Course Overview

Available as part of the Fire Tech Unlimited membership, this fantastic self-guided project will help you build your Python skills, then create your own action-packed Fingers of Fury game, with scoreboards and leaderboards included.

Python is 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.

You’ll develop your programming proficiency by learning 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 finish with the confidence to use the Python programming language independently, with an awesome game that you can continue to expand and improve.

This is an independent learning course, with a focus on project work. Students will work independently at their own pace through learning materials and assignments, and should they need it they will be able to join a live Help Clinic to get answers to questions they may have.

For details of how this course covers the coding components of GCSE Computing, download the mapping grid here. Students will also cover topics such as Object Oriented Programming and Creating GUIs which they often won’t encounter until they study Computer Science at A Level or beyond.

Once you have a Membership plan, you can access the project HERE.
