Event description

Description

Under the GUI specializes in Coding for Kids and we’re excited to offer the experience year-round. Welcome to Summer Tech Camps 2017! Our instructors are industry professionals and love working with kids! Register today to tinker & learn about technology with real world experiences.

Students in this camp will be working with Python to understand computer algorithms and computer programming basics. This is an introduction to computer programming concepts, designs, and implementations through learning how to create games by scripting themselves! At the end of this camp, students will have created their own versions of their favorite games that they can share with their friends and family. Additionally, they will have built the foundations to understand computer programming principles and logic.
