What is Python in Pieces?

Python in Pieces is an interactive coding environment, designed to build student and teacher confidence in the text-based coding language of Python. With the ability to easily translate from block-code to Python, in BOTH directions, students will quickly become empowered to progress from the expectations of upper primary school through to Secondary School. The guided lessons allow students to manage their own learning and teacher solution guides enable teachers to support student learning at every step.

I really am excited about Python in Pieces, I really think it will be the perfect stepping stone between the work we already do with scratch, and introducing python at a younger age.
