    Note: There are no classes on holidays No experience needed! This class is a great first step for beginner students in Computer Science. The goal of this course is to give students a comfortable introduction to coding and give them the confidence to learn more in future classes. Python is used extensively in most industries and is the standard language for Artificial Intelligence. We recommend this class to all STEM majors! In this introductory Python Computer Science Skills course, students will gain hands-on experience writing and executing Python programs. The class is designed to teach Python coding and computer science skills in a relatively small class setting in order to offer students the support they need to fully understand concepts that may elude them in a larger classroom setting. HIGHLY recommended taking class before taking CS courses at your school. If you're interested in or planning on enrolling in computer science classes, this experience will give you a huge advantage and head start. Students Will: - Learn Python coding basics - Learn essential skills needed for our more advanced coding and Artificial Intelligence classes This course teaches the foundations of computer science and basic programming, with an emphasis on helping students develop logical thinking and problem solving skills. Each unit ends with a comprehensive unit test that assesses student's mastery of the material from that unit. This is the perfect place to start learning Python! BENEFITS: =========== - Small class size = more attention - Students may improve their GPA by taking this class prior to taking it at their school or in college. - Improve your college application - Enhanced experience overall - Opportunities for professional development - Improve job opportunities
