MIDDLE SCHOOL TECHNOLOGY CAMPS

Our Middle School camps provide kids with experiences making real technology, just like they use every day. We offer professional level languages in Web Development and Python, and a powerful yet accessible entry point to Mobile Apps.

Daily Schedule

There are two weeks when we offer a half day sampler, which gives kids a taste of all three topics. This is great for those who are unsure of what they want to learn, or just want to see what coding is all about.

The remaining weeks are on a 10AM to 4PM schedule, which gives teens and pre-teens a later morning start but still provides a substantial amount of project time. There is an hour long outdoor lunch break at nearby Hamlin Park, and we will also take the class out for short group walks to refresh our brains as needed.

Topics Offered

Each week includes coding content and a related topic to connect the dots. We do Websites together with Graphic Design, learning to use Inkscape, a free Adobe Illustrator alternative. Mobile Apps are paired with Entrepreneurship, where kids will learn the importance of making products that fulfill a real need. And Python is paired with Raspberry Pi and circuits, to relate the hardware and software sides of computers together.
