Camp at a Glance

This exciting programming camp provides you with an introduction to coding and gives you an understanding of how computer coding works through the use of both “drag and drop” tools and Javascript. The camp uses a combination of programming tools, including Minecraft EDU and other game-based software that let you play and code at the same time. Ultimately, you can take on the role of a mighty hero who can cast spells and build worlds. However, to wield your magic you need to learn how to write computer code. No prior experience necessary. All skill levels are welcome.
