All About Us

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 in a relaxed and fun environment and gradually build the technical skills needed to develop their own projects and games. Coders also work on robotics projects to develop and apply their programming skills.

Our courses are taught by computer science majors and grad students, with teaching assistance provided by high school students.  ​

PROGRAMMER INSTRUCTORS

We are looking for Programmer Instructors to teach Python during the school year (Sept 2019 - June 2020) and in our Summer Camp in 2020.  ​Minimum of two years of college-level Python coding experience required.  Computer science majors and graduate students are encouraged to apply!  

ACTIVITY LEADERS

We are looking for high school Activity Leaders to help manage our coding and game space in Belmont Center.  In exchange for a few hours of work per week, you will be able to take our Introductory Python course series (4 workshops) for free.  You must be a junior or senior in high school and feel comfortable guiding kids and teens in games and social activities.
