Is your child into computers, video games, and technology? But are you concerned about too much unsupervised screen time? Attending a summer tech camp with this focus is actually a great way for kids to explore this interest while living a new experience with kids their age and expert instructors to guide them in a safe and constructive environment that can direct their interests towards more productive activities.
By understanding how technology around them works, kids also learn to use and grow skills and qualities for the rest of their life, especially as technology’s prevalence continues to grow in the workplace. Here are some of the in-person and virtual classes your child can sign up for in CodeREV’s Summer Tech Camp 2022:
Minecraft Level Design & Engineering
Grades 1-2; 3-5
In our most popular class for this age group, students learn the ins and outs of level design and game design while learning to engineer in Minecraft by using Red Stone. Students even learn basic code commands too! This class offers thrills AND education alike as students explore their inner Da Vinci in a STEM format perfect for Minecraft lovers!
**Level 2** Dives into more complex Redstone, level design, and commands
Adventures in Programming
Grades 1-2; 3-5
Students adventure through code as they begin exploring coding fundamentals by making games and animations using block-based coding in softwares such as Pencilcode, Scratch, Kodu and more. No prior typing experience or coding experience required. Kids sculpt their coding muscles in this adventure and leave having learned to code!!
**LEVEL 2** Level 2 dives deeper into coding concepts and assumes prior coding experience.
Grades 1-2; 3-5
Can you say win-win?! MathCraft is the class where both parents and students truly win as parents get to watch their students thrilled to do math! This class is a must for any parents who want their kids to enjoy math more and learn math more deeply. Students actually build math problems inside the game of Minecraft, and solve them using our one-of-a-kind, amazing MathCraft program. CodeREV is currently training teachers across America in this program, and even presented this groundbreaking class at conferences such as Minecon and the renowned ISTE EdTech conference! Math content is scaffolded so students work with their grade level relevant math to match age and ability.
Enter the world of Game Design, where students build amazing games. Students create multi-level games and learn to use programming concepts such as local and global variables, and the basics of object-oriented programming. We also teach students to animate characters to model whatever they want and can create games that look and feel great. Check out our Game Design video reel to view student work!
Roblox Studio Game Design (Micro)
Roblox is one of the hottest places in the universe to make games, with cutting-edge graphics and new, amazing, game-building tools. In our Roblox Game Design course, kids use Roblox’s built-in editor to create 3D worlds and then use the popular LUA coding language to code game actions, elements and mechanics. CodeREV Roblox campers also learn how to publish and share their game to the Roblox community worldwide!
**Level 2** Assumes prior Roblox coding experience and focuses on building more complex games (such as simulators), game actions, and effects.
