Computer Science has been getting increasingly popular due to various innovations and exciting possibilities that have emerged in recent years through the cultivation of programming skills. The number of students picking up programming is on the rise but many face a steep learning curve. While it is important for individuals to have the passion or interest to help them stay motivated, programming requires logical thinking skills and strong fundamentals of the basic programming concepts. This project aims to discover the struggles students face and as such, find ways to incorporate fun and interactive ideas to educate students and help keep them motivated. In this project, surveys were completed by students with different programming backgrounds to get a better understanding of the different needs and difficulties they may face. Existing learning programming applications are also reviewed to observe the various methods used to attract students and possible improvements that could be made. Applications that uses the basic concepts and programming structures are created for students to understand implementation and to explore the different ways to come up with similar functions. The applications are done using Python programming language and various libraries. Different versions of the application have been produced to demonstrate the learning curve of programming that students can experience based on their own abilities.
