Learning Programming is fun

Age appropriate and engaging classes to teach students programming skills  

Here the students will explore the world of Programming & Game Design and learn to think like Software Engineers and Game Developers.  The Classes and Camps for programmers range from Scratch Jr for young beginners to advanced languages like Robot C, C, Java, Python, HTML, JavaScript and also to Mobile App Development for advanced programmers. For the passionate game designers, we explore the the world of 3D game development on Unity as well as program in Minecraft.

Children love to play video games. Why not show them how to create their own games instead and channel their interest and creativity!  Learning is fun because the visual programming allows kids to rapidly transform ideas into actual programs by connecting blocks. Guided projects are given to the kids and once they are proficient, they can apply what they've learned and build their own unique games. Video game based learning and traditional methods don’t need to be mutually exclusive. Game based learning complements the shortcomings of traditional teaching in many ways.

Learning Programming Languages

Python Programming

Python is a programming language that is suitable for beginners. It is easy to read and write. 

Students learn the Syntax which is the basic set of rules that programming languages use. These rules are Python’s equivalent of grammar and punctuation. Python’s syntax is necessary for structuring a program so that the computer can understand the instructions the programmer is giving it.

MIT APP INVENTOR

MIT App Inventor is a software programming tool where students learn to build functional apps for smartphones and tablets. Students learn how to get their first app up and running in the very first class. They learn blocks-based tool to create complex, high-impact apps in significantly less time than traditional programming environments. Blocks-based coding programs inspire intellectual and creative empowerment for kids. The curriculum is based on teaching students to think computationally: to decompose problems, abstract and modularize, reuse and remix existing solutions, and to test fully to arrive at a working solution. Students will use MIT App Inventor, a blocks-based programming language with a development environment that runs in a browser, to design and build mobile apps. Students build their digital confidence and become empowered to create, rather than just use technology in their lives.

CHANTILLY CAMPS
Science & Engineering

This tracks explores the world of STEM - giving a strong foundation to build on in the area of Physics, Technology and Engineering. Classes and Camps such as Early STEM, Intermediate STEM, Bridge Engineering, Pneumatics, Renewable Energy, Life Sciences, Rocket Science and Engineering, etc give a beginner as well as an advanced learner to reinforce their concepts and create their own unique models with hands-on building challenges.

ROBOTICS

This tracks explores the world of Robotics - whether it is with Legos or with several new Robot blocks that we have. Classes and Camps in this track allow learners to not only build the robots but also program them so that the robots perform the actions that they are designed to do. Several challenge problems (including some from advanced Robotics Competitions like FLL and Vex) are given to students for them to ideate and solve and implement.
