This course will introduce students to Python programming and the basics of computer science. Students will learn how to program in the Python language, and they will become familiar with common computer science practices, such as variables, looping, and condition statements, that can be applied to other programming languages. This class is designed to be more fun than informative, so most of our time will be spent incorporating what we learn to build simple games in Python and diving into how computer games work. Student will have a chance to make their own versions of common games, adding in features they like.
Note: This class is designed for middle school students. The Sally Ride Science Junior Academy courses are designed to inspire young adults to pursue careers in STE[+a]M.
