    Campers will learn to about the concepts of computer programming using Scratch. Scratch is a language developed by MIT to teach younger children programming using visual images. Students will learn fundamental programming concepts like variables, loops and conditionals.
    3-6th Grade
    Campers will build and program Lego Mindstorms Robots in a team of up to 3 to perform tasks like Mars Pickup and Sumo Wars Bot fights. Programming Robots to use sensors and motors to interact with the environment, and skills like problem solving, design, test and creativity will all come into play during this week-long camp. More about Lego here. The beginner week assumes no previous experience while the advanced week is for those who may have used Mindstorms before.

    4-6th Grade
    Have you ever seen interesting images online and wondered how they were made? This is your chance to take your own pictures and then edit them, change and style them yourself. Learn the techniques that graphic designers use to create the images we see every day. Campers will use photo editing software to retouch and edit digital images and their own photos. Awaken the digital artist in you!

    The idea of this camp is to serve those who may already know the basics of programming and are looking for the next step. This would be perfect if you’ve done a camp with us last year, though it is not necessary. The very basics will be quickly reviewed so there will be more time for advanced topics which may include algorithms and some data structures.
    7-10th Grade
    Have a fun filled week with board games. Learn to play different board games every day of the week. The instructors will teach you how to play and win a game. You will play Transamerica, Clue, Hoppers and many more. If you like rolling dice and having fun in a team, you will love our “Rolling the Dice” day. How about a 1000 piece puzzle you can work on during some much deserved down time?
    We are going to have a Sudoku competition, so bring your friends and form a team. Sharpen your reasoning/analytical skills and take home a prize!

    Campers will learn the basics of data science: starting from the idea, then going into the practice of collecting data, storing data in a computer, continuing with data analysis, and finishing with the discussion and visualization of results.
    6-9th Grade
    Campers will learn to create a webpage and program it with HTML and CSS while also learning more about how the internet works. This week includes topics about internet privacy and examines the characteristics of good web pages. There will be an emphasis on iterative problem solving all week.
