Python Core provides a deeper look at game development using Python. Covering key computer programming concepts such as Complex Conditionals, Loops, Functions, Inheritance, and Recursion, we build a series of progressively more rigorous projects that build students’ understanding of computer science.
Skill Samurai's research-based, project based learning (PBL) approach to Python 2 keeps the learning fun and engaging, while ensuring a solid foundation in CS.
Upon successful completion of Python 2 Core, CodaKid students will be ready to graduate to Python 3 Core.
Python 2 Core Curriculum – Ages 8+
The Python 2 Core course normally takes between 4 and 6 months to complete, depending upon course frequency, the student’s prior programming experience, and student’s dedication to our homework assignments. Our student-centered teaching approach allows us to progress at the student’s pace and our homework assignments are designed to promote independent mastery of the concepts covered. The projects in Python 2 Core are longer and more complex, and will produce interesting games and apps that can be played with friends and family.
