Do you want your child to be ahead of the coding game? Start with Create & Learn's Python for AI class, and have fun mastering this essential computer programming language. Python opens up a whole world of programming possibilities!
Python is a high-level coding language used by companies such as Netflix and Google, and it is also used for web development, game development, building apps, machine learning, and so much more. Studies have shown programming with Python to be one of the simplest and most popular coding languages when learning to code.
This live online class covers not only the basics of Python coding for kids and teens, but also puts a strong focus on the elements of Python that are most relevant to Artificial Intelligence, including data structures and libraries. If your child is interested in exploring more advanced code writing and computer science programming languages, this is the perfect small group class to get started. Enroll today to experience the best of Python coding classes for kids!
In this free special edition Thanksgiving Python coding class, students will take their first dive into coding with Python. We will transition from block coding, which they learned in Scratch, to text-based coding. Students will learn how to animate and draw with Python, and will build their own story project to create a cool animation. Like all of our small group classes, this online Python for kids class is led by an experienced teacher. Join us, learn, and have fun!
In this first part of our Python coding course, we start to learn core concepts of Python syntax, loops, data types, variables, and a lot more. We will build a smooth transition for kids to up-level from block coding such as Scratch, to Python's text-based coding. Students will learn fundamental Python skills as they build creative stories, animations, and games. Basic topics will include using Python syntax, variables, loops, functions, and built-in data structures.
In part 2 of our Python coding course, students will begin using Python for AI and data science. We will explore more advanced programing elements of Python such as dictionaries and files, and learn how to employ Python’s powerful modules to build games, stories, and real-world data projects.
Part 3 covers a good amount of advanced Python coding for kids. Students will be introduced to object-oriented programming, and learn how to use Python classes and objects to complete more complex games and applications.
In this final part of our Python programming course for kids, students will be introduced to more advanced Python concepts, including data structures such as 2D arrays, as well as using new modules and the API for an AI system. Students will also become creators of their own independent Python projects. By the end of the course, they will design and code their own Python program from scratch. To help them prepare, students will practice reading code written by other people and leveraging the Python documentation, to accomplish new things that are not covered by the teacher during class.
BS/Masters in Materials Science and Engineering. Sarah's original passion for the creative sciences stemmed from legos, which she'd use to build huge projects which ate up the entire living room. Today, as an engineer and educator with several years of experience in both disciplines, Sarah can both teach coding and contextualize it. She is passionate about all things STEM, and can't wait to see what you build!

Highly recommend - one of the best coding classes so far! My kid loves it. The Create & Learn team is very helpful in working out options & schedules....& go out of their way to work things out. I give it 5 stars any day!
Very good course. It is the first time for my child to participate in this course. It is very novel and interesting. The teacher is very good. My child likes it very much.
The teacher was very clear in his expression and provided help when the students needed it. The content of this Python class series looks attracting to me. After the class I asked my kid's feeling about the class, who told me it was so much fun. I will consider registering for a camp or another online course.
Can a kid learn Python?
Yes, kids at grades 5 and above can learn Python. In our classes and Python camps, students learn Python via project-based and inquiry-based methods to ensure concepts stick and that they have fun! Kids will quickly pick up the basics. And Python is a wonderful course to level up to after they’ve mastered the basics of coding via Scratch and a couple of other courses such as Arduino for Kids, Mobile Coding for Games & Apps, and Minecraft coding.
Is Python good for beginners?
Python is good for beginners in upper middle school or high school. It is an approachable text-based programming language and is widely used in many applications such as AI and Data Science. It is also often the first text-based coding languages for many people. For younger beginners in elementary schools, we recommend starting with Scratch coding which is more engaging and quicker to master.
What is the right age to learn Python?
Kids as young as age 11 or even younger could start learning Python. However, we often ask parents to consider their kids interests first and foremost. Python is a tool. There are many better coding tools to build what our kids want to do. If your kid is young and wants to build animations and games, then we recommend starting with Scratch. If they want to build games for Minecraft, then try Minecraft coding. If your child loves tinkering and building, then go with Arduino and Robotics. If they are ready to tackle text-based programming then Python for kids is a great language to learn. Get started with our free Python class.
