Week 1: July 4- July 7 (4 days) STOP MOTION ANIMATION
AcadeCoders will learn about different animation techniques, with a focus on stop-motion animation. They will use their creativity to come up with simple stories that can be conveyed with stop-motion animation. They will use a variety of props to create their own stop-motion videos, with a longer video created by the end of the week.
Week 2: July 10- July 14 LEGO SPIKE ROBOTICS
During the first Lego robotics week, Coders will learn a variety of techniques for building and modifying Lego robots. They will follow detailed instructions, and collaborate with peers to optimize their designs and complete challenges.
Week 3: July 17 – July 21 BLOXELS 2D VIDEO GAME DESIGN
Bloxels is a fun video game design software that allows users to make custom levels, characters, and enemies for a platformer game . Coders will have an opportunity to design, animate, play their game, and the games of other coders.
Week 4: July 24 – July 28 3D PRINTING WITH TINKERCAD
AcadeCoders will learn about 3D design and its applications. They will use the popular software TinkerCAD to design a variety of different objects, completing challenges and learning new techniques, culminating in a more detailed design project to be printed by our 3D Printer.
Week 6: August 8 – August 11 (4 days) LEGO SPIKE ROBOTICS
A second week of Lego Robotics will offer Coders a refresher course from the previous week. Then, Coders will complete increasingly difficult challenges as they learn to create, test, and improve their robot using the design cycle. We will finish the week with an obstacle course and a BattleBot gladiator ring.
Week 7: August 14 – August 18 HACKATHON
Coders will have the opportunity to channel their aptitudes into constructive skill-building scenarios by addressing real-world problems. Coders will work cooperatively this week to participate in a Hackathon and spend the week collaborating and coding to create a solution to a problem.
