Course Overview



This course is designed to introduce the concepts of coding in a fun and interactive way, and each lesson will be split between learning a new concept and trying out that concept with age-appropriate exercises to stretch and challenge. On this course, we will be looking at how we can store our information in a file external to Python. This is primarily a Key Stage 3 course. However, it would be beneficial for those new to coding in Python Key Stage 4 with no prior exposure to 3GL programming languages. By the end of this course, students will have developed their understanding of the concepts needed to use Python confidently.
