In our camps, we teach teens how to turn their ideas into reality using the power of code. The camp moves from basic logic and programming concepts to advanced coding, all through fun, experience and practice.
To give children basic computer science concepts and enable them to engage experitentially in logical thought
To provide design and planning habits – self-discipline, working individually and as part of a group, simplification skills, and modular thought
To expose the children to the software development project process – problem solving from the problem analysis stage through the actualization of the solution
Introduction of “Alice”
Tekkies will start their journey in a unique blocks-based development environment called “Alice”. They will study and implement basic coding concepts such as: Objects, Methods, User Interface, Rules and Variables.
The Jumping Rabbit or the Landing Astronaut are the first basic APPs that our tekkies code by themselves. These cute APPs teach them to move objects according to rules and variables.
Getting to know Mobile APP Development using “Live Code”
Tekkies will get aquinted with “live code”: A mobile app development language.They will also write code and learn to implement tools such as: Text Field, Push Button, Label, Handlers, and Combining Media Files in the app
Be Cool is the first APP that is developed using real syntax writing. The APP allows texts to appear and disappear as a consequence of different textual inputs.
The Coding Playground
Tekkies’ first game is just around the corner! The kids will plan a theme, use text fields, cards and control pannels. They will use Methods and Handlers, create an original UI and implement rules. They will also design their APP.
My Tamago is a nice and simple game where the gamers can control the counter positioned in the center of the screen. The game’s UX is uniquely designed by our young tekkies.
Educational Softwares Essentials
Tekkies will experience building their first educational software and will learn how to analyze the software’s components, coding with different input components, and combining animation. They will also get acquainted with basic marketing concepts.
Deep Sea Adventure is an educational APP that teaches toddlers the names of the different colors. The APP is designed by each kid according to his or her imagination.
Rich Educational Software
Tekkies will learn how to use and edit sound, use commands that will record users’ data, build a scoreboard, use animation, and transfer data to external software.
Space Odyssey is a self-learning program that performs addition and subtraction of numbers within the group of ten.
Mastering your APP
Tekkies will learn how to store data, use smart code, develop engines to change themes, use control panels and build switches that identify types of clicks.
My Lite Browser is a website index APP that allows creating and editing shortcuts from the smartphone. While working on this APP, kids will exercise the main skills that they have acquired during their first year.
Our teachers individualize learning. They put their students in the position of being active learners who gain academic and life skills. Great teachers also innovate, collaborate, accept accountability, function as learners, and make efficient use of resources, among other things.
