Summer Camp for Kids who Code

Friday, May 27, 2016 Leave a Comment

Is your kiddo a budding coder? CodeSpire is offering summer camps in Lowry during July and August for 6th-9th graders. Early bird discounts still available!

Be more than a consumer - be a creator and a maker! Kids will code and create:
  • Apps
  • Games
  • Robot controllers
  • Circuitry
  • Internet of Things (IoT)

2016 Summer Camps:

Intro to Coding— Week 1
We will explore multiple computer coding languages, creating unique projects as we learn.

We will explore the similarities and differences between different coding languages, learn elements of coding design, and discover which applications to use for best uses. Some that we will explore: AppShed, Arduino, JavaScript, Mindstorms, Python, Scratch. Students will also engage in off computer physical activities and hands-on peripherals to explore coding concepts.

July 18-22, Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-4:00 pm, Activity #CS101
Aug 1-5, Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-4:00 pm, Activity #CS201

Coding— Deep Dive —Week 2
Students will move deeper into different languages explored in Week 1, and develop more sophisticated applications uniquely suited to different program languages.

Students will work on unique student projects, with presentations at completion of the class. Completed projects will be posted on the CodeSpire.org website at the completion of class.

July 25-29, Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-4:00 pm, Activity #CS102
Aug 8-12, Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-4:00 pm, Activity #CS202

Camps will focus on coding – with lots of time for hands-on activities away from the computer screen. Campers will work with robots, circuit boards, apps for phones – all ways to put coding into practice! We’ll get a little time outdoors each day weather permitting – and do physical games that promote coding while burning off a little energy! Breaks for snacks and stretching will be interspersed throughout the day.
