What to expect?

Whether you are joining block-based / textual programming or Maker Robotics camp, each camp will cover the following in-depth:

  • Coding fundamentals

  • Engineering principles

  • Understanding of solving a real-life problem with technology

  • Design session in breakout teams

  • Building multiple unique projects

  • Alpha and Beta Testing

Making it a SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL Experience!

Code-it Hacks has been running non-stop virtual camps since the school closure was announced in March. During this time we learnt many lessons. To ensure the most impactful learning experience we have structured our camps per our learnings. Here are some of our findings:

  • 8 students in a virtual class is the magic number to ensure everyone gets enough time during the camp

  • A ratio of 1:4 teacher to student is the most impactful

  • Kids ages 6 and under do feel a screen time learning fatigue

  • An hour is too little time to run the camp and more that two hours is too much screen fatigue

  • Group team-based activities in breakout sessions provide students means to connect and give them purpose in a contactless learning environment

  • Friday is our testing and presentation day. Students work towards this goal all week. They are taught to provide constructive feedback to team mates. Conduct alpha and and Beta testings and taught how to receive feedback to improve their code
