Helpful Error Messages

We have over 1,000 custom error messages to help students debug their own code, rather than relying solely on the instructor.

Our Approach to Computer Science

Pythonroom's curriculum is designed to teach students problem-solving and algorithmic thinking. Our lessons are unique, easy to understand, and dynamically ordered to enhance retention. Students learn by mastering basic instructions to solve simple problems, and then work their way into more challenging concepts and larger programs. We have refined this curriculum over many years, so we are confident that Pythonroom is the most effective way to introduce computer science to young students.

Why teach computer science?

Every student should learn structured thinking.

Computer science is a valuable skill for every endeavor. Structured thinking teaches students how to logically break down problems and gain greater insight into the processes they experience every day. We have condensed years of experience teaching Python into a free online course that introduces computer science through problem solving and graphics.

Educators love Pythonroom

Testimonials

Pythonroom is pioneered by forward-thinking educators and organizations around the world. Here is what some of them are saying.

"For a first-time teacher of Python, this was an invaluable tool in the classroom. Pythonroom tracks your kids' progress, while offering them a differentiated approach to learning with relevant real-world parallels by topic. Students can learn at their own pace, but with challenges along the way. Also, the curriculum supports the teacher by freeing up time to take students aside and work with them individually and in small groups. After seeing the results, our programming teachers and IT leadership decided it best to implement the program throughout the district. Thanks for making a great, effective product!"
