Learn to Code

with Python

Learn to program in Python® while you design interactive games, calculators, art and animations.

Over 20 projects teach you how to use the most important constructs of the Python® language, including variables, functions, conditional statements, loops, and lists.  Finish the week by creating simple arcade games and then coding your own project entirely in Python!  

Python is easy to understand and widely used and valued. Many businesses such as NASA and Google use it and it often is the first language taught at many top universities. Getting comfortable with Python at an early age is a terrific foundation for future programming success.
