DT Challenge - 7/8 Python - Biology
Learn about the differences between animals, and how Biologists use programming to help them do science! We'll learn about the features of animals, and how to use their differences in order to classify them.
So hop in and learn some science! This course is based on the Year 7 science and the 7-8 Digital Technologies curriculum.
To do the challenge offline use this guide to support students.
