Descriptions

Option A: Good morning! Build Your Own 7-inch touchscreen, all-in-one, computer system. Usable, portable, and Linux based with keyboard and stand. This computer will be a mobile and effective way for kids to try all kinds of programming without the need to use mom’s or dad’s computer. Powerful enough for learning on Scratch or the command line. This is an excellent engineering project, a powerful Python learning tool, and is web ready.

Lunch break: bring your favorite meal and snacks from home. Enjoy a quick lunch break and then stretch your legs with a little walk around the block.

Afternoon: Codecrafters will be interacting with a very cool Minecraft coding platform, for kids aged 8+, that encompasses everything kids need to safely build, modify and run their own Minecraft mods with Java.

A versatile code editor starts out with drag-and-drop Java and then transitions to typed code gradually, in a single environment. Kids will love this learning platform and begin to learn the programming language behind the popular game!

Option B: 
Good morning! Rule Your Room with LittleBits! With this kit, your kids can now transform any boring old object into an awesome, interactive invention. It gives kids the magic inventor’s touch! Codecraft Lab mentors will bring the fun, patience, and experience to assist workshop participants in the creation of multiple projects that make their room their own over 3 days of STE(A)M fun and power play!
