Hardware Exploration (Age 6-8)

Hardware

CAMP OVERVIEW

Language: English

There are many electronics devices around us every day, what goes on behind them? Does your child like to open up your electronic toys and put them back together? Does your child like to tinker with things and build their own tools?

This course is designed for all the curious young children who love to explore the inner workings of things. From the earliest age, children are fascinated by the movement and lights of objects. To help students learn and explore movement, sounds and lights, this course foster this curiosity through the use of simple machines and basic electronics projects. Students learn about movement, force, resistance, circuits and many other concepts that are widely used throughout their lives.

This course uses the educational tool littleBits, an extensive library of electronic modules that snap together with tiny magnets.

CAMP HIGHLIGHTS

8:1 Ratio Guarantee

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.

Follow on Curriculum for Immersed Learning

What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
