Teen Coding is an immersive, multi-week course for middle and high school students (grades 7-10) to learn how we communicate with computers, and what tools and "languages" we use to build and run websites, apps, and video games. Taught by industry experts, students will gain valuable skills that will spark their creative curiosity and prepare them for the future of coding.
Registration Fee: $250 per course or $450 if registering for both sessions
Materials: Flash drive, notebook, and pencil are recommended but not required
These courses are planned for an in-person environment but may change to virtual, depending on state/local guidelines.
HTML & CSS: HTML and CSS are the fundamental languages that compose all Web pages on the Internet. In this 4-week course, students will be introduced to coding using a markup language . Students will learn how to use tags to create their own pages without needing math or advanced logic skills. By the end of the course, students will be able to link webpages, create their own visual styling, embed images and videos, and animate their online content. All webpages will be hosted on a student controlled account so they can share their creations with others.
Python: Python is an object-oriented programming language that is as simple as it is elegant. Python is implemented on many platforms from desktop to mobile apps due to its accessibility and power. The Python course will teach beginner and immediate coding skills in the Python programming language. Students will use Turtle programming to create with the Python language and traditional methods to learn coding logic. Coding will be on the online platform, Repl.it, so students can take their programs anywhere.
All tuition and related fees must be paid in advance prior to being accepted into coding institute. Note that payment does not guarantee acceptance as minimum and maximum enrollment apply. Fees are paid online, and your coder's registration is secured once payment is received and confirmed.
In an effort to streamline our registration process, the Student Information and Medication Authorization Forms will be submitted via our online portal after your registration is complete and confirmed. Your coder will not be allowed into the Teen Coding sessions without our receipt of your completed medical forms. All participants must have a Student Information Form on file, but the Medication Authorization Form is only required if your coder needs to take medicine during the hours of the course. Please note that the Medication Authorization Form requires the signature of the prescribing doctor.
- Please make sure that your coder arrives on time and is picked up in a timely manner.
- Drop-off/Pick-up windows vary for each session.
- Camp staff are not able to supervise your coder before or after session hours.
- Coders may not leave campus without written permission.
In accordance with our safety policy, students may only be released to the legal guardian or an authorized adult listed on the Student Transportation/Pick-Up section of the Student Information Form. All adults must present a photo ID. If the adult is not listed, he/she will not be permitted to take the child from the session.
We understand that emergencies arise; in which case, please contact 704.330.6035 with formal documentation to make a change in the transportation/pick-up needs of the student. Emailed requests must match the contact information stated in the registration.
(For those coders who are able to drive themselves to and from camp )
