Smartphone apps, robots, and video games — the world runs on code. Now kids can learn how to control technology creatively.
Children, ages 5 to 8 will design, play with and learn from robots from April 9-13 at Stepping Stones Coding and Robotics Camp to be held during April school vacation.
— an announcement from Stepping Stones Museum
Day campers at the Norwalk musuem will discover the basics of computer coding through interactive activities and games, plus have the opportunity to explore the museum’s many thrilling exhibits.
The week of electronic excitement for children ages 5 to 8 will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day during April vacation week from April 9 through April 13. Don’t need a full week? Sign up by the day!
This unique educational experience will challenge and teach students coding skills through fun, engaging and dynamic projects such as building circuits, making a binary necklace and even a battle-bot competition!
The program provides supportive, educator-led instruction followed by hands-on learning that will take the mystery out of technology. Young campers will gain technical skills along with confidence as they explore, create and problem-solve.
