Creative Coding Level 3 - Python Bootcamp

Join our top-level coders for a Python Bootcamp!

Classes are held Monday to Friday, 10 am - 4 pm

Course Description

Favoured by both academic institutions and industry, Python is one of the most commonly used programming languages, and your aspiring programmer can get a jump start on their mastery with our Python Bootcamp! Combining touch-typing, logic, code, and lots of creativity, this camp will prepare your child with the mindset of a programmer and the skills to succeed in Python.

Campers will develop their own games from start to finish; from writing their own code, adding animations to bring it to life. While building these, children will get creative with coding concepts like loops, algorithms,  functions, structures, and physics. This course will challenge both children who have used Python in the past and those who have not because we will be focusing more on writing own own code without instructions (to see the limitless creations that can be done with code!)

Throughout the course, campers will create complex games, develop programming skills, and learn computing concepts that will prepare them better for GCSEs.

Topics Covered in Python Bootcamp

- Fundamentals of Python

- Advanced coding concepts like loops, variables, conditionals, and functions

- Algorithm design and development

- Intermediate robotics with Microbit

- Introduction to making games

Prerequisites

This is an advanced course for students aged 10 – 13. Students should have sufficient experience using different coding languages; however,  experience using Python is not essential.

Outcomes and Achievements

Our teachers will actively record your child’s work throughout the camp and share it with you through Class Dojo. This is an app which allows you to see photos of your child’s work, be involved in your child’s progress and message the teachers directly if you have any questions. The children will also receive a certificate of completion on the final day.

Outdoors

All our camps have time for play! All our campers will be given time to play outside everyday, weather and location permitting. Our campers can participate in a variety of activities like football, tag, or just playing out!

Staff

All of our coding teachers are highly qualified and thoroughly vetted by DBS checks. Many of our teachers have Master’s degrees in Computing from top universities. We have working relationships with local London institutions, such as Goldsmith’s, University of London, who recommend their top students to us as teachers.

Our staff are also vetted, and at each camp, we have a staff member who is Emergency First Aid certified.

Safety

We want all blue{shift} campers to have an enjoyable and safe experience. For the safety of  all campers, disruptive, rude, or bullying behaviour will not be permitted or tolerated at blue{shift} creative coding camps.

Blue{shift} and our staff are not responsible for any valuables brought to a camp by the student or parent.  

Other Information

We have laptops available to rent for the day or for the week. If you are interested, please order during checkout.  

‘Early drop off‘ at 9 am available every day! Your child can have peer play between 9 am - 10 am before camp officially begins.

Fees do not include lunch. Students should bring a packed lunch with them (no nuts please!) We will provide a snack and water during the day.
