Can a kid learn Python?
Yes, kids at grades 5 and above can learn Python. In our classes, 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 from 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 from Scratch. If he/she wants to build games for Minecraft, then try Minecraft coding. If your child loves tinkering and building, then go with Aruidno and Robotics. If they are ready to tackle text-based programming then Python is a great language to learn.
