The changing landscape of the American workforce is in the news almost every week. One statistic states that jobs in the technology field are growing up to three times faster than other career fields. With that in mind, more and more public and private high schools are beginning to offer courses in programming, website design, and networking.
If your homeschooler has an interest in technology, there is no reason she or he should be left behind. The KidCoder and TeenCoder computer science curriculum from Homeschool Programming, Inc. will teach 4th – 12th grade students how to write their own computer programs, games, and Android applications! They are able to learn Java, C#, and Visual Basic in a fun, hands-on, age-appropriate format. Projects come to life on their computer. No teacher expertise required!
And this month at LetsHomeschoolHighschool.com we are partnering with Homeschool Programming, Inc. to give two lucky commenters the one-semester TeenCoder or KidCoder programming course of their choice (plus supporting materials), an $85-90 value. Students can learn HTML, Java, C#, Visual Basic, Windows programming, game programming, Android app creation, and website design!
The KidCoder Series of Visual Basic courses for 4th-8th grade is light-hearted and easy-to-learn, with plenty of detailed examples and guidance to keep your student on the right track. This series is geared for younger students or those just trying out the field of computer programming to see if they like it.
The TeenCoder C# Series and TeenCoder Java Series for 9th-12th grade are for older students looking for a more in-depth study of computer programming.
