Code Camp 2016

CODE CAMP 2016

The final project from a 2014 Scratch camper

Code Camp : An Introduction to Computer Programming for Ages 9-14
In this camp, students will learn computer programming concepts by using the icon-based programming language, Scratch. Developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Lifelong Learning Kindergarten Group, Scratch allows users to design real-life animations, games, and various other interactions.

This program requires a more in-depth understanding of web-based applications and has many more “parts” to learn than the simplified Lego® WeDo software. This class will focus on creating animations, discovering computer “bugs” and making simple games and interactions utilizing Scratch. Ages 9 -14 (or previous WeDo® class experience).

Returning campers (or advanced students) can expect a more challenging curriculum where we recreate classic video games to learn more in-depth programming concepts.
