About Pykids

Pykids is a voluntary effort run my Meenal Pant - a Mom and a Pythonista. This org is now 2 years old and delivers/has delivered *free* Python tutorials to young and curious minds. The Pykids resources are being used by a much larger audience across USA.

The concept behind Pykids is straightforward — make using/writing Python fun and easy! This has been made possible by Jupyter notebooks and AWS.

Pykids is a browser based learning tool that requires no set up and installation Just fire a browser and get started.

The curriculum has been developed and iteratively improved after hands on session with 5th graders. The curriculum is available at Pykids Curriculum

The current curriculum contains 5 classes covering basic Python concepts.

The class will end with kids creating a chessboard using ipythonblocks!
