      Events:
      We are currently offering an online Python course open to all middle and high school students. It is free to attend and will last 6 weeks. Each session of this event will occur every Saturday, starting on September 5, 2020 and ending on October 10, 2020, with a total of six sessions. Look below to find out about the different programs that will be offered, what will be taught, who are they opened to, and required prerequisites.

      Python For Beginner Coders
      Curriculum: Students will be taught the basics concepts of Python. This includes syntax, libraries, key vocabulary, printing statements, defining variables, defining functions, if/else decisions, while/for loops, taking and using input, mathematical operations, boolean, lists, tuples, etc. Students will also work on projects related to what they learn.
      Open to: Middle and high school students.
      Required Prerequisites: None.

      Our Program:
      Our program is designed to provide a computer science environment for all middle and high schoolers. The key aspects of our course include:
      Middle School and High School Oriented: This program is created for middle and high schoolers, and we made sure to make the course applicable to people of this age.
      Immediate Application: Not only are we focused on teaching computer science curriculum, but we are also focused on applying it. Throughout the program, participants will collectively work on a project to solve or help with a current-day problem or event.
      6-Week Long Course: One problem with many coding programs is the short duration of their course. Through our 6-week long course, we ensure a full understanding of the subject.
      Curriculum For All: People of all levels of coding experience are welcome to participate in our course. Our curriculum is designed to accommodate beginner, intermediate, and advanced coders.
      Speakers: Throughout the course, speakers who currently have or are pursuing a career in computer science will come and speak about their experience and answer some questions.
      Always 100% Free: The entirety of this course is completely free!

      Our Mission:
      We hope to break all minority barriers and provide the proper computer science environment for all middle and high schoolers. Through our 6-week long course, customized curriculum, and amazing teachers, we believe that any middle or high schooler will be set to take on a career in computer science.

      Background:
      Middle school and high school is arguably the most important time period of a student's educational career. This is the point in life where a student can explore career opportunities and find out what interests them most. However, according to Cullen White, the managing director of computer science at Teach for America, "Only one in four schools across the nation offer computer science courses." This means that 75% of middle and high school students are denied access to a proper computer science environment, and this, along with multiple minority problems, results in the loss of many potential students that could have been interested in the field. With so many barriers, how can we, as students, learn and explore computer science and see if it the right fit for us? We have planned the perfect program to introduce and nurture the computer science skills in all middle and high schoolers.
