Event description

Description


Whether your child is new to programming or an experienced developer, it's easy to learn and use Python.



Come attend the Young Coders' Workshop and you will learn Python programming language.




Kids are growing up in a very different world than that of their parents. Cell phones, computers, YouTube, Netflix, and Facebook are embedded in their daily lives. Even toys are digital, and many are programmable, such as Legos and the new-generation LeapFrogs.

It is one thing to know how to use these technologies. It’s another, however, to understand the logic behind them. When learning to program, kids understand and tinker with the digital world they inhabit. Coding draws back the seeming “magic” of technology so they can truly understand the logic and science that controls this technology – a discovery that is all the more magical.

Our reliance on technology will only increase. The students of today must be able to not only passively consume this technology, but also understand and control it, becoming an active part of this huge digital shift.





What you will learn:




i) The basics of Python programming language/P>

ii) Key concepts in coding, that are useful when you start learning other languages


iii) The biggie- how much fun coding is! You can be a coding ninja!!!
