South Tampa Camp Themes
Minecraft Mods and More!(Grades 1-8)
June 11-15, 9 am – 2 pm $275
Summon animals, build towers, make lightning strike, and more! Minecraft is a sandbox game that is designed to allow creative freedom for players while they find supplies (mining), build, and interact with other characters in the game. Students advance at their own rate during this camp, so beginners and more advanced students are both welcome. Students also spend time playing on a group server during class time to accomplish challenges and play mini-games!
Note: No Minecraft student IDs and passwords are required. We will provide full Minecraft access for camp.
**CANCELED** Star Wars (Grades 1-8)
June 18-22, 9 am – 2 pm $240
Star Wars has captivated children for 40 years with the technology, effects and amazing inventions used in “a galaxy far, far away”. Students learn about the forces around them, and have fun exploring the inventions of Star Wars. Discover the real-life adventures of NASA, control a droid, collaborate on projects, and learn code based on the Star Wars movies.
Robotics (Grades 1-8)
June 25-29, 9 am – 2 pm $240
Older grades assemble and program award winning LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots. Students learn the basics of hardware, software, control loops and sensing. Students team to complete challenges like following a line, infrared sensing, responding to touch and more.
Younger grades learn the basics of robotics by playing with Ozobot mini-bots. As beginner “programmers”, students learn how to connect the physical and digital worlds through very simple programming apps. Ozobots can sense color and follow lines to complete mazes and challenges. Students also study Makey-Makey, which gives them practice with circuits and programming their own musical instrument using everyday objects.
All ages complete group design and build projects and participate in innovative play that teaches persistence, adaptability, and communication skills.
