Grade 7 - 11 | No coding experience is needed
We recommend students who have no prior coding experience start with our Python course to build strong foundational skills to succeed in coding.
In this course, students will learn Python language syntax to learn computer science fundamentals and strengthen their knowledge and skillsets through various exercises and problem-solving. Our curriculum focuses on improving logic and writing algorithms and hands-on practice.
This beginner course is the most reliable way to go further from beginner to intermediate.
Subcourses & Curriculum
Meeting the Basics
In this course, students will learn the basics by simply having fun and playing with them. This course covers about 70% of the basic topics.
Learn: Data Types, Variables, Operators, If-Statements, Loops, Strings, Functions
Create: Interactive programs, graphical simulations.
Focus: Have fun. Have a solid understanding of the basics for more advanced topics.
Students will learn the remaining 30% of the essential topics and apply the acquired skills to make some programs hands-on.
Learn: List, Dictionary, Set, Nested Loops
Focus: Unleash Creativity, Repetition, Practice, Exercises
Students will continue to learn Python's more advanced topics and focus on devising logic and structuring programs at a higher level.
Learn: Class, Objects, Inheritance
Make: Games and Apps
Focus: Logic Building, Product Polish, Large Scale Apps
Upon completion students should be able to write code with Python and should expect to develop a strong foundation for coding and better problem-solving skills. Students also should feel comfortable developing games by using Python.
2021 Summer Classes
Java, Web Development, and USACO Classes & Workshops will be offered during the summer of 2021. Keep your programming skills sharp and solidify your understanding of coding while having fun!
Current Python Classes in Sessions
Students with prior coding experience may be able to join an existing class. Upon request, we will send you an evaluation sheet to evaluate your student to find the class that fits the best. After evaluation, we may determine that your student will need supplementary sessions to catch up before joining the class to cover missed material. Once the student learns all of the missed material, they will move to the recommended group class.
