Coding Camp

Coding Camp provides an introduction to computer programming using the Python language. The camp includes both instruction and hands-on experience in applying computational approaches to critical thinking, problem solving, and creative expression. The instruction will be given at a level that assumes no prior programming experience, and which focuses on basic principles of writing code in any language. While the programming principles covered in this camp could lead into deeper study of computer science and software development, the primary goal is to provide campers with tools to begin their journey in programming and to equip them with basic knowledge and thinking skills to continue to grow in their use of software to solve real-world problems.

No coding experience required for the camp!
