July 10 – July 14Intro to Web Development
Students will learn the building blocks of web development: HTML, CSS, Javascript/JQuery, version control, user interaction and user experience design, and several additional concepts that are involved in building and maintaining websites. They will use these building blocks to develop and improve upon their own websites. (Beginner to Intermediate)
July 17 – July 21Intro 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 28Coding 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 4Intro 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)
