Coding Camp at Extreme STEAM Science Kids Camp
Computer Programming, or Coding, has been identified as essential skill for 21st century living. According to Douglas Rushkoff, Digital Literacy Advocate of CodeAcademy – the founders of the Hour of Code- “Code literacy is a requirement for participation in a digital world.” At Extreme STEAM Science Kids, we introduce students to coding both in our Robotics laboratory, as well as our coding room. Students will learn to develop an understanding of coding through the creation of:
- Digital Games and Stories
- Digital and Stop-Motion Animation
- Programming using Scratch, from M.I.T’s Media Lab
- Digital Blogs and Websites
NEW FOR 2016: MINECRAFT!
“…Minecraft is an open world that promotes creativity, collaboration, and problem solving.” Minecraft can also be used to teach different STEM subjects as well as art and poetry.
