Project ID - TIS001047
We have recently started a Computing Club in Edmund Rice College, running from 3pm-4.30pm every Wednesday. The students are very keen to learn and have been doing various projects such as using Code.org, Code Academy Scratch and learning to use the Raspberry Pi. We would like someone to develop a project where the students learn to programme a game using Python or even creating an App in App Inventor or any other worthwhile project in which the students will leana nd enjot. This students would make a suitable project which can be delivered over the period. This should be targeting at boys aged 11-13 who have no previous experience of programming.
