Python is a programming language that can be used many ways such as to create games, build websites and develop applications.
This is a great opportunity to introduce your child to the world of coding or build upon their existing knowledge.
12 week Python Program Overview
This 12 week program uses CodeCombat’s new educational coding game, Ozaria; an adventure game where students play the hero in a quest to save the world from evil. Their knowledge of coding advances with the storyline, as they use code to complete mini-quests and challenges.
Each week, students will learn new concepts from expert instructors and then work with our volunteers as they apply these new concepts.
Students will attend twice a week (Saturdays at 10am and Wednesdays at 5pm)
– Saturday sessions are set up for the students to practice what they have learned.
– Wednesday sessions will be led by certified Python teachers so we have coverage on those sessions.
