Computers need code the way that fish need water. Our global economy is dependent
on computers, and every day new jobs are created that require knowledge of coding.
But there’s a serious shortage of competent coders, and hundreds of thousands of jobs
are unfilled in the U.S. alone because there aren’t enough people who understand how
to program computers.
At SasTec Academy, we believe that every child should learn how to code, and we think
it’s never too soon to begin. Learning to code is like learning a second language: the
earlier a person starts, the quicker that second language becomes second nature. We
want all students in America to be fluent in the language of computers before high
We also believe that coding is so important to the prosperity of our country that we are
willing to provide these classes completely FREE of charge for any student enrolled in
our tutoring program.
Our highly qualified and well-trained tutors offer these FREE coding classes:
- Algorithms for Kids
- Fundamentals of Python Programming
We start by teaching our students how to think in terms of algorithms, which is the
computer scientist’s way of arranging activities into an orderly series of steps. Learning
how to think algorithmically is essential for someone learning to code because the
language of computers is just a long—sometimes a really long—series of orderly steps.
After students have mastered algorithms, we move on to the actual programming
languages. By the time students have finished all of our coding classes, they’re ready to
design websites, apps, and games. There is no limit to the opportunities available to
students who take advantage of our FREE coding classes.
