Summer 2024

Coding Classes for Teens - Newton MA

Best Summer STEM program since 2017
1223 Centre St, Newton Center 

What can teens learn in 2 weeks?

The lessons will cover the following concepts in Java or Python
1. Variables, Data Types
2. Functions
3. Conditionals (if/then)
4. Loops (definite & indefinite)
5. Data Structure (arrays, lists, dictionaries)
6. Object Oriented Programming: classes, methods, inheritance

Can they use what they learned?

Students can use Java to build Android mobile apps.
With Python, students will learn how to use it for data analysis. 
Both projects can be part of a high school students' portfolio to showcase for colleges.  




Do you have to be proficient in coding to be a CIT?

Not at all.  While it would certainly be helpful if CITs have prior experience with coding and robotics, they will be asked to undergo training in basic coding and robotics with Penguin Coding School classes prior to the summer. This knowledge will be reinforced by helping younger children in those skills during the summer program.  


Is there a cost to this program?

Yes, this program is an educational opportunity for the student, not employment.  The tuition for the program is reflected in the listing for each location, and follows the same discount/refund/cancellation policy for the general summer program.  

Can anyone be a CIT?

We welcome anyone who is between the ages of 13 - 15 and is able to participate in all the activities we offer during the summer sessions. We also reserve the right to refuse to accept a participant who the staff determine would be detrimental to the overall success of the summer programs. We would issue a full tuition refund in such cases.
