Scratch Computer Programming Camps

FEATURED CAMPS OF THE DAY: SCRATCH COMPUTER PROGRAMMING CAMPS

-ANIMATION AND DIGITAL ART WITH SCRATCH
Participants in this one-week camp learn to program computers by creating their own interactive
art. They can build their own Magic Pens, Etch-a-Sketches, and Color-Splattering Machines, and
they can create new projects of their own. Kids design their interactive art projects in Scratch, a free
MIT-developed computer programming language for children. They learn to use Scratch from any
computer in the world, publish their artwork to the web, and set up a Scratch website to share their
projects with parents, siblings, and friends. The camp is social, playful, artistic, and fun. It is ideal for
kids who love to create, build, and share. No prior computer programming experience is needed.

June 15-19 (entering grades 3-8) July 20-July 24 (entering grades 1-5.)

-VIDEO GAME CODING WITH SCRATCH
Participants in this one-week camp learn to program computers by creating their own video games.
They can build their own versions of classic games like Pong, Pac-Man, and Brick Breaker, or they can
create new games of their own. Kids build their games in Scratch, a free MIT-developed computer
programming language for children. They learn to use Scratch from any computer in the world,
publish their games to the web, and set up a Scratch website where they can share their games
with parents, siblings, and friends. The camp is social, playful, artistic, and fun. It is ideal for kids who
love to create, build, and share. No prior computer programming experience is needed. For a three minute video on the fun of creating with Scratch, visit http://vimeo.com/29457909.
June 15-19 (entering grades 1-5) and July 20-24 (entering grades 3-8.)

-BUILD YOUR OWN GAME CONTROLLERS
Participants in this one-week camp learn to program computers by building their own videogame
controllers. First, they learn to create their own video games. Then, they build controllers for their
games out of egg cartons, wire, duct tape, foam rubber, bottle caps, and tinfoil. Then they get friends
and teachers to play and test their games and devices. Kids design their games in Scratch, a free
MIT-developed computer programming language for children. To build their controllers, they use a
$45 SparkFun PicoBoard (http://goo.gl/5T6HUO). The PicoBoard is a sensor board containing light
sensors, sound sensors, touch sensors, and resistance sensors that extend the Scratch programming
language into the physical world. The camp is social, playful, artistic, and fun. It is ideal for kids who
love to create, build, and share.. For a three-minute video on the fun of creating with Scratch, visit

June 8-12 and July 27-31. Entering grades 1-5.

-PLAYDOUGH PIANOS AND CLOTHESPIN KEYBOARDS
Participants in this one-week camp learn to program computers by building their own music players
— physical devices that create digital music. They build their music players out of clothespins, playdough,
wires, mat board, duct tape, bottle caps, and tinfoil. Kids design their players in Scratch, a free
MIT-developed computer programming language for children. To build their instruments, they use a
$45 SparkFun PicoBoard (http://goo.gl/5T6HUO). The PicoBoard was created by the Scratch Team at
MIT. It contains light sensors, sound sensors, touch sensors, and resistance sensors that extend the
Scratch programming language into the physical world. The camp is social, playful, artistic, and fun.
It is ideal for kids who love to create, build, and share. For a three-minute video on the fun of creating
