Tennessee Code Academy has four computer programming workshops scheduled for students ages 12 to 18 this month, with two in Knoxville and two in Oak Ridge.
The first two workshops in Knoxville will be hosted at the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center on October 13 and 14.
Tech 20/20 will host two workshops in Oak Ridge on October 16 and 17.
These workshops will focus on web design and the Python programming language, a press release said.
“Students will learn all they need to know to develop creative websites,” the release said.
Students will also learn the basics of Python. Python is a programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more effectively. Google, NASA and YouTube use Python. Python is a great language for teaching programming, both at the introductory level and in more advanced courses, the release said.
“TN Code Academy is changing lives and putting students on a path for success,” said Sammy Lowdermilk, program director for TN Code Academy. “With fun and engaging programs that encourage collaboration and creativity, we help students increase their digital literacy by teaching them how to navigate the Internet’s vast resources and build integrated platforms. As a result, our Tennessee students will have a head start in a competitive and dynamic job market.”
Students may apply for the workshops at www.tncodeacademy.com. Lunch is provided each day.
