Course Overview

So you’ve spent some time learning to program in Python and now want to take a much deeper dive into how to use Python to solve specific programming challenges? That’s where our new Teen Coding with Python – Build Amazing Projects course comes in. The course is structured so that you’ll get to spend a full day on each of the topics getting to grips with some of the common use cases for the Python programming language.

Over the course of a week, you’ll spend a day learning how to build websites using the Flask web framework that is used by Netflix, Uber and Lyft to power parts of their infrastructure. A day learning how to build desktop apps using a professional-grade GUI library. Then you’ll move on to look at how Python is used in Data Science and Machine Learning, before spending a further day building video games using the Pyglet library. Finally, you’ll get a chance to hack on a project of your own devising based on one of the topics you’ve covered earlier in the week.

Whether you dream of building the next million-pound start-up, working at Facebook or Google, or becoming a Data Scientist, this course will give you a valuable skill to build a rewarding career in whatever field you choose. 

The course will assume all students have at least a familiarity with Object-Oriented Programming and will give you the opportunity to develop this more fully by solving real world problems. If you’re interested in studying Computer Science to A Level and beyond or are just fascinated by programming this course will help you extend your knowledge further.

Fire Tech Camp was a great experience and the best camp I've ever been to. I think the camp does a great job in combining fun with learning.
