Coding Summer Camp

Alexandria, Louisiana—The City of Alexandria Community Services Department has partnered with local teacher Emily Swenson to offer a coding camp for beginners ages 12 to 15.
Why learn coding? Well, first of all it’s fun and challenging. It can be exciting to learn to create web sites, mobile apps or desktop programs. But even if you don’t want to become a programmer for a living, it’s still worth your time to learn how to write code, because if computers are at all a part of your life, then learning to write code is going to improve your life.
The camp will be held from 8 a.m. to noon each day from Monday, June 12, 2017, through Thursday, June 15, 2017, at Martin Community Center, 2301 Mill St. in Alexandria.
The cost is $45 and registration is limited to 20 students. Each student will have the use of a Pi-TopCEED throughout the day to learn the basics of coding.
Various breakfast foods will be available before camp begins.
The curriculum includes basic coding, Raspberry Pi computing and Linux basics.
