Introduction to Programming
In this course, students learn how to program in Python, one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Students are introduced to basic programming concepts using a variety of innovative hardware and software lessons.
While no knowledge of programming is required for this course, it is a challenging course. It would be particularly suited to students who have already been exposed to some programming (e.g. students who have already worked with a graphical programming language like Scratch) or keen problem solvers who will be excited by learning a new way of thinking.
