In this camp, we're going to dive into the Python programming language, a great first text-based coding language that is simple to learn and use.  We'll kick off with some basics, and then explore ways to use Python in daily life to solve problems and make the world a better place with some project-based learning. Prerequisite: knowledge of basic algebra.

Thinking about taking AP Computer Science at school? This is a great introduction!

Our Rackspace instructor has got you covered!
