Short, colorful apps and games you & your child can program right away, for ages 5 to 95! PC, Mac and Linux!

Packed with fun examples, colorful graphics, and easy-to-follow plain English instruction, Teach Your Kids to Code is the course parents and kids, teachers and students can enjoy together, as they build one of the top job skills of the 21st century! Python is a great first language for beginners, but it's powerful enough to be used in companies from Google to IBM.

I designed this programming course to be easily understood by absolute beginners, with example code I used with my own pre-schoolers all the way through the apps I teach to college freshmen.

Quick, two- to eight-minute lessons will get you coding your own apps from scratch in minutes. Over 100 video lectures and 7.5 hours of content will give you the practice you need to master the powerful new skill of coding.

What You Will Learn

  • Code your own apps and games in Python 3.6 for Mac, PC, or Linux, from pre-K to college level
  • Draw colorful spirals and shapes with Turtle graphics in Python
  • Create fun, playable games like War, Yahtzee, and Rock-Paper-Scissors
  • Build interactive apps that respond to user input and mouse clicks
  • Master variables, loops and functions to prepare for more advanced programming courses (and a brighter future)!
