You'll be amazed at the rush kids (and grownups) get when they get their first program working. It's a great feeling of accomplishment and one that triggers them to push forward again and again while developing their confidence and grit. There are so many benefits of learning to code and new ones are still being found. That's why we offer a fun, self-paced program to help kids learn to program.
We believe learning works best when it Flows without constraints. One of the biggest constraints is the requirement for kids to learn at the same time and pace as other kids. To address this, our programming and robotics classes are structured so they're self-paced. Every kid gets their own equipment and learns the materials and completes the exercises at their own pace.
Why Python and Java?
The right tools in the right order. Just like you learn to use a screwdriver before a drill, Python offers a simpler entry into programming while being a real programming language used by professions. It offers kids an opportunity to learn programming without having to wonder about advanced notations and concepts that get in the way with more complex languages like Java.
Then why Java?
There are primarily two types of programming languages: Loosely Typed and Strongly Typed. Python and Java are respective examples of these types of programming languages. For kids that are ready to broaden their understanding and get into concepts like Object Oriented Programming, languages like Java make these easier.
How do I get started?
Use the link at the bottom to schedule an assessment where you can bring your child in to Funtastik Labs. A coach will meet with your child to do a quick assessment and advise you on whether Python or Java programming would be appropriate and place them at the right level. You can also learn about how the course is structured and how we keep you updated about your child's progress.
