Teen Coding with Python (3 days)

Course Overview

Learn one of the most in-demand coding languages in the world, used in start-ups, enterprise companies, and academic institutions. This is a top choice for students studying Computer Science for their GCSEs and want to take their skills to the next level in a fun and supportive environment.

Our code-loving instructors develop your programming proficiency by teaching you how to use variables, integers, floats, strings, loops, file I/O’s and data structures, as you work on your own challenge-focused projects. You will leave with the confidence to use the Python programming language independently.

While this is a beginners’ course, we do find that many teens who have already started to learn to program on their own find our “back to basics” approach very helpful as they fill in any gaps in their fundamentals.

What students will learn

  • Project design – theory and practice for designing a simple game or app
  • Fundamentals of coding – key concepts and structure of languages and projects
  • Coding – participants will learn to code in Python, work on mini-projects, building graphical interfaces, games and problem-solving routines.
  • Project Management - Designing, implementing, testing, iterating and debugging their own project
