Projects will include creating simple games using buttons and sensors on the microprocessor board, creating art and music using speakers and LEDs attached to the board, and even using the board as the “brain” for a small robot and remote control system that we will use in various challenges and competitions.
At the end of the week, campers will bring all of their projects, including the robot, home with them so that the fun and exploration can continue.computer at home.
This camp is for children ages 12-14.
Note: The picture above may not be representative of the robot campers will build.
A Few Details
What will kids take home?

- Critical thinking
- Teamwork and collaboration
- Sharing of ideas and resources
- Adapting to new challenges
Programming is a highly technical endeavor but it doesn't have to be boring. Our instructors make learning object-oriented programming easy, fun, and intuitive. Since campers are bringing home their own computer, the motivation to learn and code in Python is imbedded and strong.
Campers should have had some experience in coding - Scratch, Code.org, & Hour of Code are great starting blocks.
