Event description

Description


What if your child spent their summer learning to make apps instead of playing them? This camp, designed for 10-15-year-old students, introduces the fundamentals of coding. Students will create websites, mobile apps, and video games all while having fun with our energetic team.


By the end of the week, each student will have built at least one web page, app, and video game using programming languages like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Arduino w/ C++, and Unity 3D w/ C#. The camp is kept small to ensure everyone gets focused attention and learns at their pace.


More than just coding - Week of Code boosts creativity, logical thinking skills, and brain power! In addition to programming time inside, campers will interact with our upbeat team for unplugged activities and games. Week of Code is a blend of computer programming, problem-solving, and teamwork!


In this course, your student will:

  • Create a video game, website, and a mobile app in one week
  • Build a foundation of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Android, C#, Unity 3D
  • Think like a computer with logic and gates
  • Analyze how programs work and how code functions
  • Develop computational thinking skills


Your student will take home:

  • Project files and portfolio


If your summer plans change, you can make unlimited updates to your registration—with no fees—up to 4 weeks before your start date.
