Students will learn about different aspects of computer science and be inspired to explore different careers. Students will participate in a wide variety of activities to encourage and develop their creative problem-solving skills!

Who: Created with 4th-6th graders in mind, activities could be adapted for a middle school audience

Anticipated Supply Cost: It is FREE to use these online curriculum. Materials to implement the curriculum are the responsibility of the user. You can expect to spend approximately $30 - $45 per camper in materials. The cost will vary based on materials used, vendor, etc. These activities use many materials that you may already have on hand (paper, scissors, yarn, etc.), which will also reduce the overall cost of the camp.

Please Note: There is an optional robotics activity that is included on Day 5 which would add an addition $225 per camper if each student is receiving their own robot. However, you may choose to use another brand of programmable robot that you already have or skip the activity entirely.

Throughout this camp you'll learn and experience:

  • Computer science vocabulary

  • “Unplugged” programming - meaning no computer needed!

  • Binary code

  • Pixel art

  • Create your own card game using code

  • Create and decode secret messages

  • Light it up with circuits

  • Explore web design

  • Learn how to use computational thinking to solve nearly any problem!

  • Explore careers in computer science
