In this Beginner Python coding class, students will learn by way of playing a game called Code Combat. The game is played by writing scripts in the Python language that control what happens to the characters. Each week, with hand-on guidance from our staff and peer collaboration, students will work through the many levels of this game, taking on new Python competencies each week.
