Pykids has got excellent support from two sources , AWS Educate https://aws.amazon.com/education/awseducate/apply/ and Olive Children foundation http://www.olivechildren.com/
The last class ( 6th session) is a favorite with kids. Visual is appealing and its fun to play with blocks and colors … ipythonblocks
Feedback is coming in from kids and it is uplifting …. “Python coding is one of the best after school class” and they “look forward to it”. Wow!
After a quick review of the previous classes we started on the funnest class “loops”.
Class 2 saw a few new faces which was fun! However we did have technical glitches with Jupyter notebook server on AWS. After a fresh reboot we were off to work …
First a quick recap of Lesson1 , discussing computing terms like binary, debugging and compiler in…
And we are off again … first class today with a bunch of curious kids from 6th, 7th and 8th grades. First day is always a slower start … but the class warms up fast
Following up on my previous post here , I set up another Jupyterhub server with Google OAuth2 .
Pretty straight forward after you set up our credentials on Google Console.
pykids conducted a workshop for children 11 and above at PyBay 2017 on August 12th , 2017.
The workshop introduced the children to programming , how to use Jupyter notebooks and then went over the pykids curriculum step by step.
