Winter Recess Camps: Beginner Ages 7-Adult
December 23, 24, 26, 27, 30, 31 @ 1PM-4PM


Each afternoon during our Winter Recess Camps, students ages 7-Adult will start out with a Coding lesson using Scratch®.  We will then try our hands at learning some Engineering with Beginner Engineers.  

For full descriptions, please see below.  

Scratch® Coding

Scratch® is a super-fun way to introduce your little your child to the wonders of coding!  Drag, drop, click… you’ll be amazed at what they can do!  Our curriculum keeps things fresh and introduces new projects to learn to use Scratch® including Video Game Design, Computer Animation, Story-Telling, Computer Graphic Arts, and more.  See how easy and fun learning to code can be! 
Repetition and practice are keys to learning how to code!  So, we’ve organized our lessons as short, 1-hour segments that can be taken at any time.  Different lessons are held during each class; new lessons are being added all the time.  See how easy and fun learning to code can be! 
Scratch® is recommended for Ages 7 and up.  To learn more about the Scratch® programming language, click here.  


Calling all budding Engineers!  Learn how things around you work by building super-cool TECHNIC® models that move!  In TECHNIC® Engineers kids create their own Cars, Cranes, Catapults and more while learning about Gears, Pulleys, Springs, and Axles.  What’s the difference between a Fan and a Windmill?  What does Torque mean anyway?  How do Transmissions work?  Find out the answers to these and more in this super-fun, challenging, hands-on experience!
