python coding for teens 13+
CODEMAKERS teaches introductory, intermediate, and advanced Python programming courses to teens 13+ in the Boston area. We teach programming much the same way colleges do - no dragging and dropping, no fixing code to generate preset outcomes. From the beginning, our coders learn the core principles of programming and gradually build the technical skills needed to develop their own projects and games.
Eight of the top 10 computer science departments in the U.S. (including MIT) now use Python rather than Java or C++ to teach basic computer programming. Our courses are taught by Boston area computer science majors and grad students, with teaching assistance provided by Belmont High School students. Maximum class size: 6 coders.
We introduce key concepts through short (~10 minute) videos at the start of each workshop.

We have games like foosball, ping pong and a vintage arcade along with board games and Magic: The Gathering events. You can join us for Magic Night, Video Game Night or Hack Night, or just invite friends and hang out for a while.
While you're here, consider registering for our Intro to Python course or try a Python workshop.
CODEMAKERS is staffed by programmer-instructors and teaching assistants ready to answer coding questions, lead games, challenges, and special events, and supervise social activities.
high school apprenticeships
We are looking for Teaching Apprentices interested in coding to train and work at CODEMAKERS! If you are a high school junior or senior, you can go through our training program in exchange for working part-time at our coding and social / gaming space in Belmont Center.
