Codemakers is a day camp at the University of Regina for youth who will be entering grades 4 to 9 this fall.  It allows you to unleash your creativity using digital technology.  This project based program uses computers and other technology to create new marvels.  The program is based in a computer lab. We bring the tools, you bring the passion to create.  Qualified instructors support the different avenues but do not lead the group in a single direction as in traditional EYES camp.

Codemakers (Grade 4-6)

In this program you  will have mapped out lessons to help introduce to the software and hardware we will be working with. You will get a taste of everything! From 3D printing and design, to Robots and coding, you will get to dip your toes in a multitude of tech related topics.   It will be a balance between instruction, self development and challenges.

You will have the opportunity to:
– Develop your photo editing skills
– Design video games
– Create your own web pages
– Program your own apps
– Build Arduinos
– Use a Raspberry Pi
– and much much more.

This year the 7-9 program has EXPANDED. Campers will have access to tutorials but the program is self-directed with fewer instructor lead activities.  With a project based approach, you choose want you want to work on for the week!

1. Codemakers (Grade 7-9): Hardware

This week of camp will focus primarily on hardware, and will be very hands-on. Campers will have the opportunity to build and program robots, make their own electronic devices, and write computer programs to connect to their creations. This week of camp is perfect for any makers and builders that want to learn how to bring their ideas to life! The basics of electronics and programming will be examined through the use of Arduino, Processing, and Vex Robotics. Campers will also have to opportunity to use 3d printers to bring their creations into the real world.

2. Codemakers (Grade 7-9): Software

This week of camp will focus primarily on software. Campers will be coding their own video games, computer programs, computer animations, and beyond! We want to help campers find the intersection between their passion and programming. If you like music, you can use code to write your own songs. If you like art, you can generate your own artwork using code. Campers will learn to code in Game Maker, Processing, and other programs and will have the chance to connect their programs to the real world by using Raspberry Pi.
