Video Game Programming – 4th-8th Grade (WEEK 1)

Attention gamers! Learn to design your own video games using JavaScript code! Each camper will develop his/her own video game starring popular characters from Flappy Bird, the Amazing World of Gumball, Big Hero and more! Each game will have a story during which characters may score points, interact, throw micro bots, vanish one another, etc. The games will be sharable, and campers will be able to play them on a computer or mobile device.

Robotics – 3rd-5th Grade (WEEK 2)

Want to be on the edge of technology? Robotics is a project-based camp that will enhance engineering, science, and technology skills. VEX Robots help students unlock the power of their imagination by designing and constructing remote-controlled robotic devices. Students will learn the concepts of Machine Intelligence, which is found in almost all the devices and machines we deal with, from cars to cell phones. The students will work to design the robot, build it, and move it by remote control. They will learn about robot sensors, which enables the robot to “feel” its environment. Finally, they will learn programming in order to give the robot an ability to perform some defined tasks autonomously. For example, they will try to make the robot follow a certain “black line” on the ground or program it to find its way around an obstacle in its path. The students’ individual progress will determine how complex they can go with robot autonomy.

Coding Camp – 3rd-8th Grade (WEEK 6)

This advanced coding camp is for those students who have previous experience coding either from Heritage Oak’s school year computer class or elsewhere. Campers will use Minecraft, Star Wars, Frozen, Angry Birds, and additional characters and games as inspiration as they learn how to write JavaScript code. This class is a great stepping stone in preparing campers to create their own video games!

Web Design- Pokémon Trainer Society – 4th-8th Grade (WEEK 7)

This web design class will allow campers to create their own Pokémon Monster and then highlight it by designing a basic html website. Utilizing the Adobe Creative Suite, campers will get an introduction to many cutting-edge graphics programs used by designers today. Campers will need to bring a flash drive to camp in order to save and share their work with others. 

Pre-Coding Club – Kindergarten-2nd Grade (WEEK 7) 

Do you have a child that loves technology and computers? If so, they will LOVE pre-coding club! Not only will students learn the basics of how to use a computer including how to properly use a mouse, home row typing finger placement, and how to open and close programs, they will also begin to understand the concept of coding and learn how to do some basic programming using JavaScript and their favorite characters from Angry Birds, Zombies, Frozen, Star Wars, Minecraft and More!
