Description

Python Discoverers  

 

How can students take their coding game and problem-solving skills to the next level? They can learn a “grown-up” language! 

 

This is for kids ages 10-14. 

 

In Python Discoverers, we will guide students through the fundamentals of computers, computing science, logic, and coding. Students will learn the basics of the Python programming language along with Jupyter Notebooks — the same modern tools used by universities and technology companies. 

 

We will integrate many number-sense concepts from the math curriculum, using technology. 

 

Students will learn various computer science concepts, such as: 

  • Basic data types 
  • Basic arithmetic operations and control flows 
  • Variables 
  • Loops 
  • Debugging 

 

Skill Level 

Students should have experience with block-based coding and are ready to progress with text-based coding with Python.  

 

 

Python Explorers 

 

For ages 10-14. 

 

How can students take their coding game and problem-solving skills to the next level? They can learn a “grown-up” language! 

 

Python Explorers is for students who want to continue to build the skills and knowledge they discovered in Python Discoverers. Students re-enforce and grow their usage of Python programming with Jupyter Notebooks — the same modern tools used by universities and technology companies. 

 

We will integrate many number-sense concepts from the math curriculum, as well as make more complex games like hangman. 

 

Students will learn various computer science concepts, such as: 

  • Data science concepts
  • More advanced control flow logic 
  • Complex conditionals and loops 
  • Data structures 
  • Debugging 

 

This is a 10-session program that runs twice a week. Each class is 90 min. 

 

Skill Level 

Students should have experience with block-based coding and are ready to progress with text-based coding with Python.  

  

 

Python Challenger – Virtual Class  

 

For ages 10-15. 

 

Refine your Python and problem-solving skills through our coding challenges classes.  Kids will be presented with various real life or gaming problems and use Python to solve them. We will learn various problem solving techniques and algorithms to help solve these problems. This class part of a series of classes to train kids to complete coding competitions.  

  

This is a 10-session program that runs over 2 weeks. Each class is 90 minutes.

  

Skill Level 

Students should have completed Python Discoverers and Python Explorers.
