    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. Participants will be guided 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. 

    Outcomes:

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

    • Describe and illustrate key concepts like data types variables, loops
    • and if statements
    • Apply loops and if statements to create programs that draw shapes as well as programs that do mathematical computations (times tables and factorisation)
    • Use native python string functions to manipulate text and perform capitalisation, concatenation and various other string formatting operations
    • Use the random function to create dice games and guessing games

    This workshop is for teachers who already have a grasp of some basic programming concepts: variables, iteration (loops) and conditionals (if-else statements).

    It is targeted at teachers of Years 7-10.


    In this workshop, attendees will learn how to teach computational problem solving using Python as a tool.

    Outcomes:

    Participants will tackle 3 computational thinking problems. By the end of the workshop, they should be able to:

    • Describe computational problems in terms of clearly defined inputs and outputs (abstraction).
    • Describe the solution to it a sequence of simple steps (decomposition).
    • Define those steps in the form of a flow chart.
    • Write the solutions using Python code.
    • Evaluate the solutions based on the criteria of simplicity, readability and efficiency.

    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 for teachers who already have a solid grasp of basic programming concepts: variables, iteration (loops) and conditionals (if-else statements).

    It is targeted at teachers of Years 7-10.


    In this workshop, attendees will learn how to import websites, tweets and published books into Python and subsequently analyse the data using a variety of tools.

    Outcomes:

    Participants will tackle 3 computational thinking problems. By the end of the workshop, they should be able to:

    • Install web scraping and Python text analysis modules like Scrapy and TextBlob.
    • Write Python functions and organise them into a module.
    • Analyse tweets, books and blogs for sentiment polarity (the general mood of the text).
    • Analyse tweets books and blogs for objectivity (the precise unambiguous use of language).
    • Deduce general themes of any piece of text using TextBlob functions.
