Coding for kids

Is Coding for kids really that important?

In a word, “Yes!”

  • Coding teaches students to think ahead and strategize a solution. These abilities are helpful across many different challenges and endeavors.
  • Coding teaches kids not to give up. Programmers know that rarely does a program run as expected the first time. But by trying over and over, the programmer is usually able to debug the program and get the results he or she desires.
  • Coding is challenging and collaborative. Panda Programmer encourages students to work together on programs from time to time. Students find that anyone can (including themselves!) can come up with the winning approach to a stubborn programming issue.
  • Coding is good for the brain. We have all heard the phrase “Use it or lose it.” Coding falls into the category of activities that requires students to use their brains to succeed.
  • Coding is fun! Coding is a great pursuit that combines all of the advantages mentioned here in a manner that is enjoyable and fun for students young and old. “Fun” keeps students coming back to coding!

Computer Programming for Kids

Hello,
It is my understanding that MCPS does not teach computer programming to kids. At least not to elementary school aged kids. Is this true? Is Panda Programmer offering something that MCPS does not?  And do you offer anything for summer camp coding?

Kids Program robots in the Germantown area

Hello,
I am wondering if there is a class for kids in the Germantown area?  I’m looking for a class that teaches kids how to program robots. My child is in elementary school, and she went to a summer camp this year, but the programming class there didn’t touch robots.

Summer camp computer programming for kids Gaithersburg

Hi, I am looking for a summer camp with computer programming for kids in Gaithersburg. My children are in 3rd and 5th grades (they are 9 years old and 11 years old). Do you offer any kind of summer camp experience? Is it full-day or half-day? And since my husband and I work, is there before-care and after-care offered? Thanks a lot! Sarah in Gaithersburg
