Description

COVID-19 updates (March 17, 2020):

Alberta declared a state of emergency under the Public Health Act. All spring break camps are currently cancelled.

This is a full-week Spring Break program for kids aged 8 to 12 (grades 3 to 6) to explore the fundamentals of computers, computing science, game design and coding. The experience is about problem solving through fun and discovery.

Students will program multiple types of games and projects, and will choose the features they want to build, and advance their problem-solving skills to build these feature using code. They will take ownership of their own projects and collaborate with their peers to create awesome products. By the end of the session, students will use a visual programming language to create a game they can share with their family and friends!

Some of the many coding concepts students will learn include:

  • Algorithms
  • Sequencing
  • Logic
  • Conditionals
  • Loops
  • Variables
  • Cloning

Students just come with prepared to learn, code and create.  All technology will be provided.

We do not spend the entire class in front of a screen! We emphasize offline and physical activities as well. Physical activity breaks will be provided by instructors from Quantum Leap Dance studios across the hall (specific activity to be determined).

  • Class starts at 9:00 AM (early drop-off starting at 8:30 AM)
  • Class ends at 4:00 PM (late pick-up until 4:30 PM)
