First Time Coders is the perfect camp for 6-8 year-olds that are eager to learn to code. This age-appropriate class will animate your student’s mind and get them excited about coding by teaching them to build their own games! In this block-based programming camp, we will use animation software and basic coding to develop a video game unique to each student’s imagination. Students will work on computers with a block command syntax, learning how to build characters and backgrounds, animate actions, levels, timers, interactions with characters, and more. Software varies, including several programs that build incrementally on students’ prior experience and knowledge. Challenge your student to create a game that even you can’t beat, and bring the learning home!

Robotics – Beginning:
Robots used may include Edisons, Ozobots, and/or Sphero
Great beginning robotics experience for the youngest students. Students work with a variety of robots as their skills increase. They will scan barcode programs with the Edisons, using light sensors to follow lines, detect & avoid obstacles, or play bumper cars! Learn how to command with colors, to make a robot speed up, spin, start or stop, and follow specific colors using the Ozobots.
Learning is extended with all robots by using computers to begin building their own custom programs using block codes. Coding is more visually designed to enable beginning readers to also start programming their robot to perform their own unique plans. This is an excellent robotics course for the beginner, to learn how robots react, and how to control them with autonomous commands.
Course may include Edisons, Ozobots, Sphero robots, depending on skills progression.
