Learn how to code in the language that built Dropbox, Google and Instagram - Python Programming!
If you’re going to learn how to code, why not pick up one of the most versatile and powerful programming languages on the planet? This popular text-based programming language is easy to understand and learn, making it perfect for kids. Come find out how easy it is to level up your coding skills!
KEEPIN’ IT SHORT & SNAPPY
For kids ages 10-13
Code like a real programmer with a text-based language!
Crack cryptographic puzzles with code
Learn universal computer science concepts
Recommended to have taken Back to Basics: From Zeroes to Python Heroes first
Please note: With 22 Aug being a public holiday, class will be extended by a week.
"My kids had a blast & came home armed with knowledge & information which they were excited to share with us." - Joanne, Parent
Python in a nutshell
From software, to apps and websites, Python’s extensive library provides access to a multitude of system functionalities. You can pretty much code anything with it!
Similar to the English language, the syntax of this text-based programming language is readable and easy to understand. With its gentle learning curve, you can execute powerful functions with minimal code.
Check out the sweet stuff you can do
“N hfs htij” is actually an encrypted message which says “I can code”!
Learn about cryptography and encrypt secret messages. Crack the code using Caesar Cipher: a sequence that replaces alphabets with other letters in a fixed pattern.
So, to the unsuspecting eye, it just looks like a bunch of jumbled up letters when in actual fact, it could be your plan for world domination. No one will ever know...
Learn conditions & logic to code a scissors, paper, stone showdown with your computer.
Apply your knowledge of modules and coordinates to unleash turtle drawing mayhem! You’ll be able to create infinite geometrical shapes and code your turtle to become your very own tiny Picasso.
Power Up Your Python Skills
Put your programming skills to the test by writing code that verifies information. Just like how programs check the validity of your NRIC or credit card number out of millions of numbers, you’ll learn programming skills to validate important personal data. Now that’s what we call real programming with real world applications!
With the solid programming concepts you’ll learn from Python, you can also easily branch out into other programming languages in the future. So let your journey to programming awesomeness begin!
OH! THE STUFF YOU'LL LEARN!
Understand core computer science concepts like Functions
Variables: How to debug your code
Encode a message with a secret key
Draw infinite geometrical shapes using loops
Run code that verifies information
Share and Present!
LIFE SKILLS LEARNT
No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.
Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact.
Parents love us
"...and for the first time he is not running to play other people's creations but his own... I am absolutely delighted in the 'mindset' change in my son's attitude." - Emma, Parent
"Thank you for a wonderful and exciting enrichment program that is so much more than academics.. it's fun but for me as a mum, an important future skill set for my son." - Rachel, Parent

Frequently Asked Questions
1. My child is new to computers and programming. Will he / she be able to follow?
Puzzle Out with Python Programming welcomes all students but it’ll be helpful to have a basic background in programming. While this course may be taken as a starting course, we recommend kids to start with Back to Basics: From Zeroes to Python Heroes to get a ground up understanding of how computers work.
2. My child is younger than 10. Can he / she join?
Puzzle Out with Python Programming was designed for kids 10-16 year olds but is used by people of all ages. Sadly, having a 9 year old in the same class as a 16 year old may not result in the best learning environment for the younger student. If your child is very keen, we can organise separate classes if there is a minimum of 4 participants. Please contact us directly to enquire.
3. I've enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?
We'll provide all materials. You might wish to bring a drink, some light snacks and a jacket just in case your child gets cold or hungry. We'll give the class breaks in between so your child can take that time to sip on some juice and munch on those yummy crackers.
This camp will proceed with a minimum of 4 tickets sold. We will inform you in advance if the camp is cancelled. Refunds will be made accordingly. Unless otherwise notified, the camp will go ahead.
We will be filming and taking photographs of the children in our workshop. By registering a child's attendance at this camp, parents/guardians grant Saturday Kids a perpetual licence to use the student's work, photographs or videos of the student, and other materials for purposes such as publicising or promoting our workshops/events and the students’ accomplishments on Saturday Kids' website or on our partners' websites.
