COMPUTER PROGRAMMING CAMP WITH PYTHON™

(Ages 11 to 14)

Lots of new project options for Summer 2017!

Welcome to the exciting world of computer programming with Python™!

Did you know that sites like YouTube, Dropbox, and Instagram are coded in Python? If you want to create your own site and share your innovation with the world, it is time to start learning Python™!

In this computer programming camp, campers learn to code cool graphics, games, and programs! Campers benefit from clean syntax and other streamlined attributes within Python™ that provide a new approach to learning and understanding programming. With Python™, coders can often write code more quickly, allowing them to produce more project results in a shorter period of time.

In this camp, our students learn new programming concepts and skills, develop logical thinking, and code impressive and entertaining projects!

Smaller camp projects may include an Automatic Sentence Generator, A Weather Predictor App, A Sports Game, and/or a Code Breaking Wizard.  Larger Camp Projects may include a camper’s creatively generated text based RPG Game or Adventure Game!

To maximize positive interaction and group collaboration, campers beta test the projects of other campers during the week!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Critical Thinking Skills: As you learn how to code, you will improve your logic as a whole and start thinking like a professional programmer. You get to know the inside and outs of how computer software is created from step one to distribution.

Programming Terminology: By immersing yourself in computer programming, you will learn and pick up on terminology and computer lingo used by computer programmers.  You will also learn key words and phrases that help you to improve your coding skills and know how.

IDLEs & Text-based Programming: Do you know what IDLE stands for? By the end of this camp, not only will you learn the concept of how computers translate your codes into super cool programs, but also how this system is used in many other popular languages such as Java on an international scale.

Strengthen Math Skills: Programming can improve your math skills. By coding your favorite programs, you will be exposed to the concepts of Set, Range, List, Positive/Negative, Integers/Double Numbers, and more!

Implementing Graphics: Programming would not be as fun if it was missing shapes and colors. Campers enhance their projects by learning how to code graphical elements. Campers can create their own game using Pygame – a library used for Graphics in Python, which can then be distributed to family and friends!

*No prior programming experience is required. This camp is for beginners and intermediates.

At the end of camp, campers should bring a USB to camp to have their projects copied to take home. Campers learn how to install Python and continue their coding projects at home.

All Campers Receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt and take home their projects from the camp week!

*For campers interested in Coding with Python Camp, we also recommend our Computer Programming Camp with Java, Web Design Camp Elite Skills Minecraft Camp with Java Coding, and Game Design Camp with GameMaker.
