E-Design Codemakers – Grades 4 to 9 – Regina – 2017

E-Design 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.

You will have the opportunity to:
– Design and print 3D objects
– Build and program robots
– 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.

The difference between the 4-6 program and the 7-9 program is the structure.  The  4-6 program will have mapped out lessons to help introduce to the software and hardware we will be working with.  It will be a balance between instruction, self development and challenges.  The 7-9 program 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.  Qualified instructors provide opportunities to learn new skills and have developed the program to match a broad range of skills and interests.  You simply order from a tech menu your desired week.

The weeks of camp are:
July 3-7*
July 10-14
July 17-21
July 24-28
July 31st-August 4th
