This is part 2 of 4 in a series. If you missed the first part of this mini series you can watch Part 1 here.

This 4 part mini-series is suitable for students who would like an introduction to Python coding.  You will need to have an installation of Python which you can download here for free https://www.python.org/ to start the class.

Students will work towards building their own text-based 'Choose Your Own' Adventure game! You will learn about the important concepts of coding in an enjoyable, friendly environment at a relaxed pace.  

Class 2: In this text adventure game class we'll be learning how to present the player with choices, and deciding whether their decision was the correct one or not.
