ROBOTICS, CODING & STOPMOTION

Creative computer coding fun and learning with a variety of tools including online coding puzzles, hands-on coding games, storytelling, crafting & creating, and programmable robots.

 

The focus is fun, perseverance, creativity, teamwork, and developing new skills.

Students will gain an understanding of computers “under the hood”, and explore algorithms, sequencing, loops, conditionals, bugs, and debugging using simplified drag-and-drop block coding. They will also learn the basics of stop motion animation with a mini film project. 

Our DMP Summer Camp is full of activities for curious STEAM (Science, Technology, Arts, and Mathematics) learners.  Most activities come in stages that cascade on top of each other following our philosophy of Design, Make, and Play.
