About

This website is an offshoot from Pascal Programming for Schools and is a homemade experimental site. The aim is to encourage school students, particularly those in programming clubs, to experiment with code and extend their experience beyond what is required by the curriculum for their year group. While Pascal is an excellent language for learning to program in a structured way and is probably the easiest language to read, talented student programmers will want to try other languages and compare their strengths and weaknesses.

The site will be tested in Chrome and some other browsers. If you have problems with another browser such as Internet Explorer, please try a different browser (preferably Chrome). The intention is to update the site frequently, so proofreading will be an ongoing process.

Editor and Webmaster

The editor and webmaster is Norman Morrison (nmorrison at pp4s.co.uk), who will be keen for feedback and contributions of interesting student programs once the website is launched. The editor began his career as a research chemist then became a teacher of Chemistry, Science and Information Technology. He took a break from teaching to work for Y2Ki, an information service on the Year 2000 problem in Computing. This led to the teaching of Computing and the experience of preparing students for examinations set by both the AQA and OCR boards. He is now spending the early part of his retirement editing Pascal Programming for Schools and this site.
