About This Activity

In this two week texploration, campers will learn computational design using p5js, the popular web-based version of programming language Processing. Processing was originally developed at MIT to encourage technologists to use the tools of artists and designers, and to give artists and designers new tools for creativity. Participants will learn how to do basic web design and will code dynamic artworks on their own website. Computational Design with p5js is appropriate for both absolute beginners and intermediate coders, and will offer an age-appropriate blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities and explorations designed to get campers coding from day 1! Campers will begin each day with a morning meeting that will introduce them to new aspects of the programming language before venturing out on their own to try out their new skills. They will collaborate with peers and instructors both online and offline to bring their projects to life. Late-morning, students will have the option to participate in a live, half-hour movement time with Baker PE teacher, Ms. Chase. At the end of each day campers will join a closing meeting where they can further develop their ideas, troubleshoot, and share their progress. Our instructors, Baker’s own Ms. Moira and technology whiz Mr. Pritle, will be available to support campers during their daily independent work time to ensure that each camper has what they need to make their projects a success. Tech Requirements: this camp requires participants to have access to a laptop or desktop computer, internet connectivity, and the most recent Google Chrome update. Please contact summer@bakerdemschool.org if you have questions about required technology.
