Camps for Ages 6-8

2018 Camp Offerings

for Ages 6-8

June 4-8 - Intro to Coding Level 1

Campers will learn to program using a wide range of coding platforms including Lego WeDo Robotics, Dash and Dot Robotics, and one of the most popular video game software packages available - developed by the engineers at MIT. This camp employs a split day format where campers get to spend the morning learning programming skills, and the afternoon is spent completing cooperative Minecraft challenges.

June 11-15- Intro to Coding Level 2

Campers will expand their knowledge of coding using robotics and by creating their own video games using one of the most popular video game software packages available - developed by the engineers at MIT. This camp employs a split day format where campers get to spend the morning learning/practicing programming skills, and the afternoon is spent completing cooperative Minecraft challenges.

June 18-22 - Maker Camp

This camp is for kids who like to make interesting, artistic, and technical inventions! We will make a variety of amazing projects that move, draw, fly, grab, and most of all make kids think.

June 25-29 - Lego WeDo Robotics

Campers will complete a series of challenges which require engineering, creativity, and imagination to solve problems using the LEGO WeDo robotics kits. WeDo helps teach how technology plays an active role in the students' everyday life and is an ideal product for teaching across different subjects at primary levels such as Literacy, Science, Mathematics, Technology and Engineering. This camp employs a split day format where campers get to spend the morning learning robotics and coding skills, and the afternoon is spent completing cooperative Minecraft challenges.

July 2-6 - Jr. Robotics

It’s never too early for kids to learn programming and building skills! Our Jr. Robotics Camp will give 6 and 7 year old campers the opportunity to make simple robots perform complicated tasks in a fun and challenging way.  The week will focus on learning to program by using block-based coding languages to get their robots to complete a variety of missions. By the end of the week, campers will be creating their own challenges.

July 30-August 3 - Intro to Robotics using mBot Robots

Each camper will build their own mBot – a fun but powerful robot with motors, sensors, and the ability to be programmed using the Scratch programming language from MIT (the same language we use in our Video Game Programming I and II camps). Campers will bring their robot home at the end of the camp.Young Makers will learn to program their robots to move and to react to its surroundings using light and distance sensors. Children will learn by completing a series of fun challenges that will allow them to teach their ‘bot to do surprisingly complex things.

Why Programming or Robotics for ages 6-8?

These courses are part building and part programming. Your children love building things. They love using tools and making things work. In these camps your children will have ample opportunity to build, repair, and rebuild. Then they get to program!

Programming is a highly technical endeavor but it doesn't have to be boring. Our instructors make learning programming easy, fun, and intuitive. Your children will practice story telling, storyboarding, problem solving and creativity.

Computer Programming is the language that will separate your children from the rest.
