Digital Story-Telling & Animation (Ages 6-8) - NEW!

Uses Scratch, Tynker, Blockly or similar block programming platforms. 

In this course, tailored for the younger student, we will use various digital and media technologies to help explore the art of story-telling.  Through various games, challenges and exercises, we will introduce the students to tools that can help unscrew the cork to their pent-up creativity.  Whether they are Block Programming with Scratch, or using Apple's kid-friendly media tools, your child will be coming home each day inspired by the power of their own imagination.

Computer Game Design (Ages 9-11) - NEW!

Uses Scratch, Swift Playgrounds or similar platforms.

Game Development is a fun, creative approach that naturally encourages children to test their skills, stamina, and focus using unfamiliar technology.  In this course children get to experience what it's like to design an original video game, including the storyline, artwork, and gameplay mechanics.  They then get to challenge each other in a gaming bonanza with their own creations.

Mobile App Development (Ages 12-16) - NEW!

Uses modern techniques to code and publish apps.

Today, a major portion of application development is being done for mobile devices, such as phones and tablets.  What does it take to make a Mobile App, as opposed to delivering a traditional desktop application? This course teaches children about these differences and the techniques required to publish Mobile Apps.

 

We have ample equipment for everyone, so please do not send your child to camp with a computer or tablet.
