For the spring semester, Mr. Huang will be offering an Advanced Coding elective. See below for class description and prerequisites. We will announce the opening of registration soon.
 
Advanced Coding with Python: Minecraft Hacking (prerequisite: Python Level 1) (Spring semester only)
 
Use your Python skills to make Minecraft hacks! We will learn how to use an API (Application Programming Interface) to build new applications on top of existing technology. Students must have taken the Introduction to Python Level 1 class or equivalent. Working knowledge of the Python programming language is required. The ability to touch type (typing without looking at the keyboard) is also highly recommended. In addition to attending classes, students are expected to complete homework assignments. Each student must bring their own laptop and mouse to class. Mac, Windows, or Linux laptops are acceptable. Chromebooks and tablets are not allowed. The instructor will need administrator rights to set up the programming environment on each computer at the start of the semester. We will be using Learn to Program with Minecraft by Craig Richardson as our textbook. Class size is limited to a maximum of 8 students. Registration cost is for 1 semester only. Material fee includes an individual license to Minecraft for Windows/Mac/Linux.
 
Class cost: $275
Book fee: $27
Material fee: $37
See you all tomorrow!
Your principal,
Francine Fang 方敏
