Overview

Python is a fantastic starting point for learning a text based Coding language. This course is for those who want learn a text based coding language. One of the most popular coding languages to start with, in this course we create games and build programs, through the power of code.

Comprising of 4 Levels, each level takes 6 weeks (or 2 full days) and builds on the skills developed in the previous level. Have your child complete just the one level or go on to become a master this whole course by completing all 4.

For more information about this course and what each level comprises of, please see below.

  • Intro to Python 201
    Starting with the basic concepts of Python coding, this course is perfectly suited for those new to text based coding. This course is designed to tap in to your child’s creativity and problem solving abilities. During the course we will introduce many of the introductory basics of Python through a range of challenges and exploration. This course will have them creating basic programs and text based adventure games in no time.
  • Intro to Python 202
    Building on the skills developed in the previous course, here we continue to develop their knowledge of the Python language by learning how to use Python code to control colours and draw shapes, objects and amazing pictures.
  • Intro to Python 203
    The 3rd part of our Intro to Python course, this level is designed for those who have completed the previous 2 parts of this course. As we build on the skills and knowledge gained so far, we dive further in to Python Game design. Focusing on animating shapes and simple controls the final goal is the creation of their first Python game.
  • Intro to Python 204
    The final of our Intro to Python levels, here they will express what they have learnt through the creation of visual simulations and more complex Python games. A great way in which to wrap up and display what they have learnt throughout the levels.

Audience

Suitable for ages 8+, and kids that have done some Coding before.

Prerequisite

This course requires some previous knowledge of Coding.

What to bring

Lunch (if attending the full day course), Snacks (no nuts please), and a drink.

Equipment

We provide all the equipment need for this course, yet if you have a laptop you would like to send with your child you can send it along.

Outcomes

At the successful conclusion of the 4 levels your child should have a good grasp on the basics of the coding language Python and be able to write some simple Python programs and games. This will give them a solid foundation in which they can then continue to develop their coding skills with the move towards learning a more complex Python programs or try alternative coding languages.
