Let's Play Code Combat: Playing with Python

Workshop Categories: Algorithms & Programming
Key Stages: KS2 KS3


Code Combat is a multiplayer game to help people learn to program. Through solving puzzles and defeating ogres players progress through the game levels to learn increasingly complex programming concepts.

This workshop uses the Code Combat resource to help set the context for the day. Pupils begin the workshop by registering and playing a few levels of the game for themselves, before being asked to apply their computational thinking skills to attempt to decompose the main elements of the game. .

If you have any questions about the workshop, please get in touch with the team: dsh@ukie.org.uk
