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.
At YouthCode Python coding classes or camps, students age ten or above will extend their knowledge and coding skills while creating programs in Python. 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.
NOTE: Registration for all Valley Community Center summer camps are through MyOnlineCamp.
