Courses

For kids who can’t yet read but would like to learn the basics of coding, there are the Mini Coders courses (Prague, online). They’ll learn basic programming concepts using a picture programming language. They can program different kinds of robots, experience their first successes and gain new energy for further studies.

For more mature children who can already read and write, usually from the age of 6-7, there is a wider range of possibilities for development. The introduction to the world of IT and programming at Scratch is offered in the course The Little Programmer which you can take either at the Prague office or online.

By the age of 7-8, a child can already start studying a simple programming language. Programming with Minecraft (Bratislava, Praha, Olomouc, online) combines Scratch programming with the popular world of Minecraft.

At the age of 10, children can already profile themselves independently thanks to a wide range of different development opportunities. Future game developers can focus on Roblox (online) courses to learn the basics using the language Lua. Future designers will appreciate the course Become a graphic designer (Prague).

Kids of 11-12 can already enroll in the courses 3D modeling or Web application development or Python (Prague, online).

Lego classes are great for developing fine motor skills. In a playful way, they will learn the basic principles of building structures and physics.

Kiddum – offers courses for 4 to 18-year-olds in Prague. In addition to the semester courses, you can register your children for a variety of workshops and, during the holidays, for a suburban camp. Lego courses include Lego Education and Lego Technic for older children. They can also learn the basics of robotics, mechanics and mathematics.

Application

Try the app Code Card(EN) – it’s suitable for children from 4 years of age, but with a little support and a bit of practice younger children can manage it too.

Toys

Bring home Ozobots(EN) or other programmable toys (CZ,EN) and let them see the combination of work and fun in real life. Or simply try Ozobots Online (PL) first. And if you are craving for truly legendary entertainment, you can talk to astronauts (EN).
