Get ready to figure out the why, how and wow of computer programming in this interactive coding camp! The camp explores many aspects of gaming, both on and off the computer. Using MIT’s Scratch computer language, kids learn how to program their very own unique games and animations. In addition, campers apply problem-solving strategies to create offline, traditional games such as checkers, labyrinth, and the electrified board game "Operation"! All camper projects are theirs for the taking, whether it's a computer program uploaded to MIT's website or an original board game to be played at home with friends. No previous programming experience is required. Note: To fully enjoy their experience with Scratch, campers must be able to read on a first grade level or better.
