INTRO TO CODING
Recommended age: 12+ Years Old
This class is a great introduction to both fundamental programming concepts and the Python language for Vottronauts with no prior programming experience.
Programming can be intimidating for newcomers, so we’ve created this course to make sure our Vottronauts have a great learning experience.
In this class we will be using Python. Python is a general-purpose, versatile and popular programming language. It’s great as a first language because it is concise and easy to read, and it is also a language we will be using for our more advanced robotics classes.
See a quick summary of Python from the python.org website:
“Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together.”
Sounds complicated, right? Don’t worry because we will make it really simple to understand.
