Description

15 Weeks of Learning!

 

Weeks 1-6: codeSpark Academy

Learn to code and make video games with CodeSpark Academy, a Kid Coder friendly coding platform that is:

"-Completely word-free

-Based on research backed curriculum from MIT and Princeton

-Self-directed - no experience required."

 

Weeks 7- 10: Root Robot Coding

Have a Roomba- Robotic Vacuum? Then, your child must learn how to code Root!

Through coding Root, Kid Coders will be introduced to a visual programming language that will progress from Level 1, a visual programming language to Root’s Level 3 coding language “Level 3 allows Kid Coders to solve problems and learn the syntax and structure of professional coding languages in Swift.”

Kid Coders will practice coding in a fun and laid back learning environment that will allow the ability to explore and expand on coding capabilities! 

 

Find out more about Root here: https://root.irobot.com/

 

Weeks 11- 16: Video Game Design with Bloxels & codeSpark 

Design a high-tech, interactive video game with codeSpark (K-1) or Bloxels (grades 2-5)!

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.

 

Check out their site here: https://edu.bloxelsbuilder.com/. Your child will be ecstatic to share the games that they created! 

Registration period

Registration for this schedule starts on 07/19/2020 and ends on 02/03/2021.

15 Weeks of Learning!

 

Weeks 1-6: Ozobot Robot Coding

Code your very own Ozobot Evo- that you could get to keep! 

Learn to code with the awesome Ozobot Evo! Evo gets kids coding and loving robots with the stroke of a marker. Customize, code with colors, and advance to OzoBlockly, a block-based coding language that teaches kid coders the fundamentals of coding through learning sequences, algorithms, loops, events, conditionals, functions, and variables. Complete Ozobot challenges and competitions, all while learning how to code! Choose the option to have Kids Can Code purchase your robot for, and take your Ozobot home with you to keep the coding fun going all year! Otherwise, use Kids Can Code's loaner robots throughout the entire session!

 

Weeks 7- 10: Osmo Game Coding

Explore the world of Awbie while coding with the Osmo, or write your own song with Osmo Coding Jam! 

Osmo is a device that is "crafted with reflective artificial intelligence" that allows students to connect with code in their physical environment. There are three coding apps that this camp will focus on: Coding, Coding Jam, and Coding Duo. Each game provides physical coding blocks so that players can interact directly with their code. Kid Coders will learn logic and problem solving skills, while discovering algorithms, loops, and variables! Find out more about Osmo here: https://www.playosmo.com/en/coding/.  

 

Weeks 11- 15: 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.

Registration period

Registration for this schedule starts on 07/19/2020 and ends on 05/05/2021.

Restrictions

Participants must be entering grades kindergarten to 5.

Description

Need a little extra time after school? Have your Kid Coder spend Thursday afternoons with us!

Pay in full, or pay monthly!

Click on the sessions above to find out what we will be doing. Each session covers different tools or topics. Coding concepts learned in one session can be applied to different robots or programs. Sessions can also be attended individually, with no background knowledge necessary! 

Immerse your child in the latest technology to learn the basics of computer and robotics programming. Our instructor is former Saint Johns County Teacher of the Year- Lauren Wade, who knows how to engage campers of all ages and abilities... differentiating learning for every Kid Coder.

You will be amazed at what your child can do! 

Bring Your Own Device! iPads preferred, but most tablets will work! *Please contact Ms. Lauren at lauren@kidscancodejax.com if your child needs to use a loaner device. We do not want anyone to miss out on this opportunity because of lack of technology! 

Registration fee of $20 is non-refundable. Session payment due on start date. Prorated for late registrations.
