  • Claremont Primary School visited Djanogly

    Introduction to Python

    Students from Claremont Primary School visited Djanogly, on 27th June, to take part in an 'Introduction to Python' session, as part of their school's 'Coding Week'.

    The students were very enthusiastic and managed to produce little programs that displayed their name and facts about themselves. They were also able to work out some maths problems using Python.

    Special thanks to Piotrek Janusz, Danny GoGo and Ahmed Ishtiaq for their brilliant support with the students!'
