Description

It's time to sign up for Home Hacker Camp 2019! The last three years of camp were very successful and we are excited to be expanding again in our fourth year! We offer Level 1, Level 2 & Level 3 (Advanced) camps for youth in 5th - 12th grades! Our computer science camps are fun, engaging and hands on taking you through mechanical engineering > computer science & programming > testing/reworking > output/product.

Our mission is to expose, educate and start a strong foundation in critical STEM skills for youth in a fun and engaging way.

Camp Dates 2019

Level 1

In Level 1 camps we build robots and use the computer programming language Scratch to "train" the robot to perform specific tasks (like chase your cat or dog) and complete challenges. We learn about programming logic, loops, conditional statements and more. We work with both visual programming and command line programming. We lean how to upload the programs to our computerized robots. In addition to the robot, we will be building and programming a sound reactive "Disco Dot" - an Arduino based sensor project. Soldering & programming are key components of the project.

Level 2

Level 2 Home Hackers take their programming skills to the next level. We program the robots to use advanced sensor technology to avoid obstacles and follow specific programming rules.
