Python Silver

A more in depth Jump into the use of python. Introducing students to more difficult and real-life uses of python like creating classes, functions, arrays, and animation in python. This again is a very hands-on approach to teaching coding with the focus being actually coding (coding makes us better coders). With these more advanced students we give them more freedom in their coding while still challenging them and introducing new difficult concepts.
