About the event

Monday, July 8 - Friday, July 12

Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Ages 8-13

Join us for a full week of hands-on learning as we dig into some exciting geology topics in the morning and have fun creating games using Python computer language in the afternoon. Campers will enjoy lunch and free-time from noon-1:00 pm (bring a bagged lunch and drink).

Our morning Geology program includes: 

- time at a nearby creek to observe geological formations and gather rock samples 

- rock analysis, identification, and mineral composition 

- earthquakes and tectonic plates

- volcanoes and lava flow

In the afternoon, campers will have fun creating games in this beginner level class using the popular and powerful Python computer language and the Raspberry Pi. Fundamental computer programming principles are taught step-by-step with each lesson building on the previous one enabling campers to create a fun, interactive game using their own design with images they create. Principles and techniques learned in these lessons have unlimited applications in not only gaming but in robotics, art, science, and engineering.
