Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Learning to Code: Intermediate Python

Virtual delivery
Ages 12 to 13 (grades 7 to 8)


In-person option available (Ages 12 to 13) 

Campers who have taken a previous introductory Python course will enjoy this project-based camp. This camp was developed to allow campers to expand on their base knowledge in Python programming using replit. As campers dive deeper into various Python types, functions, and libraries, they will be tasked with fun design projects that require them to express their creativity through coding to form a solution. Throughout the camp, campers will gain a deeper perspective on the impact of computer scientists and software engineers on society.

  • interactive learning approach
  • simplification of complex topics
  • problem solving and design-based thinking
  • hands-on activities and/or experiment
  • connecting topics to society
  • counsellors demonstrate excellence in engineering and science, strong leadership skills, past experience working with youth, and enthusiasm towards education
