This summer is for building confidence, learning real-life skills, making friends, and having a fabulous time. This summer is for Discover Coding Summer Camps! Kids of all skill levels will learn, code, and create this summer as they gain hands-on coding experience and discover what they can accomplish. Coders can choose to create their own games and apps, get creative with YouTube video creation or graphic design, or spend some time playing and learning on their favourite gaming platforms. With a goal to empower kids to create with technology, Discover Coding offers your child a chance to amaze themselves as they create with technology.
Discover Coding: Progressive Coding Program
Discover Coding is proud to offer a progressive coding program that will allow your child to develop their skills as they experience continued growth and success. Using discovery-based learning, students are encouraged to learn through hands-on exploration. Coders will be introduced to basic concepts and work to specialize their skillset as they move progressively through the coding levels. Achievements will be encouraged through report cards and certificates, so kids can see how far they have come.
Block Coding helps develop a strong coding foundation. During these introductory courses, students will get comfortable with problem-solving and technology as they begin to build their own games, apps and projects on the computer. Best of all, they will gain confidence and friends in this fun and positive group learning environment!
Python Programming offers the next steps with the introduction of text-based coding. Students will be able to develop more complex games and programs as they expand their knowledge of Python algorithms.
Learn With Popular Gaming Platforms
Minecraft and Minecraft Jr Camps are always a hit, as Minecraft is a popular choice for children and educators alike. During Discover Coding’s Minecraft-themed camps, students can learn the basics of coding by creating their own mods, building resources, and designing incredible 3D structures. Your child will have a blast playing alongside fellow Minecraft enthusiasts while learning valuable STEM and coding skills.
Roblox Game Design is for all the kids who love Roblox! With Discover Coding, these kids can learn to design their own obstacle course (Obby), learn the basics of 3D modelling and game design, and begin to learn how to code in Lua. Is there a better way to learn than in a room full of excited kids who all share your same interests?
Get Creative with the Digital Makers Series
Technology and creativity intersect with Discover Coding’s selection of one-off classes. This summer kids can expand their abilities, specialize, and become digital makers with a range of exciting classes, like YouTuber Boot Camp, Micro:bit Camp, and Intro to App Creation.
With programs at Discover Coding, your children will have the 21st-century skills they need to be leaders in their digital world. They will become problem solvers, working creatively with others and developing critical thinking skills. This summer, it’s time to inspire your kids to be creators of technology, not just consumers!
