Creative Computer Coding

Dates: TBA, 10:00 am to 3:30 pm

Our primary activities will run from 10am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions as some activities will build from one day to the next. The order of activities may change to accommodate student abilities and weather.

Students will play games to discover the basic nature of computer coding and then spend time developing their own programs. The programming environment used will depend on the age of the participants. This might include Mindstorms, Logo, Fourth, Python, Max, even working in Excel. The focus will be on getting noticeable results and creating “Artificial Intelligence.”

In addition to the primary activities, there will be extra time from 9:00 am to 10 am each morning and from 3:30 pm to 5 pm. These times are available by prior arrangement and are purely optional.

Note: This adventure is most suitable for 10 – 16 year olds. We have room for only the first 4 paid participants, so please hurry and get yourself included when you see all the fun photos.

  • Cost of the whole 27.5 hours is $250, including nutritious lunches, snacks throughout the day, and all admission and transportation fees.
  • Participants can also attend the Gaming Club at no extra cost if they are interested.
  • There is a $50 rebate for students registered with Avante School in the Fall.

In addition to all of the above, there is financial aid available to students in need and who sign up early enough to allow our donors to arrange it.
