Scratch Game Design- $275/session
8:30 – 11:30 AM
Monday, March 25th – Friday, March 29th

In this camp we’ll learn to make animations and games using Scratch, a free, online programming tool designed by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at MIT with over thirty five million users worldwide. Participants will learn real programming concepts such as logic, variables, and loops. Campers will also work on idea sharing and giving good feedback as the class collaborates to improve games and generate new ideas!

This camp is suitable for computer programming novices as well as those who already have familiarity with Scratch. The class is structured to include whole-class instruction, independent work time, one-on-one teacher check ins and peer review and sharing.

Microbit Makerspace – $275/session
1:00 – 4:00 PM
Monday, March 25th – Friday, March 29th
The microbit is a teeny tiny computer you can easily program and use to create projects. In this camp, we will will learn to program, use inputs (Buttons, GPS, Shake, Sound, resistance, light), and outputs (LED, display, motor control, sound) to make projects like: wearable tech, robotic pets, high-tech board games, and custom game controllers.
Microbit Makerspace is suitable for all levels of experience.
