Summer Camp - Online: Coding Cartoons
DESCRIPTION: During our all-new Coding Summer Camp, we will help foster that story your child wants to tell in an original way. Students will be learning how cartoons are made, designing their own characters, and then bringing it all to life, through coding in MIT’s Scratch program. Whether they’re brand new to coding or a seasoned pro, we’ve got something for them. By the end of the week they will have created an animated story to share with family and friends, coded all by themselves!
-Full refund, up until 3 weeks prior to start date.
-No credits nor refunds for absences due to illness or otherwise.
-Easy change of weekly camps if your schedule changes, with advance notice and based on availability.
TECH SET UP:
PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING PRIOR TO THE START OF CAMP! The use of caps, bold, italics is because not taking these steps in advance will reduce the cool things we can accomplish, and lessen the experience for everyone. We see the frustration on young, and adult faces as everyone waits while families that didn’t follow these steps catch up. If you have questions, please call us prior to class at 424-280-4654. Thank you in advance for improving this experience for everyone.
