Python is a popular coding language that has a minimal and easy-to-read style. It’s moving fast up the rankings of the most popular languages! In this popular Python camp, we will teach your child to code, edit and problem-solve in a structured and methodical manner.

About this camp

Our kids’ python classes begin with a theoretical examination of coding logic using flowcharts and pseudocode a crucial step for a good coder – first understand the problem, outline a solution and then write code. This is followed by an orientation to Python and plenty of hands-on learning covering topics such as datatypes, variables, user inputs, branching, iteration, functions and so much more.

We will keep your teenagers occupied and engaged all day as our team of experienced programming experts teach kids python in a fun and dynamic format using tools like the Turtle Module. 

As well as learning python coding your child will also learn how to problem-solve with this fun and interactive summer python camp.
