The popular Junior Innovators Institute is back for summer 2017. The weekly program is for students entering grades 6-8 who love to experiment with technology, build things, and imagine what's possible. This summer's sessions include:
Computer Creation & Coding with Kano
Students will build their own pocket-size computer with the Kano computer kit. After the computer is created, students will go through coding exercises and build projects within their computer. At the end of the week, students will take home their computer to continue learning and building new things with their Kano (Raspberry Pi) computer kit.
Video Games & Graphics
This camp allows kids to learn to make their own creations in graphic design software through learning design basics. They will learn how to create their own characters, backgrounds, enemies, obstacles, stages, etc. that can be used as assets in a video game.
Mobile Phone Game Creation
In this camp, students will use Construct 2 software to create a game that can be played on a mobile device. This software also utilizes drag and drop programming but with more in-depth capabilities. Students will create their own worlds, learn to create and animate their own characters, create objectives in their games and deliver the games on a phone.
Space is limited for all camps. Discounted tuition is available for students who sign up for all three weeks.
