Ages 5-8

Scratch JR

Young children will be introduced to the world of coding through playful, interactive lessons. Using tools like Scratch JR, they’ll create their own animations and simple games, all while developing foundational programming skills.

Each task is designed to be age-appropriate, encouraging creativity and logical thinking without overwhelming them.

Kids will gain confidence in their abilities, learn to solve problems, and experience the joy of bringing their ideas to life through code.

Ages 8-10

Scratch

This group will dive deeper into coding with Scratch, building more complex projects that require higher levels of critical thinking and problem-solving.

As they progress, students will encounter new programming concepts like control structures and variables, which will push their skills further.

They’ll enhance their analytical abilities, learn to collaborate on projects, and develop a deeper understanding of how coding works.

Ages 11-13

Advanced Scratch and Robotics

Older campers will tackle advanced topics in Scratch, robotics, and even Python.

These activities are designed to be intellectually stimulating, introducing them to advanced coding techniques and real-world applications.

Students will strengthen their logical reasoning, improve their coding proficiency, and prepare for high school-level computer science courses.
