Intermediate to advanced students will transition from block coding, which they learned in Scratch, to the text-based industry standard language of Python. Compared to many other programming languages, Python has a simpler syntax, similar to the English language, which helps explain its growing popularity. Python is versatile language used in Data Science, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Automation, Graphic Design, and Gaming. Python has wide ranging applications from medical research to even NASA. No wonder is the fastest growing programming language!
Students take their first dive into Python coding, a feature-packed programming language that is fast becoming the computer language of choice. Your children will learn how to animate and draw with Python turtle graphics, create intricate fractal patterns, build their own story projects, and create logic based games. Your children will learn to use Python syntax, animation techniques, conditionals, loops, and variables. Students are also introduced to a range of data structures such as strings, arrays, and lists. By the end of this course, students should have the ability to independently write simple programs and games in Python.
