Project Description

This course is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language.

Learn to code in Python and develop fun games. Python is particularly suitable for this age group because it is concise and easy to read and has multiple applications in the real world (web development, app development and other scientific uses such as data science).

This camp is a great introduction to both fundamental programming concepts and the Python programming language. By the end, the students will be comfortable programming in Python and taking their newly acquired programming skills home.

  • Learn Python syntax (structure)
  • Use loops and conditionals (IF/THEN/ELSE)
  • Understand variables (number, Boolean, string)
  • Create and use functions
  • Use all of the above to make a super cool game
  • Coding – Learn to code in a fun, familiar environment
  • Logic – Increased complexity with Loops, Conditions and Variables
  • Test and Debug – using logic and systematic reasoning
  • Create – Make super awesome games with Python

  • Discover – Open up a world of possibilities by tinkering your code

Participants are provided with all the equipment they will need for this particular course. However, they are expected to bring:

  • Lunch – All students are expected to bring packed lunch for the day (nut-free and not to be shared)

  • Water – In a re-fillable water bottle. No glass or fizzy drinks please.
  • Ready to Learn – we expect all children to come in with a great learning attitude
