Where Else is the Program Used?
Simply Coding Python Multiplayer Adventures course is used all across the United States and also in Canada, Africa, and in the UK. Our largest followers are our great home school students. In addition to our homeschoolers we also provide these courses for Charter, Private and Independent Schools in California, Utah, Arizona, Iowa, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Michigan, and Tennessee. We’d love to help more schools introduce coding for kids and game design to their great students.
Why Learn to Code through Games?
Don’t our youth spend enough time playing games? We don’t disagree with that statement, however, games provide an excellent medium for a lesson plan. The best coders are those who can customize and make real attempts to code their own ideas. Ideas flow when students are asked to learn to code their own games or customize a specific part of a game. Students are engaged and enjoy the challenge more when these principles are center around a fun little game compared to a database or business-like process. The logic found in coding games is no different than coding for a commercial product.
What’s the Goal?
The goal is to give kids confidence and a real coding experience to help them make more informed life decisions. The course also includes a full lesson on how to upload your games live on the web using github! Their GitHub page will become their online coding portfolio. They’ll be able to share this with anyone they’d like to see their work including potential employers.
