, develop programs, create games and websites, make algorithms using one of the most popular programming languages.
#from 10 years
Our teaching strategies are adapted to student needs
The course program consists of 4 modules that are developed for kids of different age and coding background
Recommended for children who want to switch from Scratch or Minecraft to Python. This module is specifically designed to prepare students for complex text-based Python programming. It suits 9-year old or older children.
This module is suitable for children who have completed Scratch course and are ready to code. To sign up for this module children must be able to read well, understand theoretical materials and think logically. The course is aimed at children of 10 years old and older. Kids under the age of 13 must take a test before signing up for the course.
PyGame is an additional course to Python programming. It includes improving object-oriented programming skills, as well as FPS, rendering and other skills that are used in game-making process. It is suitable for children from 10 years old.
For this module children should have a good knowledge of Python. Flask is a framework for Python that helps with the creation of full-fledged websites. It suits 12-year-olds and older kids.
*The child can either take all of the courses or just choose one or some of them depending on his/her programming knowledge and level.
PYTHON
Fundamentals of programming with the Python language.

7
Lists
The student will learn what lists are, how to find the maximum and minimum values in a list of items, and how to sort lists according to various criteria.
13
Sets
The student will learn how to create a set, how to convert other data types into a set, how to find out if sets are equal, what are the properties of sets, how to find out if a set belongs to a set and the power of a set.
3
Conditions
Boolean data type. Comparison operators. Construct if-elif-else. Logical operators. The student will learn how to make simple, nested, and complex conditional constructions.
4
While loop
The while loop. An infinite loop. Break and continue loop control operators. The student will learn how to use loop control operators and variable-counters, and make a loop with a condition inside.
5
Strings
Actions with strings, indexes, and slices. Finding, counting, and replacing characters. Letters, managing letter cases and numbers in strings.
8
Additional modules
Working with text files on your computer, features of working with date and time, third-party modules. The open function. The pickle module. The datetime and time module. Terminal and installation of custom modules via the pip package manager. The pillow module.
9
Functions
The student will learn how to create functions, use arguments and parameters, and how to return a result from a function.
10
Designing a graphical user interface using the tkinter library
Label, Button, Frame, LabelFrame, Entry, Listbox, Toplevel, Scale widgets. Widget configuration. Basics of interface design, window creation, ready-made widgets (button, input field and other elements), connection of widgets with program functionality.
11
Dictionaries
The student will learn how to create empty dictionaries, dictionaries with "key-value" pairs, get values by key, add a new pair to an existing dictionary, modify values, delete the last pair, delete pairs by their keys, clear the dictionary completely, and go through the keys and values.
14
Designing a graphical user interface using the tkinter library
Creating a canvas and drawing geometric shapes. Changing and removing objects, calling functions, creating labels. Handling intersections and undoing delayed triggering. Drawing lines and changing coordinates with coords. The study of the tkinter module will continue with the creation of a new widget - Canvas that allows one to draw shapes and handle their intersections.
15
Designing a graphical user interface using the tkinter library
The module will explore the concept of "modularity", which allows you to create one large project from several smaller modules. Radiobutton, Checkbutton and Spinbox widgets.
16
Two-Dimensional Arrays
The student will study two-dimensional arrays, find ways to apply matrices, and solve a number of problems with them.
17
Object-oriented programming
The student will use the example of game classes (Warrior, Mage, etc.) to understand what classes are, why to use them and what benefits they provide.
18
Additional modules
Additional sections are given depending on the student's preferences. The requests library and BeautifulSoup4. Web parsing basics. Telebot or discord library. Creating a bot for Telegram or Discord and running the bot on Heroku. The basics of Git. Versions, creating a repository on Github, commands init, add, commit, remote, push and others.
