Progressive Curriculum week by week  
 

Python is a great programming language for programmers of all experience levels. It is well-known and widely used in the software industry for its English-like syntax and elegant simplicity. Developers use Python to design websites, analyze data, and build applications.

 

WHY LEARN PYTHON?
 

Python is a general-purpose, versatile and popular programming language. It's great as a first language because it is concise and easy to read, and it is also a good language to have in any programmer's stack as it can be used for everything from web development to software development and scientific applications.

 

The game design course uses the native Python interpreter to explore the full range of possibilities in using Python on a computer.

 

Computer science embraces problem solving, hardware, algorithms, and perspectives that help people utilize computers to address real-world problems in contemporary life.

Camps courses is designed in progressive Curriculum, Student can moves from Basis level to advance level week by week.

Minimum 6 students.

A video conference link will be sent to the participants.

Frequently asked questions

Is programming experience required for this course?


No programming experience is required for this introductory course, however a basic understanding of algebra, including variables, graph coordinates, and functions, is strongly recommended.

For Intermediate or advance courses, Yes. A good understanding of the various concepts listed under Course Details is required, as this class focuses more on advanced programming topics. They can attend this advanced course.




What you mean by Progressive curriculum week by week?


STEM4kids follows progressive camps between the weeks, which are an in-depth pair of courses that build upon student knowledge week after week. The curriculum is more flexible and is influenced by student individual skills and strengths. Which allows us to individualize lessons, customize the learning experience and offer plenty of personalized, one-on-one time for each student. If you have a particular goal or project idea, instructors will work with you and guide you to help you achieve it.
