Students go home with $100 electronics kit and the knowledge of how to code using it!
This week long experience will take campers through the three basic algorithms and four pillars of computer science. Students will then be able to flex their learning with a series of DIY electronics projects based on the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express.
***It is recommended that the student bring their own computer. We have computers that campers can rent for $50 a week. This is a separate purchase and must be made at the time of registration through the store to secure the appropriate hardware.***
Three Basic Algorithms: Sequence, Selection, and Iteration
Four Pillars of CS: Variables, Loops, Conditionals, and Functions
Students will be working with and coding in languages that best fit their needs but MakeCode (block-based) and Python (test-based) are recommended.
Students will go home with their new coding knowledge and electronics skills as well as their DIY creation from their weeks work! The Circuit Playground kit is $99 on Adafruit.com and we will be providing a few additional accessories to DIY with their projects
