Introduction to Python Workshop

June 24, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This is an intermediate to advanced level workshop for local Hamilton students in Grades 4-8.

Are you interested in leveling-up your coding skills? Have you worked in Scratch, Hopscotch, Khan Academy and are looking for a new challenge? If you answered ‘yes’, then this is the workshop for you! Note: this workshop provides nutritional snacks and computers. Bus tickets are available to those who require transportation. A parent/guardian must pick up their child at 4:00 pm.

This workshop offers local Hamilton students the opportunity to learn the Python language which will allow them to express programming concepts in fewer lines of code than possible in languages such as JavaScript, in a hands-on environment. The workshop will focus on the use of Codecademy, an easy-to-use online platform, where participants will learn the basics of Python through guided tutorials. They will have the opportunity to continue to refine their knowledge of conditionals and control flow, functions, lists & functions, loops and more! After the session, they will be able to continue to explore to develop their coding skills and even show you their masterpiece!
