As computer software continues to play an important part in modern life, an understanding of computer programs is essential.

We are pleased to offer computer programming (coding) lessons for children from the age of 8 upwards.

Delivery Mode

  • Live instruction via Zoom
  • Hands-on learning
  • Fun and engaging activities
  • Each lesson is an hour long

Concepts Covered

The lessons will cover foundational coding concepts such as:

  • receiving input
  • output
  • program flow – sequential execution
  • program flow – conditions (if-then)
  • program flow – repetition or loops (for loops, repeat until, while)
  • co-ordinates (in Scratch)
  • variables
  • operators
  • logical steps in coding

If so desired, we can cover specific portions of your child’s school computer science syllabus.

The learners will build a number of fun projects that will incorporate these concepts in an engaging manner.

For children aged 8 to 13, we will use the Scratch programming language. Scratch is a visual programming language developed by MIT that is designed to teach children coding. It uses blocks of code to build programs.

Older children may also use Scratch, or may choose to learn Python instead. Python is currently one of the IT industry’s most popular programming languages use by companies such as Google and Instagram, for things ranging from web development, automation, data science to Artificial Intelligence.

Skills Learned

Whichever the language used, the children will learn and develop skills such as:

  • Coding (of course 🙂 )
  • Analytical thinking
  • Concentration
  • Persistence
  • Problem-solving
  • Attention to detail.

The children will develop an understanding of how the software that drives modern devices works.

Cost

Lessons are Four Hundred Shillings (KShs. 400/-) per hour.

The full plan is twenty (20) lessons.

Please sign up and let your children spend their time in a fun and educational activity.
