TWO CAMPS IN ONE! CODE & CREATE: In this exciting introduction to coding and game building, you can make absolutely anything happen with the power of Tynker and its physics engine, expansive media gallery, and art studio. Drag and drop real code blocks to make your creation come to life! In this course, kids learn through guided play in an exploratory and encouraging lab environment. We emphasize pressure-free creativity, with a focus on discovery and fun. Tynker is easy for kids to use, and the interface gives young students a taste of the endless possibilities of programming. VIDEO & WRITING CAMP: Improve your writing skills while learning to write, produce and edit your own broadcast. Campers will create a writing portfolio as well as produce their own ‘end of camp’ video. They will learn how to prepare and conduct on camera interviews. Finally, campers will learn digital editing skills they can apply to their project work in school. Every camper will have an opportunity to be “talent” and work both in front of the camera and behind the scenes as part of this experience (based on their comfort level). This camp is educational and FUN! Each week, we go off-site on a trip and incorporate elements of our off site activities into our production work. Weekly trips include bowling, amusement parks, the museum, a LIVE broadcast studio and swimming.
