About the Coding Kids' Holiday Code Camps

Beginners Python #1 (Years 5-9)

Python is a great programming language to help beginners to understand programming concepts. It is widely regarded as the best programming language for beginners because it is easy to learn, easy to read and write, extremely flexible, and helps you progress onto harder languages. Beginners Python #1 is the first in a series of Python Holiday Code Camps.

You can use Python to write quick scripts, backend web development and build websites using Django, a popular Python web framework. Python was used to build: YouTube, Instagram and Spotify. It is also a useful programming language which helps those studying or researching at Universities to conduct their research. It is widely used in scientific, technical and academic fields, i.e. Artificial Intelligence. 

If you have never coded before and you want to learn your first programming language, start with Python since it is versatile, the syntax is very simple, and it is easy to get started. Try Python for free with Code Academy

Beginners Python #2 (Years 5-9)

The Beginners Python 2 Holiday Code Camp continues on from Beginners Python #1. We quickly revise the concepts from Beginners Python #1 and build on these with new concepts, commands and computer games.

Beginners Python #1 is a pre-requisite to Beginners Python #2.

Scratch for beginners (Years 2-6)

Scratch is a great introduction to computer programming concepts. It is a drag and drop coding environment which suits children from the age of 6. Scratch is perfect for students with zero programming experience. Students explore the Scratch interface and familiarise themselves with capabilities of this program. They build their own computer games, animations and multimedia art, whilst in the process they discover computer science principles.
