"Fire Tech breaks down the learning into clear goals and it is definitely easier to learn this with a tutor than by yourself. It was awesome turning random collections of data into clear data packages"Rob, Teen Programmer

Gain a deeper understanding of Python, through creating complex projects in the language
Solve real problems
Work on deep projects that can be used to solve real life problems
Broaden your knowledge
By working on real projects you'll gain a much broader and deeper understanding of Python than it is possible to get in a normal school setting
So you’ve spent some time learning to program in Python and now want to take a much deeper dive into how to use Python to solve specific programming challenges? That’s where our new Teen Coding with Python – Build Amazing Projects course comes in. The course is structured so that you’ll get to spend a full day on each of the topics getting to grips with some of the common use cases for the Python programming language.
Over the course of a week, you’ll spend a day learning how to build websites using the Flask web framework that is used by Netflix, Uber and Lyft to power parts of their infrastructure. A day learning how to build desktop apps using a professional-grade GUI library. Then you’ll move on to look at how Python is used in Data Science and Machine Learning, before spending a further day building video games using the Pyglet library. Finally, you’ll get a chance to hack on a project of your own devising based on one of the topics you’ve covered earlier in the week.
Whether you dream of building the next million-pound start-up, working at Facebook or Google, or becoming a Data Scientist, this course will give you a valuable skill to build a rewarding career in whatever field you choose.
This is an online learning course taught live by an expert tutor who is DBS-checked. You will join a small group of other young learners, working together and making lots of progress in fun and interactive sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.
The course will assume all students have at least a familiarity with Object-Oriented Programming and will give you the opportunity to develop this more fully by solving real world problems. If you’re interested in studying Computer Science to A Level and beyond or are just fascinated by programming this course will help you extend your knowledge further.
