[Summer] Python Intro Class (Online)

Class Schedule: June 11, Thu - July 6, Mon (4 weeks)
Every Monday and every Thursday at 2 - 3:30 p.m
2 classes per week (8 classes)

This summer course will cover the basics of coding with Python. All coding is built using the building blocks taught in this course. In order to properly learn more difficult and abstract concepts, a strong foundational skill level is needed for all of these building blocks. We aim to teach and provide the necessary practice for these topics in order for our students to succeed.

Thank you for your interest in this class!
The course has started and the registration is closed now.
