Codesters is the classroom-friendly application for teaching coding in school. Our curriculum teaches kids to code in Python, a powerful, text-based programming language. Our unique learn-to-code platform enables students to create anything they can imagine with graphics, animation, interactive elements, and even a physics engine. Codesters is great for kids just learning to code, and it forms the perfect bridge when students are ready to transition from block-based to text-based coding.

Codesters also gives teachers a learning management system that makes it easy to bring coding into their classrooms. We provide a built-out curriculum full of step-by-step lessons that give students automatic feedback and assessments. Teachers can even track students’ progress through their class dashboard. Codesters makes it simple for teachers to start teaching coding right away—no prior coding experience necessary.

Intro to Coding in Python part 2 is a continuation of Intro to Coding in Python part 1 designed to allow students to delve deeper into programming topics and hone their coding skills. Part 2 contains 20 fun and engaging, project-based lessons covering topics such as:

  • Functions
  • Advanced List Manipulations
  • Indexes
  • Events
  • Program Design
  • Game Mechanics

Students also learn critical skills such as:

  • Debugging
  • Refactoring
  • Problem solving
  • Developing algorithms
  • Computational thinking

Some example projects include:

  • Astronaut Rescue (maneuver your rocket to rescue astronauts without hitting any UFOs)
  • What-a-Shark (underwater whack-a-mole)
  • Party Invitation (modular e-card creator)
  • Refactor This Code

Each lesson comes with a lesson plan for the teacher and a lesson guide with coding vocabulary, answer keys, and common student errors. Plus, the Codesters project space has been updated to meet student privacy standards. Students' projects are private - they are not shared on the public page or are visible to users outside the school or district.
