Learn how to speak the language of computers! Campers will dive into the exciting world of computer coding through Scratch, developed at MIT. Scratch is a block-based application designed to make it simple for anyone to learn programming. Throughout the camp, coders create projects like an epic space battle game or a choose your own adventure story! The possibilities to create are endless! We'll also occasionally use other applications like MC Edit (Minecraft-related) based on student interest and aptitude. This is a beginner block based coding program.
Why just play Minecraft when you can create Minecraft? In this camp designed for quick learners or those with block-based coding experience, campers will learn how to code in Java by making a mod for Minecraft! This is professional, text-based coding. Create and then craft a sword out of mushy bananas, or spawn a flying golden cow! Make the full transition from player to content creator! This is an Intermediate Java text-based coding program.
