When is the last time you looked at a paper map, or bus/train schedules or a telephone book? Almost everything we do is controlled by exciting technology and this camp explores the many ways that computers and coding impact the world around us!
Join us for a week of engaging content designed to introduce basic coding skills so that campers are up to date with technology and have an understanding of computer programming. Campers receive hands-on training to learn the fundamentals of python programming language through engaging and interactive lessons. Our expert instructors will teach campers how to use python, learning the primary constructs of programming (sequence, selection, and repetition) by recreating common programs like quizzes, counters, and choose your own adventure games. These programs will help beginners lay an excellent foundation for programming, and provide those who have some experience, with specific instruction and detailed computer projects to build. No programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using Windows is expected. Topics will include variables, math operators, if else statements, loops, random numbers, decision–making, repetition and timers. Time during the week is also devoted to outdoor activities and there is recreational swim time and hot nutritional lunches included in the schedule so that your camper has a well-rounded day. At the end of the week, campers will put all their new skills together to create their own unique program and take home the skills needed to create more on their own!
