This will be a mini version of both the Scratch on the Web Camp & our Maker Camp.
Join us for two days of analog logic games and guided exploration of MIT’s Scratch program.
On Monday and Tuesday, campers will learn to code and make their own games in this popular language. Each day will also feature analog deductive reasoning exercises and even some experiences in either robotics, VR, art, or electronics.
For the next three days, campers will construct circuits, learn to solder, and build an original electronic creation to take-home.
Throughout the week, we will also collaborate on one large group project. For this particular camp’s project, we will design, create, and build a cardboard city – complete with lights, sounds, buildings, streets, people and animals.
Camp is best for girls and boys who are six through twelve years old. Camp is for “beginners,” but we will be glad to have more experienced campers attend and act as “helpers” or get some support in more advanced projects.
We will provide tablets/laptops, but campers are welcome to bring their own, too. Attendees are encouraged to bring in old, broken and/or useless electronic components, recyclables, and project ideas.
Please note that we are currently located in the West End area of Downtown Dallas (you will not have to park, as we offer curbside pick-up/drop-off every day). Snacks and water provided; campers should bring a bag lunch.
