COST: FREE

Don't miss your chance to have fun experimenting, designing, and testing with experts in the field!

Monday: Introduction to Coding

Our first exploration of electronics, coding, and computer science! Snap Circuits, the Hour of Code, a coding choose your own adventure, and inventing with littleBits are all parts of this diverse day.

Tuesday: Robotics Day

Today is the first day of the week where we work closely with various robots like Dash and Cue! In addition, we will get a chance to design 3D printed works like a veterinarian, and have fun with a crazy electronic unit called Backyard Brains.

Wednesday: LEGO Mindstorms Day

One of our favorite days is LEGO Mindstorms day! We delve into the unique way LEGO coding works and the campers will build their own robots for our challenges. If you can think it, you can build it!

Thursday: littleBits Day

We’ve organized multiple activities using cool electronics from littleBits today! The inventive controller MakeyMakey, the #STEAM dream Codekits, and the famous Arduino all make an appearance in the affectionately named, littleBits day.

Friday: Artificial Intelligence

Our final day is packed with computer science concepts like Artificial Intelligence and facial recognition with robots like Cozmo, and doing advanced coding in Processing which campers are encouraged to expand on with free tutorials and libraries!
