Learning “how to code” can be taken as the buzz phrase for computational – the core concept behind developing code. When a child learns computational thinking, it means he/she has learned to take a problem, understand it and develop solutions for it. Coding is a fun way to teach children structural thinking, develop their math and writing skills and explore their creativity.
At Minds Ahead, we offer Scratch, Python and App Development. There are three levels of the program. Children will work on all three applications at each level.
Perfect for younger children, Scratch teaches creative thinking, systematic reasoning and collaboration by enabling children to program their own stories, games and animations with block-based coding. Scratch is an amazing way for children to start developing important skills such as computational thinking and algorithmic logic.
Easy to use, powerful, and versatile, Python is a great choice for children wanting to learn how to code. Its high readability makes it a great first programming language allowing children to think like programmers without wasting their time with confusing syntax.
Children who learn Python also improve and develop multiple facets of their academic syllabus including math, writing, and creativity.
With MIT App Inventor, children progress from tech users to tech creators. They learn to design and build their own fully functional app.
