Creative Computing with JavaScript

June 22-26

Half-day: 8:45–11:30 a.m.   $250

Grades 6-8

Campers in the JavaScript course will learn the basics of this popular programming language through a hands-on, project-based curriculum that introduces them to the fundamentals of object-oriented programming. They’ll learn about sequencing, functions & arguments, properties, variables, arrays, loops, randomness, conditionals, and more.

Through the standards-aligned, web-based tutorials, campers will discover ways that coding is employed in a wide variety of industries – from entertainment to TV news, fashion to environmental science. Along with the coding instruction, students will learn about computer science and practice 21st century skills such as collaboration, global awareness, and public speaking.

Campers will flex their creative and technical muscles through a series of engaging projects. They will code their own videos, create filters, design original graphic effects, animate motivational memes, and develop interactive maps. Extra time will be given each day for experimenting and exploring beyond the curriculum.

Campers may join other MB camps in the afternoon, but must register separately.
