(Python Fundamentals)

bg2.jpg

Course Description:

In "Ladybugs Take Flight 3", students continue learning programming principles and transition from block code (used in Scratch) to Python, a text-based language that is currently the most popular programming language worldwide. Students will interpret/convert Scratch block code into text-based code and continue to utilize variables, if-then statements, and loops.

 

They will create programs that users can manipulate to produce different outcomes and further develop skills that are essential to debug and “repair” common code issues.
