Grades 5th To 7th
Bring your Python code to life with interactive buttons, windows, images, and more! Our all new Python projects for fall 2020 focus on Graphical User Interfaces, popularly referred to as GUI (pronounced goo-ee) via the Tkinter module. Through this virtual course learn how to create your own characters with bitmap editors, design the game interface with your choice of shapes, colors, and fonts, then code your objects to interact and respond to their environment. Did your alien just collide with a spider? That can’t be good! Or can it? Your code, your rules. Explore Python for the first time or use your previous Python experience to truly bring your games to the next level!
Previous experience coding with Scratch or similar highly recommended. Students must have a computer in order to code (not a tablet). It is recommended but not required that students use one computer to code and another device (tablet, computer) to participate in the Zoom class at the same time. Python class requires a free download of Python 3 found at: https://www.python.org/downloads/.
