Learn the fundamentals of Python, one of the most popular and fastest growing programming languages in the world. Start by building applications that expose you to programming principles and ultimately build a simple, yet functional, computer game using Python. As you learn to program you will also have the opportunity to discover more about Computer Science and some careers in the area that could be right for you. At the end of the camp you will take home the Raspberry Pi computer you’ve used to build your applications!
