There is very little we can do in today’s world without interfacing with a computer in some form. Computers are everywhere! But, how does one “talk” to a computer to tell it what to do? Coding is the process of translating an algorithm (a set of steps to accomplish a task) into a programming language. Campers will learn to define a problem and implement a solution using the Scratch programming language (https://scratch.mit.edu/). Learning to code has benefits beyond working with computers. It teaches how to problem-solve and fosters new ways of thinking that children learn to apply to all aspect of their lives. Actual lessons will be based on camper’s proficiency.
