This 4-week course is jam-packed with critical skills and techniques used by software developers today. The course is divided into two parts, with each part containing a series of activities and projects that get students coding throughout the majority of each day!
Part 1: Java and Computer Science
Students learn Java, a high-level programming language that involves countless transferrable skills and concepts. Topics covered include object-oriented programming and recursion. This course will prepare for students for the AP Computer Science Exam.
Part 2: Python and Data Science
Students learn the fundamentals of coding in the Python language. Python is rooted in mathematical computation, enabling students to learn the principals of data science, such as visualization of complex data sets, along the way.
Prerequisites & Ages: The program is ideal for high school students with a strong interest in coding. Prior coding/programming experience is not required, but students must be comfortable with computer basics. This course is great for any teen interested in coding, finance, journalism, marketing, and communication.
