About this Event

Principles 1 - Weekly Coding Course for Ages 13 - 16

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

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

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 5-lesson coding class. Lessons will be conducted every Sunday, 16 Aug - 13 Sep 2020, 4pm-6pm online.
