What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6754)

Fantastic resource, I have used this to teach programming theory as well as Python commands to my current year 10 GCSE class... Various activities to give to students...It's structured in the sense from the basics to the more advanced skills and each section has a test/challenge at the end." &nfash; S Iqbal, customer
