Python in Pieces is an award-winning coding environment, designed to transition children from block to text code. Ideal for children aged 10 to 16.
What do Bill Gates, Elon Musk and over 60% of computer programmers have in common? They are all self-taught! Python in Pieces has been designed to meet the highest educational standards, but children can use it independently at home. That means they can move at their own pace and aren’t limited by teacher time. The platform contains guided activities that allow children to progress quickly and ensures they never get stuck.
Python in Pieces has been designed to transition children from block to text coding. If your child has no experience of block coding then we suggest trying Purple Mash first.
Guided coding activities
There are 18 activity sets, each exploring a new coding skill. Explainer videos, task lists, hints and solution guides are available for every activity.
Clear coding progression
The activity sets follow a clear progression as children develop a broad set of coding skills, allowing them to tackle increasingly sophisticated challenges.
