Python Bronze

This is an entry level Python Course with no prior coding knowledge needed. This course starts with the basics, covering variables, strings, integers, Booleans and their uses. We cover then if/else statements, loops and the proper use of comparisons and finish with a brief intro into functions in python. Over this 11-week course we really try to focus on real life coding and application of these concepts and not just reading something on a screen (coding makes us better coders). That is why starting from week one, students will write actual code in class and in homework this approach of application makes students internalize syntax, proper coding techniques, and creativity to take them ahead of their peers.
