Coding with Kids: Little Coders

  • June 14-16, 2017 9:00am – 12:00pm
  • Prerequisites: None
  • Coder’s Ladder experience: Little Coders / Pre-coding Level
  • $165

Our Little Coders camp is an opportunity for young children to develop their computational thinking skills, build their first programs, and have fun with new friends! The curriculum is designed specifically for early readers and takes into account cognitive abilities as well as attention span typical for ages 5-7. Students are introduced to basic coding concepts in a variety of ways, from playing coding board games like Robot Turtles to programming their first games or interactive stories. We will use age appropriate on-line tools, including code.org, Lightbot, Kodable, and/or Scratch. (maximum 20 students)

Coding with Kids: Game Development – Beginner / Intermediate

  • Ages 8-15
  • June 14-16, 2017 9:00am – 12:00pm
  • Prerequisites: None
  • Coder’s Ladder experience: Level 1
  • $165

In the Game Development camp, our tech-savvy instructors will introduce students to the core coding concepts at the heart of computer science. They will guide small groups of campers in creating an interactive story and/or a game of their own using the block-based, online programming language Scratch. Children come to camp with a variety of backgrounds and beginner skill levels (from no experience to self-study of Scratch to some previous exposure to coding), so campers receive personalized instruction and progress at a pace that ensures they’re appropriately challenged. Camps are also a great opportunity to meet and learn from new friends! At the conclusion of the camp, children will be able to share projects with family and friends and continue programming at home with their Coding with Kids Scratch account.   (maximum 20 students)
