    Python is an interpreted text based general purpose programming language and is also the only professional programming language that was designed with beginners in mind; it is intuitive and easy to use.

    This workshop is a hands on introduction to Python in the classroom, in it we will step through a learning sequence that covers the fundamental programming concepts such as variables, loops and if statements and then apply this knowledge to solve 3 computational thinking problems.

    The workshop is targeted at teachers of Years 7-10


    By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:

    • Describe and illustrate key concepts like data types variables, loops and if statements
    • Use native python string functions to perform capitalisation, concatenation and various other string formatting operations
    • Write a program that authenticates a correct user name and password
    • Write a search algorithm which finds a number between 1 and 100 with 6 yes / no questions
    • Analyse and solve 3 problems from famous school age coding competitions ( Advent of Code and Bebras Challenge)
