CODEMAKERS offers Intro, Intermediate, and Advanced Python programming courses to teens ages 14 and older. We teach programming much the same way colleges do - by using Python to develop conceptual and technical skills that are easily transferable to other programming languages. 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. To see how we teach computer programming, please download a free sample of our Intro to Python course materials.
CODEMAKERS is staffed at all times by programmer-instructors ready to answer coding questions, lead games, challenges and special events, and supervise social activities, all of which is included with membership.
