TURTLE on TUESDAYS is a three week series of classes introducing students to the basics of python through a graphics package called turtle.

WHAT: Students will be introduced to the foundational concepts of programming in python including commands, colors, variables, random, and loops. The opportunity is free as part of our effort to keep kids engaged and learning. We do however, ask that you make a commitment to virtually join us at all three classes. We are not able to catch up a student who misses one of the dates.

  • Tuesday, April 28 – 10:00 – 10:40
  • Tuesday, May 5 – 10:00 – 10:40
  • Tuesday, May 12 – 10:00 -10:40

WHO: We invite students in grades 4 through 8. Please keep in mind that we are not block coding and a student must type with attention to detail. Some Upper Elementary students are ready for this challenge and others might find it frustrating. Please consider your student’s focus before signing up to join us.

WHAT YOU NEED: You will need a laptop or iPad that is able to program in python. If you are using an iPad, you will need to download the Pythonista 3 app which costs $9.99. On a computer running Windows or IOS, you can download Mu for free. We will send along the directions.

SIGN UP: There is no cost to join us, but we do need an email address to get organized and your student’s name and grade to prepare our lessons appropriately.
