The MADE is continuing our programming summer camp in 2017. The camp is a daily week-long session from Monday, June 19th to Friday, June 23rd at the museum at 3400 Broadway, Oakland, CA.
At the 2017 session, kids will create several video games using Scratch, the programming education tool from MIT. They’ll program virtual robots in Minecraft using the ComputerCraft mod and Lua programming language. They’ll also explore the history of video games. (Campers will not be playing Call of Duty or other mature-rated video games.)
- Instructors are professional software developers with teaching experience.
- Lunch will be provided, with vegetarian or kosher options available.
- The camp is capped at 12 campers to guarantee personalized attention.
- CPR & First-Aid certified staff are on site.
The age minimum is 9 years old. No previous programming experience is required or expected.
Flexible check-in for each day is between 9am and 10am. Pick-up is between 3pm and 4pm. Extended morning care from 8am to 9am and extended evening care from 4pm to 6pm is available on request.
Tuition for the week-long course is $499. This includes a $149 non-refundable deposit to hold your child’s spot at the camp. Parents and campers must agree to the Code of Conduct.
