Coding Skills from Game Making

Campers learn coding while designing games with Scratch, a visual programming language with a menu of instructions to choose from.  Campers code with variables, loops, conditionals, and functions. Scratch allows students to experiment with coding before they move on to text-based languages like Python.

Campers learn how to power LEGO projects with an electric motor, battery pack and gears.  They learn the engineering to create movement for projects as well as advanced design skills for characters and vehicles.
