Python is an easy-to-learn programming language that has some really useful features for a beginning programmer. The code is quite easy to read when compared to other programming languages. Python has some features that greatly augment the learning process and allow you to put together simple animations for creating your own games. One is the turtle module, inspired by Turtle graphics (used by the Logo programming language back in the 1960s) and designed for educational use.
We are happy to offer a FREE ONLINE course that teach your kids (9+)
to Python code. It’s a free website lessons devoted to basic Python
concepts: variables, loops, functions, and more. Each week we add
one lesson with specific key topic, exercises and challenges that assist
children to cover the distance from a beginner to an expert. Especially
we focus on Python Turtle module which is a nice way to teach kids
programming. Using this graphics module, it’s possible to build math
and science projects, quizzes, simulate physics phenomena create games
and make animation. We hope you enjoy this course and appreciate
feedback. Have fun.
