What we're about

"The goal of the Hour of Code is not to teach anybody to become an expert computer scientist in one hour. One hour is enough to learn that computer science is fun and creative, that it is accessible at all ages, for all students, regardless of background."

Hour of Code Hong Kong is formed by volunteers in Hong Kong since Dec 2014, by offering voluntary free coding lessons to every citizen in Hong Kong. For more information, please refer to our website below.

我們的目標:

• 全民編程: 推動香港普及編程教育至所有年齡,所有性別,以及所有在香港的各行各業人士

• 互相學習: 把在香港想要學習編程和想要教授編程的人連結在一起

• 教學相長: 完成學習的同學們可以成為教授其他同學的助教以及主導師

• 親子共融: 讓父母和孩子可以共同學習科技、增加互相溝通

Our goals:

• Everyone Can Code: Promote citywide free coding lessons to citizens of all ages, all genders, and all walks of life in Hong Kong

• Learn from each other: Connect people who want to learn coding and people who want to teach coding in Hong Kong

• Train the Trainer: experienced Hour of Code HK volunteers can become teaching assistants or lesson instructors who can teach other students

• Enhancing Parent-child harmony: Parents and children can develop new coding skills and learn technology together, in order to increase mutual communication

快樂寫程式.輕鬆學Python #11 out of 12 - 經典小遊戲:超級貪食蛇 Part 2

This is a Python workshop series. In total, there will be 12 different Python programs. The lessons will be instructed by the young little coder, Raisie, and supported by her daddy.

In this lesson, we will cover part 2 of the "Classical Snake Game”, an interactive graphical program, that will control a moving snake and collect the apple on the screen, and achieve the following learning outcomes:

- how to use the Turtle object

- how to control the speed movement

- how to use conditional statement, if-else

- how to use global variables

- how to take user keystroke inputs

- how to perform basic debugging

多謝各位支持。

提提大家此課堂為文字格式的程式編寫,需要打一定數量的文字,如同學仔不太熟悉鍵盤操作,建議父母從旁協助一起學習。

目標對象:

- 成年人完全沒有程式經驗

- 一般中學生熟悉鍵盤操作

- 小學生最好有父母在旁協助

如大家錯過了早前的課堂,請記得瀏覽YouTube上的錄影片段,重溫相關編程知識。

Thank you very much for joining the HoC Python Lesson today. You can find the Source code on GitHub and video recording of the previous lessons on Youtube here:
