About Kids Computer Courses - Python Programming - Edinburgh Summer Classes

Python Programming for Kids:

Introduction.
For age 10-17. This Python programming course teaches the fundamentals of python programming. Students use what they learn in this course to build simple console-based games. This course is equivalent to a semester-long introductory Python course at the college level. This course is a fun and engaging way for your child to learn python programming, that will serve them well in their future education and employment, and is a great way for them to socialise with other children during the summer holidays.

In this course, students learn the fundamental concepts of programming – concepts that can be applied in the study of any programming language. Students also dive into specific features of the Python programming language.

Below is a brief summary of of each module covered in the course:

Turtle Graphics: Learn the basics of programming by drawing shapes on your screen with Turtle Graphics! Turtle Graphics (or LOGO) is a beginner friendly way to explore programming concepts and bring creativity into programming in a visual way.

Fundamentals: Learn the basics of programming by writing programs that you can interact with using your keyboard!

Control Flow: Teach your program to make decisions based on the information it receives. Learn how to decompose your program into smaller pieces that work together to solve a problem!
