INTRO TO COMPUTER PROGRAMMING WITH PYTHON Level 1: (6th, 7th, 8th)
The class is a 15-week course (over 4-5 months). We will cover the basics of “real” computer programming in Python, an easy-to-learn language that is used today in many companies. The children will learn how to read, write, and modify basic Python programs. We will learn about variables, loops, if-then-else statements, and functions. Some of the topics we will cover include how to use Python to do math problems, draw pictures, write a quiz, and make secret messages. Previous typing experience is very beneficial. Previous programming experience is not expected. The class material is challenging and is best suited for students who like computers and enjoy problem-solving.*Note that this class typically requires the purchase of a Raspberry Pi 3, Model B, normally around $60. Unfortunately, due to supply chain issues, these devices are currently very expensive to purchase. For this semester, students can bring another device such as Chromebook, Windows or Mac laptop to take the class. We will return to using the Raspberry Pi when prices return to normal.

PROGRAMMING WITH PYTHON Level 3: (6th, 7th, 8th)
We will continue where the Programming With Python Level 2 Class left off. After a quick review will continue to introduce more concepts like sorting, searching for data in a CSV file, and more about object-oriented programming. The students will also start solving simple problems using their programming skills. Some of the programs we will be writing include a matching pairs game, a sink your ship game, an image-based puzzle, and a MIDI music player.

Date: Friday, September 30th – Feb 3rd
Time: 5:35PM - 6:35PM (Off 11/11, 11/25, 12/23, 12/30)

PROGRAMMING WITH JAVA Level 1: (7th, 8th, 9th, 10th)
We will cover the basics of Java, how it is different from Python, and what the two languages have in common. We will learn about the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and what compiling a program means. Students will learn more about implementing and debugging algorithms to solve problems, and we will specifically focus on object-oriented software development strategies. Students will use Interfaces and Classes and understand the differences between them. They will learn to use the different levels of visibility that Java allows when writing their programs. We will explore some of Java’s APIs for input and output, as well as its support for data structures such as Lists, Maps, and Trees. Students will become familiar with JavaDoc, and how to search the Java documentation to answer their own Java API questions. *Students must have completed Python Level 4 in order to enroll in this class

Date: Thursday, September 22nd - January 12th
Time: 4:30PM - 5:30PM (Off 11/24, 12/29)
