Introduction to Programming: Python

This course is designed to be a gentle introduction to basic programming concepts, such as algorithms, syntax, loops, and variables. The campers will be exposed to the highly popular programming language known as Python. Students will type real Python that encourage trial-and-error, critical thinking, and creativity. They will have to apply critical thinking with coding puzzles that are naturally scaffolded into increasingly challenging problems. The campers will also be encouraged to showcase their creativity by building and sharing their programs. There will be opportunities for students to collaborate when they get stuck. Coding requires kids to practice new forms of communication, including communicating with the computer itself and conveying their ideas using the most efficient code. Students then apply the coding skills they’ve learned by developing their own scripts and programs in an interactive project-based environment.

No Prerequisites Required.Students are encouraged to bring a pen/pencil as well as a notebook to the program

JavaScript - Web application development

This course is designed for students looking to dive into the realm of World Wide Web. Using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS; students will construct interactive web pages. In addition, students will be exposed to tools and concepts such as Google Analytics, Search Engine Optimization, and the full life cycle of web development. Students of all different interests will benefit greatly as technical students and visually creative students work together on projects that help them build communication and collaborative skills, all while each student doing what he/she loves most.

Students are encouraged to bring a pen/pencil as well as a notebook to the program
