​Data structures

​Because variables cannot be used for real-life programming, data is grouped or, more precisely, structured in a specific format. The collection of data structured together is called a data structure.

This ​KS3 Computer Science module introduces ​​data structures to your students, explaining:

  • ​Why variables are not enough in real-life programming?
  • What are data structures?
  • Implementing data structures in Scratch
  • What are arrays and lists?
  • Accessing arrays and lists using Python programming language
