Coding for kids is an innovative online platform that teaches kids to learn coding and thereby improving the 21st century skills. It is also an excellent way to teach mathematical and science concepts in a different way and have problem-solving skills, logic and patience. The main goal of this application is to create an engaging system that provides exciting activities so children can understand the programming concepts thoroughly so that they can perform them on their own. It nourishes young aspiring minds to get a clear vision of their ideas.
The platform comprises a project-based curriculum grounded in the maker mindset: creating new physical devices and tinkering with existing ones. It gives students a context for learning to code, and dramatically increases engagement over traditional computer science instructional methods which focus on solving math problems or manipulating on-screen elements.
Central to the application is the exclusive use of text-based programming, rather than drag-and-drop icons. Students are guided step-by-step in the process of learning the python language, with the support of web-based software tools that help catch errors and debug programs. This allows a natural process of learning through making mistakes and fixing them.
