Class Experience

Cookology and Boolean Girl are teaming up to provide an immersive one-day cooking and coding camp experience for children ages 8 to 13 (grades 3-8)!


Students will enjoy a cooking class in the morning, lunch onsite, and a coding class in the afternoon.


A computer follows a code the same way a chef follows a recipe! After spending the morning in the kitchen, children will join Boolean Girl to learn how to whip up an amazing program by writing their own code. We will be using Scratch, a drag-and-drop multimedia programming language designed by MIT, to create a unique project that aligns with what the children have learned in the kitchen that week!


Boolean Girl offers computer science education in a collaborative and welcoming environment. Students learn coding and engineering skills to prepare them for a broad set of careers, but they are too busy having fun to notice. Boolean Girl encourages and inspires all children ages 8 to 14. Mixing hands-on coding with interactive play, your computer scientist will build an animated story of their own design applying their creativity and newly learned programming skills. Guided by our rockstar instructors, your child will have a blast.

Maximum 30 students


Purchase all the dates or drop-in on the day of your choice.

Total camp cost $835 for all 6 classes or a per class cost of $145

After school pick up is available. The cost is an additional $10 a day for 60 addtional minutes. Children must be picked up at 4:30pm. There will be no additional cooking or coding in this hour. They are welcome to the time to study. Snacks will be provided.
