Driving Dash & Dot Robots with Code

Code Dash & Dot robots- two friendly bots that love to complete missions. Experiment with measurement, sensors, and tons of abilities to achieve badges throughout our session.

Children that attend this session will learn coding concepts through a block-based coding language called Blockly. This is a visual coding language that is rooted in Javascript code. Beginning coders will become proficient in the Blockly language as they learn the fundamentals of coding: sequences, algorithms, loops, events, conditionals, functions, and variables.

Bloxels Video Game Design

Design a high-tech, interactive video game with Bloxels!

Campers will create and design their very own video game(s) using the Bloxels game creation platform! Bloxels is "a hands-on platform for kids to build, collaborate, and tell stories through video game creation." Please have your camper download the Bloxels EDU app here, and create his/ her own account before the first day of camp.
