Little Programmers / Intro to Robotics

Come and play with your new Robot friend!
Campers are going to program Beebots robots and send them on fun adventures like going through a maze, navigating through a city and/or adding and subtracting.
This program is designed for boys and girls ages 5 to 7. This is a camp for beginner level.
This toy won’t start marching with the flick of the on switch. Instead, campers will use sequencing, estimation, and problem solving to program their robots. Plus, other activities during the program cover computational thinking exercises, studying the technology timeline and hardware.
This camp is a great introduction to Robotics.

Explore, imagine and create! That is the core of Creative Computing.
This program is designed for boys and girls ages 7 to 10. This is a camp for beginner level.
The campers will document their ideas in a design workbook, then use Scratch to create computational artifacts (like games, animations, music composition) using ideas from their lives and interests. They will reflect on their own projects and learn how to provide feedback on other campers’ projects. The goal of this camp is to increase fluency with computational thinking and programming concepts, using a curriculum developed by Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Web Design using HTML and JavaScript

Date: June 11 - June 15

Time: 9am - 3pm

Age: 11 to 15 years old

Location: Menlo Park, Arrillaga Family Rec. Center

This program introduces students to the magical world of creating their own webpages using HTML. They will be linking to other sites; learning how to add images; collecting information from visitors. They will also be introduced to JavaScript programming to make their website pages more interactive. At the end of the program your child will have a website of their own design. Children must be computer literate (master typing and use of the mouse and trackpad is a must).

Children’s creativity is endless. If kids engage in design from an early age, they will be able to expand their creative potential. They are able to imagine things that go beyond expectations. Learning HTML is a fun way for kids to express themselves.

Aftercare is available until 6pm. For more information, Email directly to the city of Menlo Park: CRRoman@menlopark.org
