Python in a nutshell
From software, to apps and websites, Python’s extensive library provides access to a multitude of system functionalities. You can pretty much code anything with it!
Similar to the English language, the syntax of this text-based programming language is readable and easy to understand. With its gentle learning curve, you can execute powerful functions with minimal code.
Check out the sweet stuff you can do
“N hfs htij” is actually an encrypted message which says “I can code”!
Learn about cryptography and encrypt secret messages. Crack the code using Caesar Cipher: a sequence that replaces alphabets with other letters in a fixed pattern.
So, to the unsuspecting eye, it just looks like a bunch of jumbled up letters when in actual fact, it could be your plan for world domination. No one will ever know…
Learn conditions & logic to code a scissors, paper, stone showdown with your computer.
Apply your knowledge of modules and coordinates to unleash turtle drawing mayhem! You’ll be able to create infinite geometrical shapes and code your turtle to become your very own tiny Picasso.
Power Up Your Python Skills
Put your programming skills to the test by writing code that verifies information. Just like how programs check the validity of your NRIC or credit card number out of millions of numbers, you’ll learn programming skills to validate important personal data. Now that’s what we call real programming with real world applications!
With the solid programming concepts you’ll learn from Python, you can also easily branch out into other programming languages in the future. So let your journey to programming awesomeness begin!
No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
