PyFUN Programming Summer Camp
Mon, Jul 24, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, Jul 28, 2017, 4:00 PM CDT
Begin a programming and problem solving journey that will unlock the power of Python! Learn the fundamentals of this general-purpose, high-level scripting language with a fun, step-by-step approach that makes coding easy and exciting for young students.
The LSU Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) will host the PyFUN Programming Summer Camp for boys and girls entering grades six through eight (6-8) in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. This 5-day camp will consist of basic concepts of programming that are used in any programming language, and will include:
- Problem solving
- What the parts of a computer are and how they work together
- Strings and console output
- Conditionals and flow control
- Functions, lists, dictionaries, and loops
- Introduction to classes
- File input and output
Complete fun mini-challenges throughout the week, and get a taste for real-world programming! Our work all week will be completed with a half-day programming contest on Friday morning. Students will also create a webpage that parents may use to see the problems solved and code created each day as well as their student's description of the day.
WHO: Middle school age children (entering grades 6-8) in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. General computer knowledge required-this is a beginner level course.
REGISTRATION & COSTS: $130.00 pp. CCT will provide computers, supplies and lunches during the camp, but participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from LSU’s campus. CCT will accept participants on a first-come, first-serve basis.
DAILY SCHEDULE: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM; two snacks and a lunch will be provided each day.
