Camp Dates, Times, and Fees Vary 

Intro to Python (Ages 11 & Up) $160
Session 1:  July 9-13   8:30am-12:00pm
Session 2: August 13-17   1pm-4:30pm
Registration Link: www.daemen.edu/TechCamps-Python

In this computer programming camp, campers will be introduced to coding using cool graphics, games, and programs! Campers benefit from clean syntax and other streamlined attributes within Python that provide a new approach to learning and understanding programming. With Python, coders can often write code quicker, allowing them to produce project results in a shorter period of time. In this camp, campers learn new programming concepts and skills, develop logical thinking, and code impressive and entertaining projects! The campers will also be taking home a flash drive with a copy of all of their projects and a daily snack is included. No prior coding experience is necessary.

Roblox Game Creation and Coding (Ages 10 & Up) $160
Session 1:  July 9-13   1pm-4:30pm
Session 2: August 13-17   8:30am-12pm
Registration Link: www.daemen.edu/TechCamps-Roblox

Roblox is the largest social platform for play that allows kids to imagine, create, and play together in immersive 3D worlds. Roblox gives players a safe, moderated place to play and collaborate on creative projects. During this half day camp, campers will see a new approach to the platform and become empowered to discover the underlying mechanics of game development in a collaborative environment. Our campers will learn how to think critically about their work with the infinite possibilities of the platform. They will also learn how to build and code immersive experiences and games using LUA coding. No prior coding experience is necessary and it includes a daily snack.

Wearable Tech (Ages 9 & Up) $170
July 23-27   8:30am-12pm
Registration Link: www.daemen.edu/TechCamps-Wearable

Have a passion for fashion and tech? This course explores where design and technology intersect. Learn the engineering design process to create your very own digital circuits. Discover how to combine hands-on design and crafting techniques with circuits and electronics. Campers will work on several hands-on projects that spring to life with lights. Some planned projects included a plush monster, a mask, and either a t-shirt or small blanket. Includes a daily snack and campers get to take home all of their projects! No prior engineering or sewing experience is necessary.

Exploring micro:bit (Ages 10 & Up) $170
Session 1: July 23-27   1pm-4:30pm
Session 2: August 6-10  8:30am- 12pm
Reigstration Link: www.daemen.edu/TechCamps-Microbit

This is where coding and engineering collide! Starting with a new type of hardware, then learning how a computer executes coded instructions. Put this together with object-oriented programming concepts in JavaScript and the campers will learn how to program the micro:bit, their own interactive pocket-sized computer. Use a mini-computer to create fun projects in our Exploring micro:bit Camp! Campers will become familiar with programming concepts and electronics components, while building practical, hands-on electronics projects using the micro:bit. They will also learn coding in Microsoft MakeCode, a beginner-friendly block-based programming environment. Includes a daily snack and campers will get to take home the micro:bit kit that they used during the camp. No prior coding experience is necessary.
