Teen Python programming classes Tuesdays

computer programming

Python for grades 9-12
Tuesdays, Mar 28, Apr 4, Apr 11, Apr 18, 3:30-5 PM

2nd floor balcony

This class for 9th-12th graders will teach beginning and intermediate Python skills. No prior programming or teaching experience is required (though students with prior experience are encouraged to participate!). In addition to teaching basic Python skills this class will cover advanced debugging techniques, error catching (using try-except), and database topics.  Students who take this class are invited and encouraged to participate in a new community service opportunity at the library: serving as volunteer teaching assistants for future computer programming classes and hackathons. We will review the hackathon curriculum in detail and explore common mistakes made by beginner programmers. Students who attend the series will be eligible to serve as volunteers at future hackathons and library Python classes and may apply for community service credit.
