We experience computers and digital creations every day. It is not enough to just know how to use a computer anymore. Creating, developing computational thinking and the ability to personalize & customize applications to solve your problems are needed skills today. It is no surprise then that Computer Science represents the fastest growing segment of jobs in all STEM fields. Experts believe that this field is impacting roughly 80% of all STEM jobs directly or indirectly. Programs are designed to engage young minds and help them advance from being merely computer users to creators. This camp will consist of two workshop programs, Minecraft™ and Website Design. See below descriptions and schedule; 11-14 ages will be offered more advanced content.
