Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Introduction to Python for Students Who Are Blind or Have Low Vision: August 16 to 19, 2022

The use of technology is key in our daily lives and an ever-growing career path for students who are blind or have low vision. Introduction to Python, a class offered virtually and in person by Our Space Our Place (OSOP) from August 16 to August 19, 2022 from 2 to 5 pm Eastern Time (ET), will teach basic computer programming using Python as the language. Python, a “general-purpose programming language,” allows users to “work quickly and integrate systems,” with a design that focuses on the readability of the computer program code. In the class, students ages ten and older will go from learning about installing Python to the basic principles of the system to building a hands-on project. No previous programming knowledge is required. Students are expected to be familiar with using screen readers.
