Online Coding Class for Kids from Homeschool Code Academy ~ a TOS review

 

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC Regulations.

Morning! Are you in the market for a homeschool computer programing course for your children? If so, I suggest that you check into the Python for Beginners: Learn Coding at Home program from Homeschool Code Academy. With the prevalence and advancement of computers over the last several years, its never been more important to learn about computer programming.

Homecschool Code Academy was created by Matt Bohn, a software engineer to help middles school through high schoolers learn the skill of coding. Previous knowledge of coding is not necessary to complete the program using the Phython programming lesson series. All you need is an open attitude, a computer, and a willingness to learn this new, and exciting skill.

 


The Python programming lesson series is a self-paced, pre-recorded video course. Video lessons are short and sweet, just 3-10 minutes in length and there are no previous coding skills required to begin this course. Simply jump right in and start learning.

 

Your student is not just watching lessons though, they actually get to dig in and program on the Thonny.com site with the Python code. Thonny.com is a free program that can be downloaded for free for Mac or PC platforms. Mr. Bohn has video’s to help you through this process as well. Also, if your student needs to slow down the learning process for complete comprehension of what is being learned, they can! Simple go as fast or slow as needed to understand the material and concepts.

 

Your Python for Beginners subscription includes 10-months of access and includes 158 online videos, challenges, and teacher solutions. Throughout this course your student will have the chance to create fun, 2D graphics as well as a few arcade style games within the Python program. For a final project, the student is to create a Space Game.

For this review, McKenzie, my 5th grader was the one to take the course. While coding is not at the top of her wish list of things to learn, she did give it a shot. She liked that she could make the computer speak just by typing in a code. Since computers are a huge part of our daily lives, I hope to get at least one of my younger girls into coding. This would have been perfect for my oldest when she was in high school! She actually is a software engineer and does coding on a daily basis for her job. I also, plan to expose my son, Micah, to coding as soon as he is a bit older. He enjoys computer time and gaming, so I think a dedicated programming program such as the Python for Beginners: Learn Coding at Home from Homeschool Code Academy will be a great fit for him to explore!
 


Bottom line, I think you should check out this online coding class for your children! While it was not a good fit for our family just yet it may be what your student needs to spark their interest in computers, gaming, and/or coding!
