Python is a great starting text-based, object-oriented language for youth as it has a gentle learning curve, is concise and easy to read, and has lots of available documentation and learning resources from a robust community. It is also a good language to have in any coder’s portfolio as it can be used for everything from web development to software development and scientific applications.

In this YouthCode coding camp, students age nine or above will extend basic computer science principles and coding skills while creating programs in Python. During these ten hours of camp, students will be presented with computer science principles, complete unplugged activities and receive instruction to create various projects. Topics covered include:

  • Using the Integrated Development Environment
  • Inputs and outputs
  • Variables, strings and concatenation
  • Immutable and mutable objects
  • Input validation and error handling
  • Computer-generated randomization
Registration includes use of computers and accessories as well as all materials. Students will also receive a special camp souvenir.   

Prerequisites

  • Youth ages 9 and above
  • Prior YouthCode Scratch class or equivalent
