Programming helps kids to learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively - essential skills in 21st Century

About this Event

What is Python and What it can do?

Writing our first “Hello, World!” program - Data Types (like Strings, Booleans, Floats, and integers), Print Functions, and learning about Variables and Concatenation of Strings

We help young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

The Program is organized around a framework that we call the “Four P’s of Creative Learning”: Projects, Passion, Peers, and Play.

It describes why and how parents and educators should provide children with opportunities to work on projects, based on their passions, in collaboration with peers, in a playful spirit.

The ultimate goal: To help children develop as creative thinkers, so that they can create new opportunities for themselves and shape the world of tomorrow

Artificial Intelligence

Around the world, governments and companies are proclaiming that we are entering the “era of AI”. Using advances in artificial intelligence, companies are now producing devices that understand speech, cameras that recognize faces, cars that drive by themselves, and computers that identify patterns in huge databases of information.

In the era of AI, the pace of change will continue to accelerate. Today’s children will face a never-ending stream of unknown, uncertain, and unpredictable situations. The key to success and happiness will be the ability to think and act creatively.

Info

Students will learn via Zoom. The instructor will have access to view their screens and help them with their code. Throughout the lesson, the instructor will explain how to do ONE specific thing at a time, for example, we will learn how to concatenate—merging & combining strings and then I will give several real examples- like how to print out a sentence from two separate variables “merged” together—for the students.

Then, they will try on their own to do that ONE thing—for example, creating their own sentences with two variables in the same sentence.

There will be a challenge combining everything learned in the course. Students will communicate with the instructor and each other via Zoom.

We will take turns sharing our screens and our code. The class is approximately 1 hour.
