Learning Python in Grade School
About This Session
Demonstrate elementary school lesson plans in math, programming, and Computer Science using the Python-programmable tile in Turtle Art in Sugar for the OLPC XO. Turtle Art can demonstrate plane geometry, analytic geometry, and a fair amount of Computer Science, such as a Universal Turing Machine. Children can explore much further while practicing Python skills by adding functions to the programmable tile.
