About This Activity

Explore the Force “I am one with the Force, the Force is with me.” In this camp, we will take on the challenge of undergoing the Jedi Trials – learning to work our way out of sticky situations, control our minds (and others’) and create our own full size lightsabers to take home! This STEAM-based exploration takes us from the lavas of Mustafar to the icy wastes of Hoth, and will call upon our team-building and problem-solving skills as we use lasers, coding, robots, dry ice, and chemistry to, save Han Solo, program droids, and design secret missions. Once we have the skills needed to navigate the galaxy, we will gain the rank of Jedi Knight. Friday is costume day, and will will have an opportunity to showcase our engineering in front of a green screen and get a picture on any planet in the galaxy! Scratch Stories & Games You're never too young to start coding! This camp introduces younger campers to key computer science concepts through unplugged activities and the magical drag-and-drop block-based coding language, Scratch 3.0. Learn basic coding concepts by using Scratch to design simple animations and games, and re-mix existing programs found in the Scratch gallery. We'll create stories in which characters interact with and respond to each other, and learn how we can control our stories and games with objects in our physical environment.
