Abstract

Motivating teenagers to learn programming can be challenging for they have short attention span and get bored easily. Fortunately, Python and contributions from the community come to the rescue.

Learning to program should be fun and engaging. With projects like Raspberry Pi, Minecraft, CheckiO, IPython Notebook, and PyCharm Edu, educators can introduce Python programming to teens using creative and captivating approaches.
