Coding and Multi-Media Arts
In this YWCA summer camp, campers will be given opportunities to increase their skills and confidence in the use of technology and creative expression. They will utilize BitsBox online coding and programming tools to create their own apps that can be shared with friends and family. BitsBox will allow kids to animate objects and create mini-games – take your pet to the vet, play tic-tac-toe with a friend on another device, and create a virtual ant farm for your critter friends! Students will also have the opportunity to create projects with Hour of Code. When not in the lab, campers will be doing hands-on art activities, creating their own multi-media projects and learning how to use digital cameras and Photoshop. The camp includes time in the computer lab, interactive games, hands-on art projects, outdoor recess, and an outdoor photo safari.
Appropriate for ages 8-12, boys and girls welcomed.
