This beginner level camp is designed for kids with little to no programming experience and will use Scratch, Tynker, and Python. Campers will start with the basics and explore the essential building blocks behind object-oriented programing through creating fun, interactive stories, and simple games. Campers will create animated stories and games, learning programming concepts in 3 different languages (Scratch, Tynker, and Python) while developing a foundation of computational thinking - an essential skill in today's tech-driven world. We break up the day with supervised outside play, sports, and activities. Kids think creatively and learn how to program their own stories, games, and animations, as well as how to share their creations on the web. Take home a copy of your own games at the end of the class.
