Garden City, NY
Program Runs from Monday, February 17th thru Friday, February 21st, 2014.
Join kidOYO Instructors in partnership with The Cradle of Aviation for this exciting 5 Day Winter Break event:
kidOYO focuses on introducing children at a very early age to computer science and engineering through hands-on learning projects integrated with computational problem solving challenges.
In this unique "Kids Learning Code" program aimed at students aged 9-13, we will be introducing students to the mechanics of computational problem solving for any number of student-interest driven outcomes. Students interested in gaining computational thinking skills, learning to create computer programmed games, imagine interactive and animated stories, or prototype ideas generated from their imaginations using tools such as micro-circuits and the wildly popular 3D sandbox Minecraft will be among peers in this exciting and unique program. We will introduce kids 9-13 to creative tools that let their imaginations explore and pursure outcomes in a social context unlike anything else. Here, kids own their own education.
Students will receive a kidOYO USB flash drive and a kidOYO Tshirt.
kidOYO produces innovative entrepreneurial ed-tech programs for students and teachers in multiple settings and formats. In-school K-12 programs, after-school programs, professional development programs, library programs, University-based programs, online-only programs, summer camps and monthly clubs offer many ways of getting involved with kidOYO.
Leadership sets kidOYO apart; our team is composed of professional toy and technology developers and entrepreneurs who do what they teach, and bring real world context to the programs they develop to get students learning by doing.
