Apply: 2022 Summer Coding Camp Mentor

All Summer Camps are Virtual in Summer 2022

Mentors develop positive, encouraging relationships with students in a virtual team environment and serve as role models to support students’ career aspirations in technology. Mentors challenge students to collaborate and to solve any problems they encounter.

Summer Camps are twice a week - Mentors are expected to attend at least one session per week, preferably both.

Available Camps:

Creative Computing with Scratch In this course, students in 3rd - 5th grade are introduced to coding for the first time through Scratch. The Creative Computing Curriculum, designed at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is a collection of activities for an introductory creative computing experience using Scratch, a block-based visual coding language. The activities are designed to support familiarity and increasing fluency with computational creativity and computational thinking.

Javascript Game Development
In this course, students learn the fundamentals of javascript, such as variables, functions, conditions, and loops, while building their very own "space shooter" web game (see here for a game demo)!

Intro to Website Development
In this course, students are introduced to web programming languages HTML and CSS. Their first project is a website for a small business. No prior coding experience required.

Creative Project (JavaScript or HTML/CSS)
Students who have completed one of our beginner courses will have the opportunity to apply what they've learned and develop their original ideas into a real-world project. This camp combines past students from our JavaScript Game Development and Website Development courses.
