Kids Code

Kids Code Camp explores the fundamental concepts behind the SCRATCH, JAVA (Minecraft), PYTHON, JAVA SCRIPT programming languages. Students will create, modify and test the forms, scripts and code that tell computers what to do by exploring variables and constant, graphical user interfaces and any other required industry knowledge that enables one to write programs in any computer language. Any student can be successful with the language. The program is structured to support students in a collaborative setting where problem solving and attention to detail is cultivated. Student excitement is heightened when they are able to apply programming to write their own codes and understand how popular PC games, like Skyrim, Mobile Apps are programmed. At the end of the camp you carry copies of your work home. Yours is showcased for trial at the Design Expo.
