Learn to think like a programmer, and have something to show for it! We will be using the Python programming language and its turtle graphics library to create shapes, spirals, fractals, and more, all without needing to touch a mouse or paintbrush.

This one-day class will go over the basics of programming, even if you've never touched code before. Or, if you're already a master of Scratch (other languages are available), explore the powerful concept of recursion.

Python is available as a free download for all computers, so you can continue at home. It is suggested to bring a USB drive to save your projects.
