Robots and Programming with Lego WeDo

Build and program simple robotic systems using LEGO® Education WeDo!

  • Use simple coding skills, engineering concepts, components of the robotic system and connect it to block programming to expand your project.

  • Campers assess different outputs of the system by varying the inputs and variables. They learn to analyze and present these results to an audience. This program reinforces team-building skills, boosts confidence and encourages your child to experiment with new ideas.

  • Instructors provide learning opportunities for developing these broader learning goals:

  • Think creatively to make a working model

  • Develop vocabulary and communication skills to explain how the model works

  • Establish links between cause and effect

  • Reflect on how to find answers and imagine new possibilities

  • Brainstorm ideas and endeavor to bring some of them to fruition

  • Make fair tests by changing one factor and observing or measuring the effect

  • Make systematic observations and measurements

  • Display and communicate data using tables

  • Follow 2D drawings to build a 3D model

  • Think logically and create a program to produce a specific behavior

  • Write and present creative stories using models for visual and dramatic effects

Creative Computing

Date: July 8 - July 12

Time: 9am - 3pm

Age: 7 to 10 years old

Location: Academy of Thought and Industry

2690 Jackson St, San Francisco, CA 94115

Creative Computing

  • Explore, imagine and create!

  • 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.

Game Design with Scratch

Date: June 17 - June 21

Time: 9am - 3pm

Age: 8 to 12 years old

Location: Academy of Thought and Industry

2690 Jackson St, San Francisco, CA 94115

Game Design - Intermediate Scratch

  • Create your own interactive games using Scratch Programming language!

  • Campers will learn the basics of game design and features necessary to make a fun and interactive game with controls, scores, multiple levels, and user interface.

  • For intermediate levels, campers will get additional challenges to solve and will learn new concepts that they can integrate in a game of their own design.

  • Plus, all campers will learn how to share games online and to provide feedback to peers.

My First Code with Python

Date: July 22 - July 26

Time: 9am - 3pm

Age: 9 to 13 years old

Location: Academy of Thought and Industry

2690 Jackson St, San Francisco, CA 94115


My First Code - Beg. Python


This class teaches the fundamentals of computer programming and demonstrates how to code fun and creative projects using Python, a free, intuitive, open-source programming language. Students will learn Python using Repl.it, a free online developing environment and draw colorful spirals, shapes with Turtle graphics, create fun apps and games.
Students will need a valid email @ to use Repl.it and a signed consent from their legal guardian (if younger than 13 years old)
