What do I need in order to participate in the course?


You will need a stable internet connection, and a computer with a keyboard to use the program. Programming is most easily done on a keyboard, so we do not recommend using devices such as iPads, tablets, or phones.


You will also receive a SparkFun project building kit in the mail from us. We will provide everything for the projects that require this equipment. However, it may be handy to have items such as extra batteries and art supplies (e.g., colored pencils) handy.



What are the activities?


Blobbert the Video Game

This activity is an amazingly fun progressive video game, where coders help complete the game using JavaScript. It helps kids learn about the basics of the language while giving immediate feedback! 



Tinker Project 1

Kids will make their own flashlight using a battery, LED light, a rubber band, and a paper kit.



Micro:bit Introduction

During this course, kids will learn about programming Micro:bits, a small computer. With the help of block code, they will learn how to code an animation, a magic 8 ball, and a Madlibs game!



Micro:art

With their micro:bit and moto:bit, kids will make their own pieces of moving art—a perfect combination of art and technology!



Web Development Story

This course gives a basic rundown of how the internet works and teaches the basics of HTML and CSS—languages that are used on websites. All of this is taught by having the campers build their own custom "Choose Your Own Adventure" web-based game!



Tinker Project 2

With a battery, LED and a paper kit, build kids will build their own paper helicopter!



Face Filters

This project allows kids to create their own face filters, similar to what you can do on programs such as snap chat and Instagram!



Tinker Project 3

With a battery, LED, some magnets, and tape, kids will be able to make a fun light-up magnet they can play with!



Virtual Reality

The VR course is designed to teach kids the basics of creation in the 3D environment. They use HTML to create 3D worlds which not only reinforces basic HTML, but also teaches kids how to construct items in a virtual 3D space! The end product can be viewed immersively in 3D goggles!



Micro:car Project

Kids will be able to build and code their own remote control car with their Spark Fun building kit. How cool is that?
