This will be a course to introduce students to the world of programming, using the Python 3 language. A curriculum written by our curriculum development team will be used. By the end of the course students will have gained a fundamental understanding of programming as well as basic skills in Python such as notions of primitive types, variables, strings, lists, dictionaries, for- and while- loops, and functions. Students will also complete a mini-project towards the end to utilize what they learned as well as showcase their learning. Prerequisites: basic arithmetic skills.

Pre-registration is required for this weeklong program. Along with instruction from experienced high school coders in all of the essentials of Python 3, guest speakers and creative final projects are included to spark prolonged interest in coding. Bring your enthusiasm and a laptop and we’ll coach you through the rest. A limited number of laptops will also be available for use. Snacks are included.
