We are a San Francisco Bay Area based provider of coding camps. Our camps are held during summer and school breaks and open to children of all ages. We use a fun, engaging and unique methodology that appeals to children and makes them yearn for learning. Our offerings include and are not limited to:
Game programming Our hugely popular Minecraft modding camps harness your child's love of the fascinating game and transform it into an engaging learning experience wherein they build towers, create explosions, transpose characters while mastering programming languages such as Java/Python and understanding of algorithms. Alternatively, your child can choose to indulge in their creativity by assembling interactive stories in the visual programming language of Scratch
App development Your child may have played with a lot of mobile apps but how cool would it be to have them build one?! App programming involves designing and building useful apps and games for mobile devices using MIT's App Inventor, an open source, visual and interactive tool. Another option is building captivating and detailed games for mobile devices using the extensive Stencyl libraries.
