Learn to Code with Python

Learn to program in Python® while you design interactive games, calculators, art and animations.

 

Over 20 projects teach you how to use the most important constructs of the Python® language, including variables, functions, conditional statements, loops, and lists. 

You’ll also learn to use Python to control a robot - activating motors and sensors, and programming it to complete missions and play games.  Finish the week by creating simple arcade games and then coding your own project entirely in Python!

Coding Skills & Projects

Robot Coding

Python is easy to understand and widely used and valued. Many businesses such as NASA and Google use it and it often is the first language taught at many top universities. Getting comfortable with Python at an early age is a terrific foundation for future programming success. 

Computer Science Foundations

Campers learn to code actions for the Codey Rocky robot.  We'll use Python to activate motors and sensors, program movement, and even play games with other robots.  This combination of Python coding and robotics is a unique summer coding camp experience.
