The classes taught at TechUpKids have been designed to expose children to concepts of problem-solving and programming, how instructions flow through a program, understanding the difference between efficient and inefficient code, the concept of testing and debugging programs, and understanding the importance of a user interface. They’ll learn everything a young computer whiz needs to expand their knowledge of coding and programming.
