A day for younger children to start learning Python or build on what they have already learned.
You will start with balloons and boxes to learn - or unlearn and relearn - some fundamental concepts before moving on to programming. You will be able to make a number game, a simple text based adventure game or explore turtle graphics.
Numbers will be kept low and parents are encouraged to contact the tutor via Tomorrow's Achievers to ensure that the day meets their children's needs and stage of learning. Children may also be interested on the day in secret codes.
