Course Overview

Students will acquire the foundations of computer science to continue their independent or school-based learning in future. This is a beginners’ course, with a “back-to-basics” approach with the goal for each participant to learn the basics of the Python language and will cover a subset of the material offered in our intensive Teen Coding with Python course. Specialist tutors will introduce programming concepts such as variables, integers and loops, and students will leave feeling empowered to code more independently with Python. This course is a subset of our week-long Teen Coding with Python course and runs for 3hrs during 5 consecutive weeks.
