Ages 8 - 13 • Littleton

About: Programming our own animated stories, designing basic games, and exploring coding in Minecraft Pi: these are a few of the paths we’ll follow during Summer 2019’s Coding Camp! Although we’ll focus heavily on block-based coding environments like Scratch, we’ll tinker a little bit with text-based coding in Python, and explore some all-new coding environments too!

Ages 8 - 13 • Littleton



About: 
We’ll take the world of robotics head-on during this compelling camp, using primarily LEGO EV3 Mindstorms kits to design robots of all kinds to solve engineering challenges. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to robotics or have lots of EV3 experience: there’s fun and engaging challenges for all levels! All new this year: we’ll explore Novel Engineering, where we take problems characters find themselves in amidst our favorite novels, and design real-world robotics solutions for them!

Ages 8-13 • Littleton

ALL NEW FOR SUMMER 2019!

About: Telling stories can happen in many ways, and the many tools of animation allow us to bring our story ideas to life in an instant! Join us as we unlock the animator’s toolbox, which includes: Stop Motion Animation, Replacement Animation, Pixelation, and more! We’ll use these techniques in HUE Animation Studio to bring some wild story ideas to life: can you hatch a dragon out of an egg? Can you turn a globe into a mass of smaller marbles? How about making your friends appear to fly? After Animation Studio Camp, you’ll have the ability to add effects like these to your story!
