Description

Join us for a fun week exploring computer coding! 

Love iPads and computers? Want to learn how their programs work? Then this camp is for you! Work through levels on https://codespark.com/ to discover the fundamentals of computer programming. Explore additional coding tools such as the augmented reality coding game “Osmo Coding,” as well as robots that run on code, like Dash, Root, and Ozobot. This camp will introduce students to a variety of tools in order to expose students to all of the different avenues coding can open! 

Children that attend this camp 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.

 

Returning campers will continue to explore and build on their previous knowledge.

 

Kid Coders should bring their own mobile devices. App requirements will be emailed after registration.

Registration period
