Course Detail: GAME102 - GAME BUILDING WITH PYTHON: (Middle School) In-Person
GAME BUILDING WITH PYTHON: This course serves as an introduction to learning how to program using the Python programming language: one of the most popular programming languages used in real-world projects. What better way to make programming exciting for young learners than by building a game? In this course, we will build a simple game in one week breaking it down to learn how the components of the game all come together starting with the basics.
Students will learn concepts that will be very useful for high-school level (and higher) computer science courses. They will learn concepts such as algorithms (not logarithms, so do not worry if they're not fond of math), functions, loops, lists, dictionaries (not the word/meaning kind), conditionals, and libraries (not the physical kind). This course is designed for students without any programming experience.
LUNCH: Students staying for full day or for both morning and afternoon sessions can bring or buy their lunch. All students will eat lunch on Campus in The Commons, a small food court.
