Block-based code is fun, and it's really good for getting to grips with code concepts - but it has no real-world application.
Python, however, is used everywhere. It's a very popular programming language, but it has a steep learning curve. In Game Dev Modders sessions you'll be able to speed through the basics and work your way to pro-coder, and maybe even a future career!
We have live sessions with your mentor once a week, but outside of that we're also online every day! Use your time to work through the basics, learn the theory and work with your mentor in the club to practice your skills.
Using code blocks in our Python game engine will help you understand how the syntax works and how everything fits together.
When you are confident with how to build a game, transition to writing code in Python - using blocks as hints if you need them!
Get more confident with code by modding games through a step-by-step process, and work with your mentor to discover how code works.
Share newly created games with other members at The Code Zone and show off all the fantastic mods you've created!
If your child is a Minecraft fan, they can join the Minecraft Mod Club, and practice their skills in blocks or even Python by creating mods.
