Multi-Media Block Coding

Calling on any crafty kids who are interested in making and coding. Block coding is software that uses drag and drop “blocks” which interconnect to create computer programs. This course is designed to be a hands-on, interactive introduction into the world of computer programming and technology. They will create highly interactive solutions using popular educational programs like MIT’s Scratch and Carnegie Mellon University’s Alice. Our campers will be empowered as collaborators to solve challenging problems. Ultimately, we will bring code to life by building and programming IoT hardware such as robots, smart devices, augmented reality apps and much more. By utilizing block coding, we give kids a leg up in the fundamentals of programming.

No Prerequisites Required.Students are encouraged to bring a pen/pencil as well as a notebook to the program

Introduction to Programming: Python

This course is designed to be a gentle introduction to basic programming concepts, such as algorithms, syntax, loops, and variables. The campers will be exposed to the highly popular programming language known as Python. Students will type real Python that encourage trial-and-error, critical thinking, and creativity. They will have to apply critical thinking with coding puzzles that are naturally scaffolded into increasingly challenging problems. The campers will also be encouraged to showcase their creativity by building and sharing their programs. There will be opportunities for students to collaborate when they get stuck. Coding requires kids to practice new forms of communication, including communicating with the computer itself and conveying their ideas using the most efficient code. Students then apply the coding skills they’ve learned by developing their own scripts and programs in an interactive project-based environment.

No Prerequisites Required.Students are encouraged to bring a pen/pencil as well as a notebook to the program

JavaScript - Web application development

This course is designed for students looking to dive into the realm of World Wide Web. Using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS; students will construct interactive web pages. In addition, students will be exposed to tools and concepts such as Google Analytics, Search Engine Optimization, and the full life cycle of web development. Students of all different interests will benefit greatly as technical students and visually creative students work together on projects that help them build communication and collaborative skills, all while each student doing what he/she loves most.

Augmented Reality: Code the world around you

The Internet has proven to be not only one of the greatest technological achievements of the late 20th century, but also the driving force. Web designers and developers have become known as the architects of the web. During this summer camp learn to build quick,modern web applications and responsive websites. We will cover languages like HTML to structure our websites and CSS for all the styling. These are the foundation of all websites. We will also discuss more advanced features such as CSS3 and media queries, and the new HTML5 tags, in order to create a dynamic and creative website full of your personality.

Developing Apps for iOS and Android

You’re probably already aware of how popular mobile apps are. Mobile applications are becoming increasingly important to our consumption of media, news, social interaction, and learning. In this course, students will learn how to create mobile apps using the wide array of tools available to them. We will discuss the various technology used to develop a Native Mobile App, at times required to code by text. Campers will also examine what it means to be a good digital citizen, modeling safe and ethical behavior including citing their sources, moderating their digital profile footprint and protecting their online information. Campers will understand what it takes to develop a mobile application from conception to production.
