Camp at a Glance

This course is designed for campers who want to learn the Python programming language. It is recommended that campers have had some prior knowledge of programming concepts; however, it is not mandatory. Campers will be working on projects incrementally utilizing the concepts they have learned. Campers will also work on independent projects and learn the idea of abstraction – the process of taking away or removing characteristics from something in order to reduce it to a set of essential characteristics. (The recommended prerequisite course for this camp is Programming 201: Introduction to Java Programming using Greenfoot.)
