What is the Summer Coding Academy?

The Summer Coding Academy is a one week course designed to teach high school students the essentials of coding and design in a world where technology dominates every field. Students will learn basic computer science concepts through explorations in Scratch and other programming languages, such as Python and Java. Your students will also learn how to make their own websites and mobile web applications using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. Students also have the option to join us for a third week during which they will build their own final project using the skills learned in the first two weeks of the program. This program is taught by Harvard undergraduates who go through our rigorous application and training processes.


Brief Overview

WHO: ANY high school students interested in learning to code!

WHAT: Summer Coding Academy is a two-week program (with an optional add-on week to build a final project) taught by Harvard undergraduates designed to teach high school students the essentials of computer science in a world where technology dominates every field.

WHEN: The program will run from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday.

            Session I: 7/9/18 - 7/20/18

            Session II: 8/6/18 - 8/17/17 

WHERE: Northwest Building Computer Lab (52 Oxford St, Cambridge, MA 02138)

WHY: You will learn basic computer science concepts such as variables, conditionals and loops by coding your own games in Scratch. Then you'll learn how to make super cool projects in Java and Python using more advanced data structures (like arrays and classes) and algorithms for searching and sorting. Finally you'll learn how to make your own websites and mobile web applications using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. For the optional week you'll have the opportunity to create your own final projects using anything you learned during the program.
