Coding is used to make cool computer games that people of all ages enjoy. But how exactly do people turn typed words into pictures that you can move and control? This session looks at Turtle, an easy-to-use Python library where you can learn to code shapes and graphics!


Coding is used to make cool computer games that people of all ages enjoy. But how exactly do people turn typed words into pictures that you can move and control? This session looks at Turtle, an easy-to-use Python library where you can learn to code shapes and graphics! We'll also be looking at loops and finally code a turtle disco!

This workshop is aimed at people who have no knowledge of Turtle and are beginners or have not experienced Python. The recommended minimum age is 9, as the participants need to be able to type quickly and there is a little bit of maths involved (to do with angles).
