Is your child curious about robots? Loves animation? TechVenture’s Code Camp Jr. provides young children with a fun introduction to technology. Using Scratch Jr, children learn to program their own interactive stories on a tablet computer. Taking it a step further, children partner together to work with Wonder’s Robots, programming their bots to put on a dance party, navigate paths and more. In the process, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively. Girls and boys love the thrill of coding and controlling their environment. Don’t worry, kids don’t spend the whole time plugged in. Engaging unplugged activities get kid’s bodies moving too.
TechVenture’s Games and Robots code camp is a mash-up of programming digital games and robots! How cool is that? Students practice computer programming with MIT’s Scratch and Wonder’s Robots. They learn to design and program a classic top-down or platform game, combined with programming robot challenges like guessing a secret code and a launcher competition. While collaborating with partners, students develop skills in reasoning, math, and problem-solving. They gain confidence as they solve coding challenges. Also, unplugged activities keep kid’s bodies and minds engaged.
Do you love to play Minecraft? Tinkering or creating things, in the real or virtual world? In this TechVenture camp, kids learn the basics of coding Mods in a Minecraft world; and practice hands-on tinkering with circuits to build simple inventions. How cool is that? Students take their ideas from concept to design to results, exercising their minds in critical thinking and problem solving. This camp combines the thrilling world of engineering with the challenge of writing code!
Do you have an artistic eye? Curious how to make an animation? TechVenture’s Photography & Coding Camp provides an exciting mix of arts and computer science. Kids learn to take great photos and use them to tell a story in their own coded animations. This project-based camp features outdoor excursions, collaborative photo shoots, and hands-on editing.. Students learn to shoot and edit digital photographs, bringing them to life in animated stories they program in MIT’s Scratch coding platform.
