Course Overview

Campers tackle a variety of exciting challenges: controlling robots, designing mobile apps, bringing funky animations to life, building original games.  Students move from the basics of coding, design and user experience (UX) to the point where they can imagine and build out their own ideas. At the end of the course, each student decides which topic they wish to pursue further and spends one day diving deeper to complete 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.
