Courses run once a week throughout the school year from September till April. Different courses are offered including mobile app development, robotics and Arduino programming.  

Course List

Students will learn how to build fully functional apps for smartphones and tablets using App Inventor.  The App Inventor is a block-based programming environment that facilitates the creation of complex, high-impact apps in significantly less time than the traditional programming environments.

Students will combine the knowledge of programming and electronics in order to build systems and control them using Arduino micro-controllers. A good knowledge of Scratch programming is a prerequisite to join this program.

Students will get a hands-on introduction to the Blockly programming language, one of the world’s most widely used programming languages with Cozmo, the friendly robot.

Students will get a hands-on introduction to the Python programming language, one of the world’s most widely used programming languages, with Cozmo, the friendly robot. A good knowledge of Scratch programming is a prerequisite to join this program.

Students will learn what Artificial Intelligence is with focus on machine learning. They will also learn about its implications and limitations, and will discuss examples where AI is used to solve problems important for society. The course includes hands-on exercises where students develop machine learning models, and get to integrate them into mobile apps.

Students will learn how to program electronics using the BBC micro:bit, a microprocessor designed specifically to teach programming through physical computing i.e. computing to control hardware in the physical world. They will discover how engineering and programming work together to make new and exciting inventions.

Students will learn how to use SolidWorks Apps for kids, an online 3D design tool perfect for younger campers to make everything from name tags and personalised figures. They will also learn about 3D printing and take home a printed object of their own design.
