Be a Coder -
Learn to program in Python® through interesting projects such as creating quick interactive games, art and animations, and controlling a Codey Rocky robot.
Your projects teach how to use the most important constructs of the Python® language, including variables, functions, conditional statements, loops, and lists.
You’ll finish the week by creating your own project entirely in Python! Prerequisite - Comfort and familiarity with typing is required (at least 20 words per minute recommended).

Coding Skills & Projects
Campers create a variety of robots while exploring sensors and mechanisms. Then, they program the movements and display of each robot, so students can see in a tangible way how their code creates action. Code includes loops and if-then conditionals.
Python is easy to understand and widely used and valued. Many businesses such as NASA and Google use it and it often is the first language taught at many top universities. Getting comfortable with Python at an early age is a terrific foundation for future programming success.
