Young Video Game Maker
Cost: $295/week (Full Day)
Campers will be using a software program from MIT called Scratch. The program was designed for children, and teaches them the basics of programing as they create animated stories, video games, and interactive artwork.
Using colorful programming blocks, campers drag and “snap” together the blocks to make a character (Sprite) walk, speak, play music, or interact with other sprites.
Since computer programming is considered the new literacy, young people now have an opportunity to put together multimedia programs without any previous programming knowledge. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically.
*Formerly known as Camp Jr. Video Game Maker
*Campers will need to bring a USB drive to camp
Registration closes at 11:59pm Friday before this camp begins. For late registrations, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Late registration fee of $20 will apply.
