TWO NEW COURSES IN COMPUTER CODING - Four weeks - $995.  An in-class computer will be provided.  Taught by Peddie math department and Robotics faculty, Mark Sawula.

Learn Programming through Creative Coding
Be inspired to learn the fundamentals of computer coding through a series of playful yet rigorous creative coding sketches.  Use visual patterns to understand abstract concepts.  Use fun to persevere through the hard parts. Programming topics include iteration, conditionals, classes/objects, and simple data structures.  Students will use Python to create geometric designs, mash-up images, visualize music, and create maps.  Beginners are welcome!
Course will meet two enrichment periods in the morning and can be paired with another enrichment course.

Learn Programming by Making Music
Learn the basics of programming and using code to remix music.  Create your own songs by mixing beats and samples collected by Young Guru (engineer for Jay-Z) and Richard Devine (electronic musician and sound designer) or use your own. Programming topics include iteration, conditionals, and simple data structures.  Students will use Python to create music as well as music visualizations. The program enviroment is EarSketch which was developed by a team at Georgia Tech with support from the National Science Foundation.  Beginners are welcome!
Course will meet in the afternoon from 1-3PM and can be paired with any of our morning courses.
