Coding for Teens
Why Coding for Teenagers Matters
Coding for teenagers is an important skill, especially in today’s computer-centric world. When you’re a teenager, it’s a great time to get started. Once you learn the basics of programming like control flow, variables, and functions in one language, it becomes much easier to learn another language. Languages can differ greatly in their syntax, but they mostly follow the same fundamental ideas.
When you start to learn to code, you become part of a global computer science community. This means there’s a lot of support no matter your skill level and you can meet people and make new friends. Computer science is one of the most popular college majors, so you can get a head start by learning early. Later in life, computer programming can offer a lucrative career.

Learning front-end principles like design and user interface is just as important as learning the back end. It’s important to build aesthetically pleasing products to attract users. In web design, HTML creates the front end structure of the website while CSS provides the specific layout features that allow for all kinds of customization.
Once you've started to master programming skills yourself, you can help others learn how to code through an online community. Teaching programming to others and explaining concepts can greatly strengthen your own skills and understanding.
Master Essential Programming Languages
"How you begin your coding journey will determine the rest of your coding experience. Never try to catch a big fish right away; instead, begin with something simple and easy. Begin your coding adventure with block-based coding and then progress to text-based coding. Create & Learn has a wide range of teen-friendly classes. I would recommend starting with the Accelerated Scratch program i.e. drag-and-drop coding. Build your web can be your next choice if you want to move onto text-based coding and start designing web pages. Coding with Roblox studio and Unity game development are good options if you want to try your hands on game development." -- Apoorva Rastogi
"It is important to often speak about, not only the current digital world, but also the future one. When it comes to encouraging your children to enroll in programming courses, a conversation between a parent and a teenager can be struck by reminiscing over older versions of hardware, such as iPhones, tablets, PC's, TV's, etc.; and predicting how advanced they will look and feel like, some 5, 10, 15 years from today. Easing into a more serious discussion about what it will take to stay competitive in the future job market may seem overwhelming, for both you as well as your youngster, but it is important to face the facts. The reality of it all is that children who yet need to learn how to fully speak and/or write, are already being trained to problem solve, at least digitally. In other words, there are more and more children, who are still in preschool, that already know to program an online game. Create and Learn is the pioneer of tomorrow's technology coaches. Regardless of your child's age or experience, we are here to help them reach their full potential. We have mastered over 25 different curriculums that are guaranteed to prepare your child for the future. All your teen will need is your utmost support." -- Sandra Dizdarevic
"If you're just starting off with coding, Python is a great place to start. It's beginner-friendly, but can still be used as an advanced (or even professional) programmer. Create and Learn's Python For AI series teaches all the important coding concepts, and is a great launch point for any teen with minimal programming background." -- Sarah Rappaport
These virtually taught classes are so engaging, my son really enjoys them and is so excited to show us the coding projects he has completed on all 3 levels of Scratch Ninja. We will definitely be signing him up for more classes and thoroughly recommend Create & Learn to other parents.
