  • Camp Description

    Who’s ready to get to learning PYTHON! Sounds a little gross, like a giant snake right? But it’s actually one of the hottest programming languages around today. Take advantage of the easy-to-read style of coding while picking up on one of the most popular languages today for professional and beginner programmers alike. We’ll start out by using an online python platform to learn some basics and practice some fundamental concepts, and time permitting and based on our camper skill set, we may jump on to some more complex Python programming, potentially getting into coding with PyGame for gaming apps.

    Teaching Platform

    Python Startup Coding Camp at theCoderSchool One of the most popular programming languages today, Python allows beginners to easily read and understand the code while providing an almost endless supply of libraries and supporting systems to do things from web development to machine learning or artificial intelligence to data science or data structures and yes, even a particular version of Minecraft! Depending on the student skill level, we’ll likely start with online intro coding platforms like Trinket or Pixelpad.io, and may extend into pure Python coding and local machine development, time (and skill) permitting.

    Concepts Learned

    Our Python coding camps are in-person with hands-on real world coding. Campers will pick up general computer science skills like problem solving, algorithm design, teamwork, code debugging, and perhaps most importantly, all campers going through this python course will learn and practice the logical thinking skills required to program a computer at any level! In addition campers will gain experience in:
  • An introduction to a typed programming language, for programmers who have only used Scratch
  • Python Skills and Syntax(loops, variable, structure, etc)
  • Function calls
  • Cartesian Coordinates through Python coding (Trinket)
  • and More!
  • Skill Level

    Because Python is a purely typed programming language, we require that our campers have some typing experience. Slow typers are likely to get frustrated with the experience, and potentially focus too much on typing rather than gaining coding skills. Python programming experience isn’t required, but general logic and problem-solving solving skills will be needed to help with understanding the basic coding concepts and help them to learn all they can. As always, if your camper is a regular student with us, be sure to check with us first, as often the Python coding language is covered in more detailed in our regular after-school Coaching sessions.

    What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding classes for kids? Founded in 2013, we're the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
