About this event

Principles 5 - Online Weekly Course for Ages 13 - 18

OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING WITH PYGAME

Prerequisites: Principles 4

Our introduction to foundational concepts and techniques in computer programming culminates in this course where programming concepts hitherto learned like loops, functions and lists come to life as students design and build their way through their own platformer video game using the PyGame* game development framework.

Code Campers will be introduced to the Object-Oriented programming (OOP) paradigm - a problem solving approach that allows the programmer to think about the behaviour of his or her program in terms of a collection of objects and how they interact. These skills are then applied to the context of the game programming, where objects are used to abstract the idea of a video game as a collection of characters animated on a display.

The completion of this course will enable the student to solve complex problems beyond the field of game programming - by viewing and reasoning about problems as complex systems of simpler, intertwined objects, students gain a powerful framework for designing and building larger programs and software.

*PyGame is a lightweight albeit powerful Python game engine that allows students to build and examine the internal workings of some of their favourite video games.

Course Schedule

This is an 8-lesson course. Lessons will be conducted online via zoom class on Saturday from 18 Sep - 20 Nov, 10am-12pm. No lesson on 30 Oct and 13 Nov.

School Policies

We can't wait to welcome you on Campus! Before you arrive, here are some of our Campus policies that you need to be aware of.

 

MINIMUM CLASS SIZE

Please note that we require a minimum of 3 Code Campers to start a class. You will be fully refunded if the class minimum is not fulfilled.

MISSED CLASSES AND MAKE-UP CLASSES

SG Code Campus offers structured and outcome-driven courses to equip our Code Campers with the necessary programming proficiencies to progress through our learning roadmap. Full attendance for each course is important to ensure that students are able to progress smoothly in their learning journey.

For a missed lesson, the student will receive a video link to the lesson missed that will expire in two weeks, as well as any necessary materials used in class. Subject to the availability of the instructor, a 15-min consultation can be arranged after the student has covered the video and attempted any necessary exercises to clarify any student doubts. 

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS
We strive to maintain a low instructor-to-student ratio for our courses to maximise the learning experience. Hence, seats are limited and we greatly value each and every seat that we offer. If you cancel your registration for any of our courses for any reason whatsoever, the following refund policy applies:

  • 100% full refund if written notice of any cancellation is received by us at least 14 days before the start date of the course.
  • 100% credit refund if written notice of any cancellation is received by us at least 7 days before the start date of the course. 
  • No refund will be given if written notice of any cancellation is received by us less than 7 days before the start date of the course. 

There will not be any refund or credit offered for physical classes that need to move online. We have continuously honed our conduct of online classes, and are confident that our online classes will still deliver a fruitful learning experience for the kids.

Please note that credit refunds are valid for 12 months from the date of issue, and can be applied to any other SG Code Campus course (subject to availability) within the validity period. If a course of a lower value is selected as a replacement, no refund of the difference in course fees will be given.

WHAT TO BRING

We provide all necessary equipment for students in the classroom, including a Macbook and other hardware devices where applicable. Your child should bring a water bottle and a jacket, as it can get cold in some of our classrooms.

PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY
Please note that photographs and/or videos may be taken during classes or events for educational, training and marketing purposes.
If you do not wish for you or your child to be featured in any educational, training and/or marketing materials, please notify us via email at enquiries@sgcodecampus.com, prior to the start of your child’s course with us.
