HACK THE CLASS (Intro to Coding)

Hosted by a school’s math and/or science teacher, the week long classroom experience operates similar to the summer code camp(s). It operates 1-1.5 hours a day and “takes over” the math and/or science period. Appropriate for ages 9-15 years old, the campers learn the basics of coding through an interface that resembles a video game platform– thereby building immediate enthusiasm and level of comfort. Once the week is complete, the intent is for the teacher and/or school volunteer to then start hosting a weekly code club at the school.

FLG CODE CAMP (Summer Sessions 2017)

Week 2- Robotics & Web Development: June 19 – June 23

Hosted at Flagstaff Junior Academy (Middle School Campus), the week long summer code camp(s) operates four hours a day and includes 2-3 hours of coding each day. Appropriate for ages 8-12 years old, the campers learn the basics of coding through an interface that resembles a video game platform– thereby building immediate enthusiasm and level of comfort. This year we are incorporating ROBOTICS that the students will engineer and code their ROBOTS throughout the week. As the camp progresses, the campers work in group development teams to design and develop various coding projects and challenges. The camp also introduces all of the various roles and potential careers that make-up the digital workplace eco-system. Community leaders and digital professionals periodically visit and present to the campers to address the importance of learning to code and how coding plays a role directly or indirectly in their own professional lives.
