My Python Archive

This is just an archive of links to various Python projects I made while enrolled for the Python programming classes at Coursera.

Feel free to click on the links, play the games and re-use the code as you like (except if you are doing them as part of Coursera’s homework assignments)!!!

Just press the ‘Play’ button on the CodeSkulptor toolbar to start the program.

Printer’s Hat : Much More Than Just a Hat

A Printer’s Hat is very easy to make. Even little children can learn how to fold it very quickly.

It is made from eco-friendly newspaper, fully biodegradable and has many many uses. It makes a super paper plate for chips and munchies at a picnic or at a campsite. Its great for holding soil for seedlings, lined with a plastic bag it can hold water, and painted or plain, it makes an attractive hat!

Here is my youtube video on how to make a Printer’s Hat!
