Opportunities to introduce your child to STEM education has become easier with the increased attention those areas have received over the years. Programs that promote an interest in science, math, engineering and technology have been the answer for children who already have a love for those subjects. They have also sparked an interest in children who once thought they were not good in one or all of those subjects.

The Coding Kids is offering its one-day Python Coding Camp on two days in Jackson. The camp will introduce children, ages eight to 16, to Python – a high-level programming language. Python was created in 1991 and is one of the coding languages behind what you see when you visit popular websites like Google, Yahoo! and Wikipedia. In this interactive coding camp for beginners, your children will code using Python and create Strings, If-Else Statements, Loops and more. Students will learn real programming with no short-cuts or abbreviated coding. The only perquisite to attend the camp is the ability to “read, write and type (albeit slowly) without tears“. Let your children take advantage of a day of learning and most definitely fun.

All students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the Python coding camp.
