Your camper will...
- Build grit, a growth mindset, and computational thinking through coding.
- Balance screen time with hands-on activities and opportunities to create and explore, even in their own living rooms.
- Discover and define their personal passions through STEM challenges and more.
- Make new friends near and far.
- Be challenged at their individual level.
Every camp session includes:
✓ Project-Based Coding
✓ Hands-On Activities
Campers take a break from their screens and discover the opportunities to create and explore that exist all around them, even in their own living rooms. The possibilities off screen are endless and will include: scavenger hunts, botany, cooking, science experiments, board games, TikTok dance parties, short story writing, and more.
There are so many STEM fields to explore. From game design and physics, to coding musical sequences and sounds effects, to animations and pixel art, campers will be exposed to a wide range of fascinating material designed to help them discover and define their passions.
✓ Daily Challenges
Which house can solve a riddle first? Come up with the best algorithm? Complete a puzzle? The winning house will be awarded points for the day and a chance to win the weekly Coding Space cup!
✓ The Coding Space Cup
Each week campers will team up to create an unforgettable week of exciting challenges. Dividing up into “houses” named after famous computer scientists, campers will learn more about the history of this revolutionary field, while engaging in friendly competitions to encourage collaboration, problem-solving, creativity, and grit.
Houses will collect points throughout the week based on such achievements as gong rings (how The Coding Space celebrates completed projects), riddle and algorithm solutions, physical activities, and more. The week’s winning house will claim the ultimate prize—The Coding Space Cup!
