Coding Camp

Member $125 | Non-member $185

  • Jan 3–7
  •   PM


Campers will learn the fundamentals of computer science in the Python programming language—one of the most accessible and popular languages in both industry and research (even NASA uses it!). Kids will learn to code by making music using a program developed by Georgia Tech called EarSketch. At the end of the week, parents are invited to attend a code/music show, where your kids will show off all their hard work and sick beats!
