Learn to code through making games in Scratch. This camp exposes younger children to powerful Computational Thinking Skills in a way that is exciting, engaging and most of all, fun! In this Think Camp, we will examine existing Scratch games and learn to understand what is going on beneath the hood. We will solve a number of problems that will teach the coding skills needed to construct our own games. Finally, we will develop our own interactive games and share them with our friends. Scratch is MIT’s flagship educational toolkit used to teach Computational Thinking to children. No prior coding or Scratch experience is required for this Camp.
About Think Camp
Think Camp teaches key 21st century skills in fun and energising full day camps during school holiday periods. On Think Camp, computer work is interspersed with frequent snack breaks (two per day), outdoor games (weather permitting) and exciting competitions. Powerful thinking skills such as Design and Lean Thinking are taught throughout, using carefully designed activities that compliment computer work and give participants the tools needed to master the world of tomorrow.
- MakeCraft is a great introductory camp for those new to Think Camp and Minecraft. However, we are also prepared for and challenge the experienced Minecrafters!
- For students in Grade 5 who have a lot of Minecraft experience we recommend that they rather start their Think Camp journey with a PlayCraft or CodeCraft Camp.
- Children benefit more from this camp if they have had general computer experience working with a mouse and keyboard.
Please note that at Think Camp we use the Education Edition of Minecraft, all work done in this edition is not compatible with any other Minecraft edition. We regret therefore, that no worlds can be taken home. However, since the Education Edition is similar to the Windows 10 Edition, any skills learnt at Think Camp are transferable to the PC version of Minecraft.
