Design with Python

Virtual delivery
Ages 14 to 17 (high school grades)


In-person options available (Ages 14 to 17) 

Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, used by scientists, engineers, hobbyists, and everyone in between! Participants will be introduced to the basic concepts of the Python programming language by completing fun coding challenges! This basic knowledge will prepare them for any future coding classes or coding languages they want to learn. No coding experience is required!

Activity example: UI Creation - Participants will use Python to create a User Interface for an existing program, so that any user can easily interact with the program without producing errors.

  • interactive learning approach
  • simplification of complex topics
  • problem solving and design-based thinking
  • hands-on activities and/or experiment

Some adult support (or support from an older sibling) will be needed to start the daily session for younger campers. Counsellors will then provide the support during the camp activities.
