Coding for Kids


A basic, fundamental course to get started with coding and software development. No prior knowledge or experience is required.

In this course, you will develop two or more desktop games that you can share with friends, teachers, and family.

This is a really fun way to learn essential coding skills. Each child will develop a simple game that can be played on his/her computer or phone.

No knowledge about coding required, but the child should be familiar with using the computer, and searching and browsing the internet.

Suggested age range 8-14.

English Program: The course will be conducted in English, but assistants will be available to translate into Thai if you don’t understand the instructor. Learning an interesting subject in English is a fun and very effective way to improve English comprehension.

Skills you will learn

  1. Be able to develop basic, standalone interactive Python applications that can accept, process, and output graphical elements.
  2. Apply basic math, logic, literacy, and computational skills towards solving problems using the computer.
  3. Achieve a basic understanding of the Python programming language (coding syntax, control logic, data structures, etc) and how to apply them in developing various applications.
Your instructor: Darrius
