Intro to Programming Online

Ages 10-15

Intro to Programming Online 

Is for students who would like to be more familiar with the core concepts of programming and program design and are ready to move on to more powerful “typed languages”. Students will take the basic Python skills they learned to the next level and create complex projects, e.g. a Connect 4 game with an intelligent computer opponent. Using a professional development environment allows students to learn more complex Python concepts, such as writing classes and data analysis techniques. Students will also be introduced to Web Development with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript where they will build dynamic, interactive web pages and games, and receive an introduction to what the web really is and how it works. Students will learn the importance of well-structured code, as well as designing web pages with a clean user experience.

Kids learn better together. The best part of camp is the fun with other students. We encourage team work during lessons and after sessions.
