Do you want to learn how to code with your students? How about a week of free instruction from programming professionals? Join us as we jumpstart computer programming education in Vermont.
Spaces are limited, and we're encouraging educators to sign up as teams with 2 students -- especially those teachers in a looping situation, or who already know which students they'll be working with next year.
This summer, we're proud to be able to offer three strands:
I. Introduction to programming with Ruby
Led by a professional Ruby programmer, this strand will introduce basic programming concepts as they're applied in the Ruby on Rails environment. You'll step through the pieces of a Rails environment and learn about loops, variables, inheritance, iterations and the full framework of object-oriented programming.
Interested in web programming? Sign up for this strand! Throughout the week, teachers and students will have the opportunity to learn HTML5 and CSS3 with Champlain College professor Sarah Pettit.
Scratch offers a fun, interactive introduction to programming. We will build interactive games (some involving motion-controlled technologies such as the Xbox Kinect and Wii).
**Please note: educators are encouraged to make plans to attend with their students, and preference will be given to traditionally under-represented populations in STEM.**
Lunch and snacks will be provided. Check-in starts at 8:30 each morning, programming starts at 9. At the conclusion of the camp, each attendee will receive a digital diploma (for their Mozilla Backpack or e-portfolio) and a commemorative t-shirt.
Any questions? Contact us directly. Otherwise, let's get coding!
