Sunday 21st August, 2011
11:00am to 11:30am
We present two outreach programmes run by Sydney University for high school students: the National Computer Science School (http://www.ncss.edu.au) and the Girls’ Programming Network (http://sydney.edu.au/it/gpn). For the past four years we have been teaching Python to students in grades 9-12, and based on this experience we will discuss why Python is a good first language and the parts of it which are still difficult for students to grasp. We will also cover the structure of the programmes and tools used, in particular the online marking system for Python programming tasks.
