Junior Coder

Course Overview

Campers tackle a variety of exciting projects while gaining insight and experience into many aspects and functions of computer coding. Each day introduces a new, relevant and creative topic – robotics, mobile apps, animation, games – which takes campers from the basics in that field to the point where they can design and build their own ideas. At the end of the course, each student decides which topic they wish to pursue further and spends one day gaining expertise and creating an original project specific to that area.

This course exposes campers to a variety of tools and techniques that will enhance their understanding of programming and design, allowing them to continue their journey into code at home. A perfect starter course, Junior Coder allows children to delve into different areas and find out which parts of the world of computer science excite and inspire them the most.
