In this advanced coding camp, students nine or above extend their knowledge and skills of coding with the block-based visual programming language, Scratch. In each session of this 14-hour camp, students deepen their knowledge of computer science basics with focus given to analysis, logic and interfaces. Students will also be introduced to augmented and virtual reality, creating Scratch projects that incorporate live video and hand gestures. Each session of camp includes overview of computer science vocabulary and principles, unplugged activities and hands-on projects. Students will also take part in digital citizenship discussions as well as physical activities and snacks between projects.
Your $95 registration includes use of computers and accessories, all materials, snacks, drinks and camp souvenirs. Registration for this camp is through Valley Community Center's online camp system.
