A full day camp for our youngest tech enthusiasts. Campers will enjoy working with block coding for non-readers and a wide variety of robots this week. Morning, lunch and afternoon play breaks -outdoors when possible.
MORNINGS: Do you like games, stories and animations? Then it’s time to experience TechVenture’s Code Camp Junior, where young campers are introduced to the thrill of creating animated stories and controlling robots using code. Coding gives children the ability to understand how to “tinker” and shape their digital world. Engaged in multiple activities each day, campers experience using platforms like Scratch Jr, CodeSpark and Wonder Robots. They create their own interactive stories on tablet computers and work together programming robots to dance, navigate paths and more. They focus on sequencing, and problem-solving while they play and explore. Unplugged activities complement technology learning, reinforcing concepts. Daily snack/play breaks keep kids’ minds and bodies moving. All equipment provided.
AFTERNOONS: Is your child curious about robots? Robots are a fantastic tool for engaging kids in understanding technology. TechVenture’s Code-a-Bot Junior Camp combines robots with coding to ignite children’s imaginations & build confidence in how they look at the world and approach problems. This camp is all about hands-on time for kids to design, build and code a variety of lively robots including Wonder, Lego WeDo and Ozobot. Young learners use creativity when customizing their own solutions to several robot challenges, developing their skills in reasoning, math, creativity and problem-solving. Engaging unplugged activities with daily snack/play breaks keep minds and bodies active and moving.
