We have started using Kid-Coder Windows Programming with a 10yo and 13yo. The manuals appear to be written so that the kids can understand and follow them independently. Each chapter is broken down into several shorter lessons. I have very little knowledge of computer programming, and wanted something they could do on their own. So far, this product fits the bill.

We selected this for our DD because we believe some computer programming knowledge is necessary today. She has never had any interest, so we were afraid this would be one of those "have to" subjects for her. This curriculum really opened her eyes to how computers operated and what you can do with programming. We are only 7 lessons in, and it is already one of her favorite subjects. We started with KidCoder, but expect her to ask for the TeenCoder courses when this one is complete.

My son has loved using this program. He'll spend hours at a time working on it. It's challenging enough to require him to use some deep thinking, but not so difficult as to discourage him. He says he's definitely learning a lot, and that makes us both happy!

Homeschool-Programming has been extremely helpful to our son. It has helped him learn a subject I would have struggleld to teach. It breaks things down step by step in a way even the most intimidated person can understand. Definetly a must for anyone interested in a career in computers.

We are a very low tech family and I thought this would help my kids learn more about computers and maybe even become interested in a career in tech. This was very difficult for us to begin with. We couldn't figure out how to use it, we may have actually been missing some software (software you are supposed to download or have, not something that was not included by the designer). I forced my 11 and 9 year old to spend 30 minutes a day anyway, learning the different computer terms. They kept saying they didn't understand it and didn't enjoy ...(more)

We bought Kid Coder for my 12 year old as recommended by a Co-op friend. My son has loved it. He is so proud of the programs he's writing and has already finished his first semester in about 2 months. It has given him both great skills and great success! I highly recommend it!

We purchased Teen Coder/Game programming for our 13 year old son. We are a tech family and have found this program very user friendly for the most part. My son is enjoying the program and we would certainly buy the next level. My husband, who is a software developer, believes it is a great way to start formally learning the basics.

We've really enjoyed Homeschool Programming for my son. He LOVED KidCoder VB and KidCoder Game Programming. As a computer programmer myself, I have found the curriculum fairly solid and been able to also show a bit of my day to my son. However, the greatest part of all is when I see how excited my son gets and would say, "Mom, look at what I did! I figured it out!"

My son is also on the Autism spectrum with a current diagnosis of PDD-NOS. He also does not have a high IQ as result of some of his learning disabilities. I include this becaus...(more)

My daughter was very interested in computer programming and I couldn't teach her about it. Through the Buyer's Co-op, we heard about this program (made for and by homeschoolers!) that she could use without me knowing anything about the subject. She loves it and is almost through with the first course, even working during her vacation "for fun"! We recommended it to another family, who purchased it already, and we are both anxiously awaiting the next course's release (Game Programming).

As the mother of a very bright 10 year old son I was looking for for some programming tools that would interest and challenge him while providing real building blocks to more advanced coding interests. I also had the need for the tools to be able to be self learned for the most part.

I am happy to report that the tools that we have purchased through Homeschool Programming have succeeded in these goals.

My son has become very interested in learning and using the tools, I often find him at the computer reading the next chapter and workin...(more)
