Class Experience

Using Scratch, students will learn how to manipulate active objects, known as sprites, using either pre-rendered graphics or drawing their own art. The visual programming system allows kids to visually comprehend their program instructions as they watch their graphics move and animate as kids program them. Even though this camp is a programming camp, this course is highly interactive and allows students to have lots of fun while learning programming in a creatively flexible environment.
Campers learn :
The Scratch Programming Language
Control and Motion Blocks
Adding and editing sprites in Scratch
How to create animations in the Scratch Programming Language
Global Variables and Local Variables
Creating animations, computer games, and interactive projects

At the end of the week, students will take home their completed projects and art so they can continue working at home.


Covid-19 Precautions

COVID-19 guidelines: All staff and students must be screened using a digital no touch thermometer. Students and staff must wear a mask, practice social distancing and regularly wash their hands.

About SciTech Kids

SciTech Kids is a STEAM lab that nurtures a love of Science, Technology, Engineering Art, and Math through hands-on experiences that capture children's imagination. We turn the idea of teaching STEAM on its head. Kids learn STEAM and scientific concepts by “doing STEM” that is connected to their everyday life.

SciTech Kids’ curriculum brings STEAM to life through a student-centered approach that uses the power of inquiry and creativity to create captivating science activities.
Our curriculum covers various branches of science including biology, chemistry, physics, paleontology, forensics, electronics, ecology, botany, and astronomy. The kids’ questions and ideas are at the center of the learning experience. Led by our highly trained instructors, classes focus not only on the STEM content and process but also on real-world applications that empower students to become problem solvers.
