An Introduction to Python Basics

Python is a backend programming language that’s great for beginners. It is a versitile language with a large, strong community. There are endless projects that can be made just using Python. In this course, we introduce students to the basics of Python with Minecraft building.

Learn Through Play

Our goal with Intro to Python, and all BrainSTEM courses, is to keep learners in a playful state of mind. In our Intro to Python course, students are motivated to learn coding skills to make a fun and engaging Minecraft™ environment. At the end of the course, students will be able to share their environment with friends.

Celebrate Creativity

This isn’t your average coding course. Our Intro to Python curriculum celebrates student creativity. Learners use Minecraft™, a game centered around building, engineering, and imagining. We encourage student creativity throughout the course and provide additional resources for students to dive deeper.

Inspiration to Pursue STEM Careers
