The Coder School Berkeley: New Online Summer Coding Camps Just Added!
We have just added some NEW Online Summer Coding Camps in the month of June, while we are operating our Safer at Home Online Summer Camps. We currently have space in these following camps:
- Python Art (Ages 10+, June 15-19): Did you know Python doesn't just output text and numbers, it can make visual art too? In Python Art Camp, we'll deep-dive into the visual turtle library to make some gnarly, sometimes hypnotic designs and illustrations. In this camp, we will see how Python code can also be beautiful. For beginners and intermediate coders alike.
- Games Are Awesome C (Ages 8-10, June 22-26): We'll be using cool drag n' drop languages like Scratch or Snap to create some awesome new and classic games! Aimed at our newbie and novice coders. Content will be different from Games Are Awesome A and B.
- Control Freak (Ages 10+, June 22-26): Controlling stuff can be serious fun! Get an introduction to micro-controllers and learn to code LED lights, sensors, buttons, motors and more! Each camper will receive a micro:bit micro-controller kit (that they get to keep) which includes a bunch of accessories that will work with any computer. Designed for intermediate coders.
- Roblox Reboot (Ages 10+, June 29-July3): Using the Lua coding language, learn to make real games on the popular Roblox platform. Campers will use their creativity to build their own game that they can publish and allow the world to play! Windows or MacOS computer required. Designed for intermediate coders.
These camps will run from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm Mon-Fri with a 1-hour lunch break at home from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. Our Online Summer Camps will be a mixture of working on a week-long coding project, coding challenges, Kahoot! quizzes, tech talks, small group collaboration with breakout rooms, interactive games, exercise and screen-free breaks and of course, the chance for campers to present their projects to their fellow campers on the last day of camp! Campers will be required to have the following minimum technology available at home:
- Windows PC, Apple/Mac, or Chromebook (or similar) computer
- Internet connection of at least 15 Mbps (most homes support at least this speed)
- Microphone/Speakers - Many computers have a built-in microphone/speakers that should work
- A video/web camera connected to your computer allows us to see your child and coach them better based on their reactions
