Class Experience

Children learn basic coding principles by building a story of their own design. Initially, they'll follow an instructor to learn to model a story. Then, participants will be challenged to modify the story, applying the coding techniques learned.

Students are encouraged to work on projects off-line and instructors will provide optional "Lab Time" to work with students 1:1 after classes to check in and respond to ask questions.

Throughout this course, kids will apply their understanding of algorithms and programming and illustrate a personal story in a sequential manner. Even Pixar will be impressed with the final creations!

Notes

1) Classes alternate. The first class is a lesson. The class that follows is a lab where children apply the skills learned in the prior class.
During the 1 Hr class session, instruction is provided and students are given short periods to apply their learning
During the lab time, instructors work with students is smaller groups and 1:1, Instructors may provide instruction specific to projects the kids are working on. Children are encouraged to ask questions and get personal attention outside of regular classes.
2) Students are encouraged to work between the classes on their own or in the lab.
3) This class is co-ed. In alignment with our nonprofit mission to inspire more girls to pursue STEM, all-girl classes are also available.
4) If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, we encourage you to complete our short form to apply: https://booleangirl.org/scholarship-application/

Loved:

My daughter loves every part of camp. She loves how much time she gets to work on her story and her coding. She also enjoys the down time of games/crafts and lunchtime events.

Improvements:

Everything seems to be really well structured, planned and executed.

Loved:

My daughter loved the experience of coding. She felt that the counselors were patient and supportive of her as she learned.

Improvements:

I don't think the kids got much time outside during the day, and a little exercise/movement/outside time would have been good.
