one of the coding projects we'll be building

Are you interested in moving on from Scratch to learn a more powerful programming language ? One that is currently the world's fastest growing programming language, and at the same time is known for its accessibility and ease-of-use ?

Over the 5 weeks of this course we'll provide students with an introduction to Python, covering foundation computing concepts that are the basis of every coders toolbox.

We'll start each session with around 15 minutes of instruction and some starter code - for the rest of the session students will modify the starter code to make it their own. Extension activities will be provided each session for those that are ready for them. But students are encouraged to go at their own pace - there will be no tests! Our emphasis is more towards steady individual progress and self-expression.

Topics covered :

  1. Sequencing
  2. Variables
  3. Looping
  4. Conditionals
  5. Functions

Included in the price:

  • 5 x 60 mins/week - 15 mins instruction, 45 mins coding

You'll need to bring :

  • ( optional ) your own laptop - we can provide Raspberry Pis for students to use

No prior knowledge of Python is required - if you've coded with Scratch or any other language before, that would be helpful, but is not required.
