Course Description

Python 1 - Kids Coding Classes

Illustration

In this beginner course, Skill Samurai provides foundational computer science training using Python. Covering key coding concepts such as basic conditionals, loops, and print statements, we build a series of progressively more rigorous projects that provide a solid foundation in Python programming.
Skill Samurai's research-based, project based learning (PBL) approach to Python 1 keeps the learning fun and engaging, while ensuring a solid foundation in CS.
Upon completion of Python 1 Core, students will be ready to advance to Python 2 Core.

Python 1 Core Curriculum – Ages 8+

The Python 1 Core course normally takes between 4 and 6 months to complete, depending upon course frequency (1:1 versus 1:1 Accelerated), the student’s prior coding experience, and the student’s consistency in completing homework assignments. Our teachers move at the student’s pace, and spend time ensuring that students have a thorough understanding of key concepts.
