In this workshop, students will learn various formal techniques that coders use to make their programs more efficient. Over the four days students will learn to: use abstract data structures, search and sort data in lists and analyze which sorting methods are more or less efficient than others. All programs will be written in Python. Entering grades 7–12
Over the course of two weeks, students will learn how to develop both 2D and 3D games using the Unity engine. Not only will students learn to code games using C#, they will also use Unity’s intuitive user interface to adjust just about anything in their games from lighting to game physics, to character animations. After getting comfortable with C# and building various mini-projects, students will conclude the two weeks by developing a final project of their very own. Entering Grades 7–12
