With many schools closed due to COVID-19, Amazon Future Engineer is helping to meet students needs by launching a free virtual coding programme – in partnership with Fire Tech.

The resources are available for students, teachers and parents for two months from 3 April to 3 June 2020 so there's still time to make use of them. These resources cater for students aged 12 to 17 to help build computer science skills for students learning at home.

Access 20 hours of free content, these resources use a Python Programming Platform, exploring ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ themes, plus a moderated forum and handy FAQs. Students can earn experience points for completing the work and earn badges when they unlock skills.

The programme covers computer programming aspects that are in line with Key Stage 3 and 4 of the English National Curriculum. Not only that, but by the end of the course, students will have solved problems of an equivalent level to GCSE Computer Science courses.

If you're a teacher interested in using this with their class remotely, you can also request special access to a teacher dashboard, which will allow you to track your students' progress.
