CAMP INFO

Minecraft Coding: (Ages 6+ )

Children are experts and end users of Minecraft. they use this passion and interest to learn to code the games that they play every day. Minecraft makes coding fun yet meaningful.

Children are experts and end users of Minecraft. They use this passion and interest to learn to code the games that they play every day. Minecraft makes coding fun yet meaningful.

This course is designed for students who are looking to learn to code the games they play everyday. Minecraft makes coding fun yet meaningful as players learn and understand coding concepts that they bring to life in the game! The participant can use a drag and drop interface which is highly intuitive. Coding concepts like variables, if/then/else statements and constructors will be learnt.

Virtual Reality Coding: (Ages 7+ )

Content creation and coding for a highly interactive virtual reality 3-D world. Learn to build interactions with block-based coding or advanced scripting.

Our students use computer aided design (CAD) to create their 3-D worlds. They then use visual block-based and intuitive programming language to code interactions between the various elements of their virtual reality world and the end user of their product. A key learning goal is to work as a team and create projects with a story line and theme.

Lego robotics: (Ages 6+ )

In this course children use the LEGO WeDo 2.0 to design robots to solve a real-world ‘big problem’ such as pollution, animal welfare, space exploration. They learn to code their robots in interactive challenges. In addition to the basics of robotics, children learn key engineering principles such as force and motion, gear ratios and aerodynamics.

Game Design: (Ages 7+ )

Become game developers for a day using a virtual platform for creating and publishing video games. Students create their own 13-bit layouts, characters, and art for their game.

We provide resources that encourage collaboration while guiding students through a design thinking process. Code Kids is a team of engineers, coders, and developers with a special interest in hands on learning. Our approach is project based. We don’t teach coding for the sake of coding. Our holiday camp offers Immersive, project-based learning through interactive platforms!

Roblox Coding: (Age 10+ Only)

Learn to code using your favourite gaming platform and develop fun Roblox games. Our Lua based code editor is particularly suitable for this age group because it is really easy to use and can be built up to more text-heavy coding once you get comfortable with the basics.

This camp is a great introduction to both fundamental computer aided design and the Lua programming language. By the end of the course, the students will be comfortable programming and creating Roblox games and will have published at least one game on to Roblox, which could end up helping them make lots of Robux!

 

PLEASE NOTE: If you are attending Roblox Coding, children should bring their own Windows or Mac Laptop to this camp. You will need to have the following free software installed.

Roblox Studio (download here) will only work on a Mac or Windows laptop/computer

No prior coding experience necessary. If your child has been to one of these workshops before, then their learning will be extended further and they will not have to repeat the same content as before.
