About the course

This course is designed for students who have completed CodingMind Basic but with little or no experience of the Python language. This a great bridging course to transfer the knowledge of programming from Scratch to industry level programming language, Python. In the 8-week course, students will learn the core programming concepts and techniques used in the vast majority of programming languages. We will introduce the basic syntax and grammer of Python language to break down the key concepts linked to the coding skills. Each concept will be demonstrated by real code examples. Students will practice their hands-on Python coding skills via REPL (an interactive programming shell).

Each class consists of 2 sessions: Lecture and Coding:

  • Lecture Session: this session focuses on the Python language knowledge and coding concepts
  • Coding Session: this session is for students to practice the knowledge they learned in the lecture session.

The ultimate goal of this course is to build up the interest of computer science and establish a solid fundation of programming using Python and prepare them for the future success on programming and computer science. Our students will be able to apply what they have learned to other related academic fields, such as math and science. They will feel comfortable and ease to learn any other programming language in the future. At the end of this course, students will receive the CodingMind certificate.
