Into the big leagues! Python is a text-based (typing involved) programming language.
Everything covered in Scratch will be revisited in Python but in text form. Students will learn to build upon their existing coding foundation to understand and integrate the new concepts introduced in this workshop.
Instead of building your own projects like in Scratch, the Beginner Python workshop introduces students to the world of text-based programming through the use of interactive and visually engaging games. By facilitating the acquisition of new knowledge in a game setting that is familiar to children, text-based programming can be learned in a fun and stimulating way!
Target age range: 9+ Prerequisites: Advanced Scratch or equivalent experience Continuation: Intermediate Python or Java
Concepts Covered: - Python Syntax - Transposing block-based concepts to text-based: - Variables, Lists, Loops, Coordinate system, If-statements, Inequalities, etc. - Objects (properties, methods) - Code Sequence - Comments - Strings, Integers, Booleans, and other data types - And more!

Teacher Mariane was so patient with Aries! It was a little tough for him as he’s only 5 years old, but he was still able to make different sprite characters move! It was pretty neat watching him learn new computer skills! Thank you for teaching Aries teacher Mariane! It taught us parents some new tricks too! Wonderful program!
