Python is an interpreted, high-level and general-purpose programming language. Python’s design philosophy emphasizes code readability with its notable use of significant whitespace. Its language constructs and object-oriented approach aim to help programmers write clear, logical code for small and large-scale projects.
Outside of our program, Python is often used to build websites and software, automate tasks, and conduct data analysis. A non-profit organization, the Python Software Foundation, manages and directs resources for Python and CPython development.
Panda Programmer teaches Python for Kids to allow students to experience programming in a new setting. The transition from a visual-based language in Scratch, to a text-based language may be jarring for many. Utilizing projects students designed and created in scratch, we recreate them in Python — smoothing the transition to text-editors for programming.
Classes are designed specifically behind a primary ideology — students are able to advance at their own pace. This allows any of our classes to host students of all experience levels, from Scratch Jr. to Web Development. All of our teachers in classes around Montgomery County, Maryland are equipped to teach students of all levels.
Python is primarily taught utilizing Repl.it — an online IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Our lessons are detailed for students to work through, with the guidance of their teachers when they need assistance.
