Why This Class
Has your student expressed interest in becoming a computer programmer, software engineer, video game designer, or IT problem-solver? If so, you want to help them explore this path and get a head-start if it's the right one for them. This course helps by equipping your student with foundational coding skills in Python, a popular programming language.
Students in this self-paced course create games, stories, applications, and other useful programs using Python. They practice navigating the semantics of the language and experiment with coding concepts including input and output, strings, if/else statements, while-loops, for-loops, and functions. This course also prepares students to pass an exam towards earning Microsoft's Technology Associate Certification.
By completing this course, students gain familiarity with the coding process and develop skills that will help them pursue programming as a profession or hobby. They’re excited by the possibilities for using Python to bring their technological ideas to life.
