Students will learn to code in Python and create fun games and useful applications. Python is particularly suitable for this age group because it is concise, easy to read and has multiple applications in the real world (web development, app development and other scientific uses such as data science). It is the most popular programming language in the world and is widely used by all the leading tech companies such as Google, Amazon and Facebook.
The Python Level 1 autumn term live weekly class is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language.
Python Coding 2 is suitable for students who have already completed our Python Coding 1 course. It is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language.
This class is a great introduction to both fundamental programming concepts and the Python programming language. 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
