Technology Camps

Virtually all aspects of our lives involve computers and demand for programmers is predicted to increase by up to 32% in just the next 5 years. Virtually all academic and professional careers will involve some level of coding and programming skills. Technology companies recruit people according to technical, coding and programming skills. We believe in academically preparing your child for this future -- and programming skills are as essential as they come.

6th Grade and Up - Learn to Code IOT

Information

In this class, you will learn how to program electronic components in an IOT ( internet of things ). We will cover programming via the arduino processor to control switches, dials, lights and other external sensors and devices. The 5 day camp will alternate between instruction and hands-on projects. On Friday, students will present and explain how the features and functions of one of their projects created during the week, parents are welcome to join us for the final presentations.

This camp provides the foundation in computer programming logic, programming interfaces to electronics and component assembly. The camp consists of training in logical programming structures and building four Arduino based projects including the computer code, the Arduino processor, bread board and basic IOT lights, buzzers, servo motors and electronics. All components are connected with jumper wires, there is no soldering.
This camp is offered three times during the summer camp season:
July 17-24, 2017
July 27-Aug 4, 2017
August 7-11, 2017

Days:5 Full Days5 Half Days

Plus an Arduino processor and components kit for $59 that students keep

6th Grade and Up - Learn to Code - HTML/CSS

Information

HTML and CSS form the foundation of the internet. Every modern web page is coded and formatted with these two languages, from the most basic to the most complex. Students can see instant results and there are no logic loops or functions so they make a great introduction to programming. All students will research a topic of their choosing and then design and build a website which will be hosted online at our Student Web site.

This camp focuses on building a webpage. Students will begin in the Codecademy curriculum while they learn the basics and then move on to an independent editor to build their own page. The camp will cover paragraphs and headings, links, images, lists, and formatting including fonts, colors, dividers, margins, and tabs.
Weekly: June 26 - August 11, 2017

MIT Scratch - Intro to Code

Information

MIT built Scratch to teach programming to children. It features drag-and-drop code, sprite graphic animations, and open source project files that allow students to explore the inner workings of programs they enjoy.

Scratch is a fully-functional programming language, complete with logic, loops, comparisons, variables, and input output. We will begin by making objects move around the screen and then move on to animation, collision, and keyboard controls. At the end of the week, your child will take home their own project.
