Code4Teens: Discord Python Botcamp is a platform designed by cadets from 42 Kuala Lumpur, Southeast Asia’s first all-inclusive peer-to-peer learning platform, that embraces 3 important vertical that we believe are important in education:
– Peer-to-Peer Learning
– Creative Coding
– Learning How To Learn
Coding has become a fundamental skill in this digital age. The usage of digital technologies are now prevalent in almost every sector and a shortage of talents with this skill is seen across the whole world.
The ability to code does not only allow the individual to build and create new innovative solutions but also develop critical cognitive skills such as creative thinking, problem solving and leadership.
This is why we at 42 Kuala Lumpur have designed a 9-day ALL VIRTUAL program called Code4Teens: Discord Python Botcamp for teenagers aged 13 – 17 years old. In this program, selected students will be equipped on the tools to develop a self-learning mindset through our peer-to-peer learning environment and the knowledge to create their own Discord bot!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Registration DOES NOT mean automatic entry into the program. Once you have completed this registration form, a selection process will commence. You will receive a separate email regarding your entry status. The entry fee for this program is RM250 per individual. A certificate of completion will be provided upon graduation of the program. Full SCHOLARSHIP is provided to Penang-based public school students that are accepted into the program thanks to Penang Science Cluster & Digital Penang.
Students will get an introduction to Python programming language and Discord.py API. Python is one of the most popular programming languages that is used to develop applications such as Instagram, Google, Spotify, Netflix and more.
Discord is the most popular community engagement platform in the world and students will be able to create their own automated bot that is able to understand natural language commands. Think of this like creating your own Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa!
The program starts on 5th March 2022 – 13th March 2022 with each day requiring about 4 hours of commitment.
Students would need laptops/desktops with stable Internet connection.
