Python and Turtle Graphics
|Allison Hung, Sophia Lin||Check the Google Classroom|
Due to large demand for this class, it will only be available to incoming (2021-2022 school year) students grades 4-6.
Introduction to Python and Turtle Graphics, taught by Allison Hung, is a ten-week introductory crash course in computer science. Python is a contemporary programming language commonly taught to beginning coders, and it implements the idea of turtle graphics to enable coders to draw on a two-dimensional plane. In this course, students with little or no prior knowledge of computer science will be introduced to a variety of topics, including data types, variables, user input, iteration, loops, functions, conditionals, lists, randomness, and events. If you are interested in learning the basic programming concepts and having some fun with Python and turtle graphics, you should check out this course!
This course is open to incoming (2021-22 school year) fourth, fifth, and sixth graders only.
