Coding for Kids | July 4-7: Game Makers with Scratch,Beginners -summer camp
Kids learn the elements of a cool video game – such as game structure, character design and stimulating sound – and then create their own game using Scratch, an introductory programming language created by MIT and used by millions of budding programmers worldwide. Workshop Details This week-long program is a great introduction to the fundamentals of coding. Kids create interactive video games that build upon their math and critical thinking skills, and feature super heros and pop culture characters like American Girl, Harry Potter, Star Wars and more. PRICE: 0 per week. No HST. DATES: July 4 – July 7, 2017. No class Monday, July 3 (Happy Canada Day! 🙂 TIMES: 9 – 4pm. Extended care (4-5:30pm) is available for /day, paid seperately. Please email sheri@codezillakids.com for info. REQUIREMENTS: Kids may bring their own laptop. Otherwise, laptop provided by Codezilla. CURRICULUM: includes Basic and Advanced content to ensure that all kids progress according to their abilities. Why Should Kids Code? CODING IS A SUPER SKILL: Instead of simply playing a video game, kids learn how to create a video game! This helps build their confidence, technical skills, and perseverance (grit) to succeed.   CODING HELPS WITH MATH: Coding uses math skills like logic, patterns, sequences and coordinates — and it's more engaging than workbooks or tutoring programs. CODING LEADS TO JOB OPPORTUNITIES: there will be +1M well-paying and unfilled computing jobs by 2020, yet less than 3% of degrees are in computer science.  Who Is This Workshop For?  Beginner/Intermediate Level – No prior coding experience required.   FAQs   What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? CSI Annex is a short 3 minute walk from Bauthurst TTC. There are many Green P and street parking options in the area.   What can I bring into the event? Please bring a nut-free lunch, 2 snacks and water bottle. Children may bring their own laptop (otherwise one will be provided by Codezilla).    How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Questions? Just email sheri@codezillakids.com   What's the refund policy? All sales are final, thank you.
