Summer Camp Curriculum

Our curriculum is our typical Panda Programmer curriculum, which consists of the following topics:

Scratch JR

Scratch Jr is a great introduction to block programming and logical thinking for our younger students (typically grades 2 and below) to get the knack of programming. These younger students do not need to type in order to master the topic

Scratch

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and website targeted primarily at children to help learn code. Users of the site can create online projects using a block-like interface. The service is developed by the MIT Media Lab, has been translated into 70+ languages, and is used in most parts of the world. It is fully a “real programming language” and features variables, boolean logic, functions, operators, and powerful graphics capabilities

Advanced Scratch

Advanced Scratch continues the Scratch curriculum to build upon previous lessons to create a solid programming foundation. It continues to explore kids creativity in creating bigger and better games, introducing more concepts such as functions and implementation of physics.

Robots 

Coding and computer science is challenging and fun, but when our students use their programming skills to control physical machines like robots, their sense of accomplishment reaches entirely new levels.

Python   

Python is a high-level and general-purpose programming language. Python’s design philosophy emphasizes code readability and efficiency. Python is the programming language of choice for many professional computer programmers

JavaScript/HTML

 Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language for documents designed to be displayed in a web browser. JavaScript is a scripting language used to create and control dynamic website content, including animated graphics and interactive forms
