codemakers photoCODEMAKERS™ offers Intro, Intermediate, and Advanced Python programming courses to teens ages 13 and older. ​

We teach programming much the same way colleges do - by using Python to develop conceptual and technical skills that are easily transferable to other programming languages. ​​

Eight of the top 10 computer science departments in the U.S. (including MIT) now use Python rather than Java or C++ to teach basic computer programming.

Our courses are taught by Boston area computer science majors and grad students, with teaching assistance provided by Belmont High School students.

CODEMAKERS™ is staffed at all times by programmer-instructors ready to answer coding questions, lead games, challenges and special events, and supervise social activities.

CODEMAKERS™ monthly membership includes all course materials, team projects, gaming events, drop-in hours, and social gatherings. ​

Our week-long Summer Camp (morning or afternoon) covers the full Intro to Python course:

Level I - Strings / Variables / Loops / Conditional Statements
Level II - Random Functions / List Comprehensions
Level III - Standard Library Functions / Building Functions
Level IV - Objects and Classes / Selection Sort / Binary Search
Coders also practice their skills working on familiar games and new challenges:

Level II - Scrabble Scores, Basic Combat, Dragon
Level III - Bird Bingo, Plinko, Yahtzee, Monte Carlo Simulation
Level IV - Adventure Game, Racing Simulator, Population Simulator
