Thomas Cooper will lead this workshop from 8:30am - 4:00pm in room 345 of the College of Computing Building at Georgia Tech. For directions see Directions to the College of Computing Building. Teachers will learn how to use python to create a simple face, more complex shapes, speech balloons, and animation. Teachers will create a temperature convertor with a Graphical User Interface. Teachers will write a Python function to display a nursery rhyme or song. Teachers will also create art with the Scribbler robots.
All teachers who attend will receive a Python book.
