The LEAGUE Tech Club

The LEAGUE Tech Club runs free and low cost  introductory technology classes at schools, libraries, rec centers and companies all over San Diego County, giving San Diego students an opportunity to explore their interests in programming, robotics and electronics.

Introduction to Python Programming

Introduction to Java Programming

Robotics and Microcontrollers


Each Tech Club class is about an hour long and introduces students to basic programming concepts such as functions, loops and variables.

Python. This introduction to Python starts with simple Turtle graphics, but also covers the core aspects of programming, including variables, loops and functions. Students finish the class writing real programs in the world’s most popular programming language. This class is suitable for students as young as 4th grade.

Java. Java is also one of the most popular languages, and it’s the language used in AP Computer Science and  FIRST Robotics. This class starts students with both a professional programming language and professional development tools, including GitHub and Visual Studio Code. This class will be most interesting to students 6th grade and older.

Micro:bit Microcontrollers and Robotics. Micro:bit is a tiny computer that kids can program to display images, play music and send messages. The Micro:bit can be programmed in Block language, Python or Javascript, making the class fun and engaging for all levels

Javascript. Our Javascript class is similar to our Java class, but uses a simpler online programming environment, so it teaches all of the same concepts, but without the extra component of professional development tools.
