Game and Application Development in JavaScript

July 3 - 7 (no camp on July 4th)Morning July 17 - 21 Morning with 3D Design & Printing

Campers build multiple interactive games and applications as they learn one of the most powerful web scripting languages. This camp will give them a real world flavor of what goes behind many of the web applications they experience in their daily lives. Plus they will leave the camp with enough knowledge to continue their learning at home in their path to become independent programmers.

Beginner Friendly where students build simple Applications and Games involving animations using x-y coordinates, collision detection, timers, scoring, levels. Code Encryption/decryption algorithms as they learn about cyber security and secure messaging.

Technical Concepts
  • Document Object model
  • Manipulating Color, Size, Background, Images, Shapes
  • Simple, conditional, and nested loops
  • Function definition and Function calls


Robotics & Coding

July 10 - 14 Morning with Advanced Scratch Video Games       July 31 - August 4 | Morning with Mobile Apps

Code and solve numerous logical challenges, obstacle courses with the Lego EV3 Mindstorm, Lego Robot Inventor, mBots, Ozobots.

A technology program that blends Coding with Hardware with a focus on iterative learning. A machine's reaction to code is not always consistent and students learn how to improvise and manage around machine imperfections when extracting desired behavior through Code.

Students learn about multiple sensors including touch, color, distance, gyro and integrate them to create multiple simulations like the robotic vacuum, color code driven navigation, accelerating and decelerating car, and much much more.

A free form camp for beginners and advanced programmers to learn the fundamentals and complex algorithms of robotics and developing innovative movements, applications and solutions to challenges. Campers can expect challenges they have never seen before that can only be solved using their keen Vulcan sense of logic and programming prowess. Challenges include those expected in tournaments like FLL, etc.

Technical Concepts: mBots
  • Coding for controlling motors and distance sensors.
  • Solve multiple challenges like robotic vacuum, obstacle avoidance, optimal movements for destroying obstacles, and more.
Technical Concepts: Lego Mindstorm
  • Code and Control Motors and sensors: Color, Distance, Touch, Gyro.
  • Many beginner to advanced challenges including Magic 8 ball, multi speed car, self driving car, light source search, and many more. One of the most advanced Robotics curriculum found on Earth or Vulcan.

Game & Animation with Scratch

July 10 - 14Morning with Robotics & Coding

Campers build games, animations and applications using MIT's Scratch platform and see creations come to life immediately in front of their eyes. Campers will build a myriad of different games from Space pursuits to Wizard battles.... Innovative Ball games to logic puzzles using the simple yet amazingly powerful Scratch Platform. Challenges to keep both Beginner and Advanced programmers engaged and learning.

Advanced: Our Advanced Scratch program boasts a highly engaging curriculum designed for experienced programmers. If you think Scratch is just simple block coding, think again. In the Advanced Game Programming curriculum, your experienced programmer child will learn many sophisticated algorithms to build ultimate challenging games like the Harry Potter Wizarding battle, the Wingardium Leviosa where you cast custom spells based on custom waves of the wand and much more. A great program to learn advanced Game Design logic in a very comfortable platform designed by MIT.

Design and Technical Concepts:
  • Conceptualizing an idea and implementing with Code
    • Simple to complex games
    • Short animation movies
  • Using library of sprites and background and designing custom characters.
