YTCA: What is it
Our kids are growing surrounded by hundreds of electronic devices that they interact with in an everyday base. We, Young Tunisian Coders Academy team, are well aware of this fact and as a consequence, have put our efforts together in order to make kids take advantage of that surrounding technology, starting with his computer, and make it not only a source of consumption but also a source of self- development. We aim to introduce youngsters to basic programming skills at an early age. We want to show them that coding can be fun and it can broaden the mind and open new possibilities to the kid.
YTCA: The Vision
To raise generations who will lead the technological revolution in Tunisia and pave the way onto the Information Age.
YTCA: The Way
We chose to do it differently. Unlike the boring traditional code lines, we are offering interactive trainings that are able to attract a kid attention and bring him to embrace a new spirit of competitiveness and challenge that YTCA will instore via regional and national competitions.
With scratch you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.
S4A is a Scratch modification that allows for simple programming of the Arduino open source hardware platform. It provides new blocks for managing sensors and actuators connected to Arduino and allows you to bring your latest ideas and innovations to life .
INTRODUCING App Inventor
App Inventor is an innovative beginner’s introduction to programming and app creation that transforms the complex language of text-based coding into visual, drag-and-drop building blocks which are inspired by the scratch graphical programming language. The simple interface grants most students the ability to create a basic, fully functional app within an hour or less and allows them to unlock the frontiers of their imagination using a simple web browser and their Android phone .
