Coding is a 21st century skill which will turn your child into a tech creator from a tech consumer.
In pursuit of our mission of providing holistic growth to all children, iVinci Kids is offering ‘Coding Classes for Children’ in collaboration with Tynker the #1 Coding Program From Silicon Valley.
Tynker is a complete learning system that teaches children to code. Children learn how to code through the activities they already love: games and stories. Students learn the fundamentals of programming and design through Tynker’s intuitive visual programming language without the frustrations of traditional syntax.
With Tynker, students learn fundamental programming concepts and the principles of computational thinking. Once proficient, they seamlessly transition to Python coding within the Tynker learning system.
Designed for children (age 7-13) who are either completely new to programming / coding or have some basic knowledge, our courses develop your child’s coding and engineering skills. The curriculum is organized into systematic courses where students move at their own pace through scaffolded lessons to learn concepts and apply them creatively.
An introduction to programming for beginners in upper elementary grades. Introduce your class to programming using a fun scenario-based approach where they build two complete games. Side Scroller Survival introduces them to basics of motion and animation. In BeatBot Battle, they program a robot to make it dance. On completing this lesson plan students will be able to build simple games, animations and a variety of simple projects.
Introduction to Python for intermediate or advanced coders in upper middle or high school. In this advanced lesson plan, students will be introduced to Python as they complete engaging lessons, solve challenging puzzles, and build their own games in Python. This course is ideal for students who have already completed at least one Tynker course and are comfortable with the basics of programming logic and computational thinking. This course will help them transition to Python and adapt to the additional challenges of text-based syntax.
Students who successfully complete this lesson plan will demonstrate a strong mastery of Python syntax, as well as the ability to creatively program games and other projects and debug their own code. Students will also be able to come up with an idea for a game and take it through the entire design and implementation process, creating custom versions of many of their favorite games in Python.
Topics Covered: Python syntax, sequencing, repetition, conditional logic, nested loops, automation, pattern recognition, simple motion, keyboard and mouse events, pen drawing, operators, expressions, variables, Turtle graphics, using arrays and objects to store structured data.
Tynker is a coding platform that easily and successfully teaches students how to code through the activities they already love: games and stories. Students learn the fundamentals of programming and design through Tynker’s intuitive visual programming language without the frustrations of traditional syntax.
Among other things, kids can use Tynker to build games, tell stories, and create projects using what they learn in school. In this way, students reinforce learning and be creative at the same time.
Filled with challenges, badges and unfolding storylines, kids are engaged in hands-on creation as they build knowledge of programming basics.
Using visual code blocks, Tynker guides kids through programming concepts – such as loops, conditional logic, sequencing and algorithmic thinking.
Python: Python is a programming language that is widely used in web development, game development, and scientific research. Python is known for being highly readable and uncluttered, using whitespace indentation instead of curly braces or keywords. Because the Python language is meant to be relatively syntactically simple, Python developers use the invented adjective “pythonic” to describe code that is highly readable and written in a way that shows fluency with Python idioms.
