Junior Python 1 - Holiday Coding Camp for Ages 11 - 12

About this Event

Python is the world’s fastest-growing programming language. It’s a versatile language used in a wide range of contexts, from web development to scientific applications and machine learning.

Our Junior Python program is a series of courses designed to help younger learners ages 11-12 pick up Python in a smooth and meaningful way.

We begin building our foundation by learning the most basic instructions that can be understood by every computer, to build virtually any computer program: using variables to store and manipulate data, making simple decisions using conditionals, repeating instructions using loops. We then learn how to use functions to implement two key problem-solving skills – decomposition of a problem into simpler parts, and abstraction of details to focus on the appropriate level of detail. We see how this helps to enhance the readability and reusability of code, which are both critical in any large program.

At the end of the Junior Python course sequence, students will have mastered the core concepts of control flow and be comfortable coding in Python. Students will then be able to join their older peers in our Principles 3 course to learn about Data Structures.

Course Outline

1. Variables and Data Types
