This course is designed to introduce the concepts of coding in a fun and interactive way. Each lesson will be split between learning a new concept and trying out that concept with age-appropriate exercises to stretch and challenge. 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 deepen their understanding of Python and the basic concepts needed to use the programme whilst increasing confidence. The last lesson will also provide the opportunity to plan a text-based adventure game.
