Little Coders

Our young ones are exposed to apps and coding at an early age. These camps are developed to guide young coders in the world of coding and robotics, and feed their curiosity to create cool coding projects. The little coders will create block codes, run them on intro robots, and learn how to fix real world coding problems. Their future will hold a world of apps and coding everywhere, and this camp can help guide them down a bright future of coding. These camps are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards, and are a great positive introduction to learning.
