Course Summary:

Students type real Python while playing games that encourage trial-and-error, critical thinking, and creativity. Students then apply the coding skills they’ve learned by vanquishing enemies through fun and interactive game play with CodeCombat. 

As it turns out, learning with real code enables them to learn faster too. WAY faster. It’s like having a conversation instead of reading a manual. Everyone should have the chance to learn the magic of programming.

-1 year membership with Code Combat
