Looking to build your own mobile app or website? Want to learn the basics to create video games or the next great invention? This intensive three week program looks to develop the basic skills necessary to make it in the world of computer programming.

Get a head start as you learn computer programming in Python and JavaScript. Students must bring their own laptop for class. The laptop must run either macOS or Windows. iPads, Chromebooks, or other tablets that run mobile operating systems cannot be used.
