Camp Descriptions

JavaScript Game Design:

Students will learn JavaScript by coding three different browser games.  They will be using a text editor called Sublime Text to write all their code.  They will learn:

  • How to create objects and have them appear on the screen
  • Edit images and create gifs for their games
  • Control objects on the screen with the keyboard
  • Collision detection
  • If statements, arrays, for loops and event listeners
  • Upload Games live to the web using GitHub!

Minecraft Mods in Java:

Students will learn how to create their own Java files and add them to the popular game Minecraft.  They will be using eclipse to code their Java classes in.  No minecraft account is needed! They will learn:

  • The structure of Java, including classes, methods & constructors
  • How to create new items, blocks, tools, armor, weapons, mobs and much more.
  • How to add your new code to Minecraft
  • How to package Java files into Jars for other people to use!

Why Do These Camps?

Our Goal is to expose youth to code in its real environment with great teachers.  Coding is a lot of fun and become very necessary to learn, especially the basics. They will learn how to code.  Not only do we teach students how to code, but also how to upload it live online to share.  This online portfolio of their code will be very beneficial as they apply for internships and college!
