Gleneagles GOLF COURSE

Looking for things to do for kids in West Vancouver? Well, you are in the right place. Our West Vancouver Camps are great for kids and youth interested in getting the most out of their seasonal breaks. 

ALL OF OUR STEM SUMMER CAMPS ARE:

Taught & led by engineers and designers experienced at teaching

Carefully developed to offer the most fun learning experience possible

Offered in a place near you. Located in Gleneagles Golf Course

AUG 23- SEP 03

TIME: 9:30 am - 3:30 p.m.

AGES: 7-9

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.

ACTIVITIES:

- Design and 3D print your own light-up toy

- Build and code a Nite Lite Project using Arduino

- Bridge-building competition

- Create animations using digital tools and clay

 

HERE'S WHAT WE WILL BE LEARNING - Electronic Fundamentals: Source, Load, Loop

- Coding Fundamentals: Instructions, Statements, conditionals, if/else

- Structural Fundamentals: Force, Pressure, Weight

- Animation Fundamentals: Frames, Animation, Frame Rate, Ease-in & Ease-out, Squash & Stretch

TOPICS Coding, 3D Design & 3D Printing, Animation, and Electronics. Hurry up, only a few seats are available

TIME: 9:30 am - 3:30 p.m.

AGES: 7-9

STEAM SAMPLER - BUILD YOUR OWN LED NIGHT LIGHT

TIME: 9:30 am - 3:30 p.m.
