The IT Kidz Code Clubs are after school computer clubs Online. In this Code Club we will be introducing the children to Python, a widely used, general purpose, text-based programming language. Python is used as the base in many popular computer games.

Python is a versatile language than can be used to make many different types of programs, from word processing to web browsers. Lots of elements that are used in Scratch are also used in Python – they just look different! So it is a good idea to have a knowledge of coding and Scratch before learning to code in Python.
