LEGO Robotics, Mixed - Gorham-5
This camp is for any level of LEGO Roboteer! So if you are a rookie or a veteran this camp can take you and help move your skills forward. We start off with some basics since even the veterans have often forgotten a lot since last year, and of course some beginners are more advanced. Our camp staff try as quickly as possible to figure out which you are. Usually one staff member will be working primarily with the beginners and one primarily with the advanced, with the third floating as needed.
Open to ages 9 to 13, no experience needed. Computer Lab, first floor of the Science Building (Falmouth Street).
Family supplies camper lunch; we provide snacks.
Programming in Minecraft - Portland-5
With over 110,000,000 monthly users, and over 200,000 servers running in the world (some 8,000 at any one time), Minecraft has become one of the world’s top games, and certainly the top creative game.
There are over hundreds of thousands of people playing Minecraft at any moment! You probably know lots of people who spend time creating houses, roads, towns, mines, as well as gather experience points by battling monsters (mobs). What if you could start learning how to change what you are doing, not just playing with what the game comes with?
In the Programming in Minecraft Camp we will be using the software to start learning how to modify the gaming environment. There will also be time to "just play the game", but the focus will be on learning new skills that relate to programming in the environment.
Depending on the instructor and the campers, we will also spend time with basic computer logic and an introduction to computer languages.
You do not need to have a Minecraft account, but you should bring your login information with you if you have an account so you can play as yourself. Open to ages 10 to 14
