Filling the unstructured time of summer vacation in meaningful ways can be challenging when your kids are in middle school. They’re too young to drive or get a job and too old for most summer programs.
At KodeConnect, we invite you to make this a summer to remember by registering your child in middle school for our summer camp program. Every child who attends our day camp learns problem-solving and teamwork skills working alone and with peers while learning coding concepts. The earlier your son or daughter explores an interest in coding, the more the lessons will remain throughout life.
Zero Robotics Competition
In this competition, students create code for programs that operate SPHERES satellites. These are the robots that will move about inside the International Space Station (ISS) based on code developed by the students. Additionally, each team at the Zero Robotics Competition creates games for the purpose of developing strategy that allows them to compete in more tasks against other teams.
The final event of the competition involves the regional finalists from earlier events competing in the championship round. This takes place virtually aboard the ISS where an astronaut controls the robots using student-written code.
Field Trip to Tech Companies
Students enrolled in SOCK camp will visit several tech companies. This gives them the opportunity to see how coding works in a real-world scenario as well as to ask questions of our hosts. As a recent example, students enrolled in our KodeClub visited Slalom Consulting on April 18th, a school vacation day. They worked in partnership with engineers to learn how to solve day-to-day problems and learn more about the technology field in general.
Time for Outdoor Activities Too
Innovation isn’t something that stays within walls or buildings. Getting outside and moving allows for creativity to flow. We have various STEM activities we do outside including building a strategy for the robotics competition. We also understand the need to get outdoors for exercise or just to enjoy nature and have built that into our program.
