Coding Day Camp
July 11 @ 9:00 am - July 14 @ 4:00 pm$230.00 - $250.00
Expanding on our popular coding workshops, we’re offering a 4-day summer day camp in computer coding. Registration is open now for the camp taking place Tuesday July 11th through Friday July 14th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the bookstore on Merrimon Avenue.
This is a wonderful introduction to coding for kids led by Lisa Sellers, who taught this very popular class at UNCA’s Super Saturday program. Using the Parallax Scribbler Robot, kids learn the basic logic behind computer coding and program the robot to follow orders — to draw, follow lines, flash LEDs, avoid objects, follow a flashlight, and play sounds. If time allows we may explore additional programming languages like Scratch and Logo. Laptops will be available for student use, but students are welcome to bring their own if they have one and would be more comfortable using it. (Requires laptop, not tablet, and must be PC, not Mac.)
Pre-registration is required to attend, and it’s for rising 3rd- to 5th-graders only. Enrollment is limited to ten students to ensure plenty of time for individual attention. The cost is $250/student with $20 discount for siblings. ($250 first student, $230 for sibling.) You will not be considered registered until your payment is completed. A full refund is available if you cancel by the end of the day June 27, 2017 (two weeks prior to session). Otherwise, only a partial refund of $100 per student will be available.
You should pack a water bottle, snack, and lunch for your child. Drop off is 8:50-9:00 a.m. and pick-up is 4:00-4:10 p.m. When you register and pay, we’ll send you a form to sign regarding policies, emergency contact information, etc.
