An intro to Python coding - age 11-14

Coronavirus status: ONLINE SERVICE

Our introduction to Python programming course is a great first step into 'real world' coding for children from the ages of 11 and up. Children will learn to develop real life coding and programming skills in our class.

The next step in programming and coding for schools after Scratch and Kodu: Python

Children will learn fundamental coding and computing concepts while programming their own number guessing game, coding a program to generate silly stories, creating amazing graphics and participating in a ‘hack’ challenge to customise their own computer game. It will challenge their thinking skills, problem solving and creativity. It's the perfect next step beyond block based programming.

What is Python?

Python is a text-based programming language used by professional programmers around the world to run essential business systems. Tech giants such as Google, NASA and YouTube are all keen Python users.

Shift coding and computational thinking skills up to a whole new level!

In ComputerXplorers we aim to prepare children for the future. Now, more than ever, code literacy is recognised as being a key part of everyone’s future, not just those looking to become software engineers. Let’s help them get started on the right path now.
