President's Day STEM Camp: Adventures in Coding at Launch Math & Science Centers

Launch Math + Science Centers

Kidz Tips
  • Grades 1-5
  • No previous coding experience required
  • Kids must be ok working on a computer

Get ready for a triple play of excitement as campers explore up to three different coding languages! Launch’s fledgling programmers use MIT’s Scratch 2.0 language to create their own unique games and animations while learning logic and mathematical concepts such as Cartesian (x,y) coordinates, variables, and iterative processes. Campers proficient in Scratch explore the coding of phone apps using MIT’s App Inventor programming tool, software that introduces kids to graphical user interface design (GUI), placement of buttons and text, and strategic use of multiple screens. Kids with advanced skills learn the text-based programming language known as Python and tackle techniques such as lists, if statements and loops while refining their problem solving and logical reasoning skills.

After a break for lunch we'll head outside to stretch our legs and explore the nearby Museum of Natural History!

Kids and parents alike love Launch Math and Science Center's STEM-focused camps.
