|July 10 – July 14||Building Basic Websites |
|July 17 – July 21||Minecraft Mods |
Minecraft is one of the most popular games in the world. Using modifications, students can create and enhance their gaming environment in Minecraft—all using code! This week-long course will introduce students to building mods in Minecraft with Python. (Beginner to Intermediate).
|July 24 – July 28||Coding 101|
Never coded before? Not to worry, start here! First, students will dive deep and find out how computers (hardware) understand the instructions humans give them (software). Next, they will learn the building blocks of software development, such as data types, loops, and conditional statements. (Beginner to Intermediate).
|July 31 – August 4||Designing Mobile Apps|
Whether to message our friends and family, scroll through an Instagram feed, or play Fruit Ninja, we use mobile applications every day. Using drag-and-drop tools, students will build simple apps complete with sounds, graphics, interactions, and more. (Beginner to Intermediate).
|July 10 – July 14||Intro to Web Development|
|July 17 – July 21||Intro to Game Design|
In this course, students will learn the basics of game development, including sprite or character design, level construction, and other tools. Then they will create their own game’s events, rules and more, teaching them computational thinking and programming along the way! (Beginner to Intermediate)
|July 24 – July 28||Coding In Python|
Python, out of all the programming languages, most resembles human languages. This makes it easy to learn, but it is also powerful enough to power large search engines like Google. In this course, students will learn the object-oriented programming language with one final goal: building their own game, complete with sounds, graphics, scoreboards, and other interactions! Prior knowledge of algebra, including variables, integers, and evaluation of functions is a prerequisite for this class. (Beginner to Intermediate)
|July 31 – August 4||Intro to Mobile App Development|
Increasingly, we rely on applications (or apps) that we can take with us on the go. In this course, students will learn how to design and build mobile apps, accessible software that can help us send messages to friends, shop online, or order food. The only limit on the types of apps you’ll create is your own imagination! (Beginner to Intermediate)
