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. It is 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 coding camp, students age ten or above will extend their knowledge and coding skills while creating programs in Python. During this ten hours of camp, students will be presented with computer science principles, complete unplugged activities and receive instruction to create various projects covering topics such as the integrated development environment (IDE); inputs, outputs, variables, variable types, input validation, error handling and randomization. Students will also take part in digital citizenship discussions as well as physical activities, snacks and drinks between projects.
