Hyderabad: Codewizards is an online educational academy that teaches school kids how to develop analytical thinking through the medium of coding.
At Codewizards, the main objective is to give a playground for children to develop their analytical thinking by making games with coding platforms, Scratch, Unity, Python and Java.
Although coding is a skill for the future, the primary motivation of Codewizards is in the work of Prof Seymour Papert, a luminary in the field of education theory.
According to Papert’s theory, coding is a very good way to develop and sharpen analytical thinking in kids. The Codewizards teaching method believes in mixing structure with open exploration in line with Papert’s work.
Codewizards has past and present students from the USA, Singapore, UAE, Saudi Arabia, UK, and Europe. Classes are conducted completely online over Zoom in batches of 4 students. Its students have developed lots of interesting projects many of which have been showcased on the Codewizards youtube channel.
