Camp Focus: Game Coding, Smart Phone Apps, Drone / Robot Wars, Minecraft Coding, 3D Animation – Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced (Ages 7 - 14 years)
Whether you are new to coding or have attended our previous camps, we have over 300 fun, hands on projects to help you advance to the next level in your Game Coding, Smart Phone Apps, Drone Wars / Robotics, Minecraft Modding & 3D Animation projects. Students tested on the first day and placed in the Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced group. Levels require about 15 - 30 hours before passing to the next level. Coding Belts are awarded when a level is passed. Teacher: Student ratio 1:8 (each group has a separate instructor.) All instructors college grads, background checked, CPR certified.
Q: Can absolute Beginners attend? Typing skills?
A: Yes. Beginners start with drag & drop, block based coding. No typing skills required.
Q: Do you group kids by ages?
A: Yes. Kids are placed in 7 - 10 years OR 11 - 14 years age group. Camps have multiple instructors.
Q: What if my child has attended coding / robotics camps before. Do you place them in a different skil groups?
A: Yes. Campers are assessed and placed in Beginners , Intermediate & Advanced groups and assigned projects at their level. Each group assigned a different instructor. Teacher / Student ratio is 1:8
Q: Can my child repeat the camps?
A: Yes. Campers can repeat upto 6 camps till they have passed out of Advanced. After completing each level, campers earn their next level Coding Belt (White, Yellow, Orange, Green etc.) Please see Coding Belt requirements in the Course Detail.
Q: Will my child need to bring a laptop or iPad?
A: No. We provide all the laptops, iPads and Robots.
Q: Sibling discounts?
A: Yes. 10% discount on 2nd & 3rd child.
iSTEM Labs Coding Belts
Just like martial arts, we incent kids to excel in learning by earning Coding Belts. A Coding Belt is an iSTEM Labs logo'd snap on wrist band with built in 4 GB flash drive to save their projects. There are 12 colored belt levels from White to Black Belt. White Belt is earned after the first camp. Each subsequent belt requires 20 to 30 hours of camp time and a test. There is no testing fee or belt fee.
Campers who already have a white or yellow belt will advance to the next belt.

Half Day Beginner, Inter, Advanced Coding Robotics Camp: $48 - AGES 6 - 14 yeas (kids grouped by age/skill)
Ever wanted to Code your own video games or Program robots? Whether you are brand new to coding or have some experience in programming, this Half day camp (ages 6 thru 14) will teach you to code at least two beginner or Intermediate level video games (based on your experience) using MIT Scratch, Blockly and other coding tools. You will also use Google Blockly to Program robots for dance moves and other missions that will teach you new coding skills. We follow Harvard / MIT based Paired Programming method where kids are paired to solve coding problems by sharing laptops, iPads and robots. They will learn core Coding skills like sequencing, problem decomposition, loops, conditional, event based logic, variables, functions and develop their critical, creative and teamwork skills.
No coding experience needed by Beginners. Intermediate & Advanced level students will be challenged with new projects they have never seen before.
