Python Game Development

Ages 10 to 13

course_description

Python Game Development is the first in a series of Python courses that use text based coding. In this course students build a video games using Python. The first lesson introduces students to Repl.it, a integrated development environment for Python. Subsequent lessons introduce a core Python programming concept using worksheets and simple exercises.

 

Concepts introduced include basic game design, sprites, lists, custom events, functions, operators, variables, objects, loops, conditional statements, functions and sprite groups. Students then apply these Python concepts to develop a fully featured video game in the final lessons. This is real coding from the ground up.

Introduction

Let's start by writing our very first program. It's a very short program that displays “hello world” on the console window. “Hello World” is a tradition of sorts among all programmers, it's always the first program that anyone runs.

So this unit, we're going to focus on IF Else statements. Services like Netflix will check your age to verify that you're old enough to watch certain movies. But how do they do that? Well, they use an IF Else statement
