Description

Principles 1 - Holiday Coding Course for Ages 13 - 18


PYTHON FUNDAMENTALS THROUGH MINECRAFT

Prerequisites:

  • No prior coding experience necessary

  • Prospective students must have either completed the local PSLEs or graduated from Grade 6 in an international school before enrolling

Please note that the focus of this course is to teach fundamental Python programming concepts through Minecraft as an example, and not to use Python to enhance gameplay in Minecraft.


This course introduces computer programming as the craft of problem-solving through writing sets of instructions for a computer to run – what are known as programs. Code Campers are taught how to read and write these programs in the massively popular and widely adopted Python programming language. Lessons primarily focus on having students familiarise themselves with the most primitive types of instructions that can be understood by every computer and understand how these can be composed to build up virtually any computer program:

  • creating and accessing variables for storing and manipulating data

  • making simple decisions with conditionals like the if statement

  • repeating instructions through loops like the while statement

We facilitate student learning through a fun and visual environment: concepts are elucidated through puzzle-solving in Minecraft – one of the most iconic, beloved and dare we say, educational (so declares the New York Times) video games of our time.

After this course, students will walk away the ability to read, analyse and construct simple programs. They will also gain an appreciation for how programming is applied to solve problems in fields as diverse as mobile, web development, artificial intelligence, robotics, financial engineering and bioinformatics.



Course Schedule

This is a 4-lesson coding camp, 2.5hrs each day. Lessons will be conducted Monday to Thursday, 15 Oct - 18 Oct 2018, 3pm - 530pm, at our Marine Parade Campus (#03-04 Parkway Centre).


*Do note that we require a minimum of 2 Code Campers to start a class. You will be fully refunded if the class minimum is not fulfilled.
