Deckzero 4 Kids (DzKids) is a community-oriented initiative to introduce the skills and thoughts of programming and computation to school-age children. The courses are crafted specifically for children’s interest and need for advancing in their numeracy and logics skills. The courses are taught by qualified computational & quantitative professionals through the use of our cutting edge online quantitative research and presenting platform, Deckzero.
In this creatively constructed course, the children will learn to build an automatic diary writer, through which they will develop a natural understanding of Python in a similar way as they learn a natural language like English.
Currently not open for booking.
We use Python as a powerful modelling tool to significantly further children’s understanding of a spectrum of mathematical and scientific topics that form the corner stones of their Y4-Y6 academic curriculum for further studies.
Growth Deck Cohort 1:
Growth Deck Cohort 2:
We teach creative programming curriculum tightly coupled with, and echoing to, the relevant curricula of the mainstream subjects, e.g. maths, science, writing, art & music that students learn day-to-day at school.
We teach in a proper programming language, i.e. Python, in the same professional environment used by millions of real-world software engineers, quantitative professionals and data scientists.
The children will develop, through solving practical problems with code, the skills for computational thinking as well as the ability to operate a real-world programming language at their ease.
The course is fully interactive - live teaching, live content and live coding. All tuition lessons, practice lessons and homework assignments are taken care of by the instructor through the Deckzero platform.
Worry-free tuition. In-house developed web-based coding platform - all devices supported; no installation of software, no environment setup; code here run everywhere. Compatible with Jupyter Notebook/Lab. No mandatory requirement for parents to manage the post-lesson activities such as assignment, marking and final exams; Deckzero provides direct coaching in the optional practical sessions in between the tuition sessions for a small additional fee.
The syllabus and course materials will be open source and available for review and reference for free forever.
