We start by familiarizing all campers with the subject in focus with mini and quick projects, nothing too serious at this point. Campers get to meet each other, make friendships that will become helpful bonds throughout the week. By the end of day one, campers will have the big picture of the week in mind and feel ready to take on the rest of the week.
Code Maker Camp
Use MIT’s Scratch program and Micro:bit to design and create games, animations, and simulated robots. This camp will bring together the essential concepts of computer science, design technology, science, art, math, music, sports, and dance to create a comprehensive foundation knowledge for campers as they enter the world of coding and robotics. Campers will learn to use all sorts of materials to build technology and program them using the mircro:bit controller and Scratch all in a visual programming platform. This camp is available only as a full-day camp.
This camp runs Monday – Friday from 9 am – 3:00 pm. For extended hours, before-care (8 am-9 am) and after-care (3:30 pm-6 pm) may be purchased at an additional cost during checkout.
Campers begin to explore a wide range of concepts around the theme of the camp. They learn from our expert tutors through guided practice as they start to get a grasp of the curriculum. By the end of day two, campers will be ready for more hands-on activities on day three.
Campers begin to partner up with each other to implement the concepts learned so far. Campers are presented with more challenging projects and encouraged to collaborate to solve complex problems. By the end of day three, campers are ready to begin to develop original ideas for the capstone project.
Campers will start to develop, design, and implement their project ideas. They are encouraged to take the lead and come up with initiatives based on all they have learned throughout the week. By the end of day four, campers are ready for their final presentation.
The atmosphere is already beaming with excitement and curiosity at this point as campers get ready to make final presentations to demonstrate their knowledge and mastery of the concepts learned throughout the week.
