Coding Camp

Coding Camp is a hands-on experience where students will learn how to code using Scratch. Students will be provided laptops to use and will work individually and in small groups to complete challenges that build together to complete a coded story or game. The atmosphere of camp will be one of collaboration where students will collaborate on projects and provide each other with feedback and suggestions for improving their creations. This camp is designed to promote and motivate students to explore computational thinking and problem-solving strategies through coding challenges. The week will conclude with a symposium where students will share their projects and experiences. After lunch each day, the campers will participate in a variety of activities not related to computers.

Recommended: access to an email or a pre-made Scratch account to log in to.
