About Python

Python is one of the most popular computer languages in the world. It is well known for its versatility being used in many areas such as web development, big data, networking and education. It is an easy-to-learn language and is widely used in coding education. ripplecreate teaches Python to students to build a strong computational thinking foundation and uses it as a platform to elevate a students’ learning to more complex concepts.

The lessons will focus on building a foundation for programming and computational thinking. Special emphasis will be placed on understanding the logic of how code works, and on understanding what each of line of code is doing before typing it out. Each class will include a mix of content discussion and programming practice.

The course will culminate in a chatbot that they will build using what they have learnt so far, integrated with their very own creativity to make it interesting for the end user.

About Thunkable

Thunkable is a professional web service that allows users to develop working apps that can be published as both IOS and Android apps. However, it lands itself as a very good learning tool as it has simplified the app creation process. Through our lessons, students can look forward to creating their own working apps. Students will pick up useful skills by integrating coding, problem solving and creative thinking in app creation process.
