2 Summer Camp Sessions:

Ages 11 – 16

Session 1: Coding/Programming – June 19th – 23rd, 9am to 2pm daily
Camp cost is $395 and space is limited BOOK HERE

Camp Info: Join us for an exciting week of game design. We will be using Javascript and HTML5 to create a multiplayer web-based game. Along the way we will build up our knowledge of JavaScript and learn about servers and how data flows on the internet.

We will be introduced to: Multiplayer design principles, so we know what code to put on the server, and what code to put on the client. The HTML5 Canvas, which allows us to draw and manipulate graphics. WebSockets, which provides us a fast, two-way communication channel between the server and client. NodeJS, a server side implementation of JavaScript, allowing us to connect multiple players to the same game and much more.

At the end of the camp: you will have a better understanding on how multiplayer games work, and the skills required to create one.

 

Session 2: Electronics/Arduino – July 10th – 14th, 9am to 2pm daily
Camp cost is $465 (includes project build materials!) BOOK HERE

Camp Info: In this week long program, we will be introduced to the basics of electronics and Arduino. Starting with components like resistors, capacitors, and diodes. Then moving onto more advanced ones such as transistors, integrated circuits, and Adruino microcontrollers. We will finish up the week with a project build incorporating all the components we encountered along the way. The project, Arduino and a handful of components will be yours to keep and further explore on your own.

We will be introduced to: Resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors, integrated circuits and the Arduino. Programming the Arduino microcontroller using the Arduino IDE. Using sensors, switches, and servos to interact with the world around us. 3D printing and laser cutting, and how they can be used to enhance our electronic projects and much more.
