School’s (Almost) Out Camps

9-13 October 2017

Special Promotion: if you sign up 2 or more students together, take $50 off your order!

For ages 12-15 and Ages 15-18

(Difficulty level will be scaled according to age group!)

Learn the ins and outs of design thinking in our Become a High-Tech Maker camp! Students will learn about the technologies and techniques used in prototyping. Students will design products using software such as Inkscape and Tinkercad, and will then have a chance to bring these to life using the laser cutter and 3D printer. Students will be able to take home the projects they make with the laser cutter and 3D printer.

  • 1:5 Instructor-Student Ratio Maximum
  • Monday-Friday, 3-6pm
  • Gain experience with Inkscape, RetinaEngrave, Tinkercad, and Makedo
  • Take home the projects made with the laser cutter and 3D printer
  • Prerequisites: helpful to have previous coding and electronics experience, but unnecessary
  • Pricing: $529 inclusive of GST

Learn fundamental programming concepts while creating generative art and animations in our Become a Code Artist camp. Students will learn how to use Python, one of the most popular – yet robust – programming languages for beginners. Students will start off creating simpler digital art projects and will then progress to more complex animations.

  • 1:5 Instructor-Student Ratio Maximum
  • Monday-Friday, 3-6pm
  • Learn Python, the turtle module, and Processing software
  • The outcomes are digital art and animation projects that students can add to their portfolio
  • Prerequisites: helpful to have previous Python or other coding experience, but unnecessary
  • Pricing: $529 inclusive of GST

Ages 10-12

 

Learn to prototype with the micro:bit microcontroller while creating fun projects in our Become a Digital Maker camp! As students become more familiar with programming and electronics components over the course of the camp, projects will become more involved to reflect the knowledge they are learning. Each day, students will build a project such as a musical keyboard, inchworm, remote-controlled car, and more! Students will get to keep their projects at the end of the camp.

  • 1:5 Instructor-Student Ratio Maximum
  • Monday-Friday, 3-6pm
  • Gain experience with micro:bit and external electronics components
  • Take home your projects and the micro:bit kit we provide during camp to continue the tinkering
  • Prerequisites: none
  • Pricing: $619 inclusive of GST

Ages 7-10

 

Learn how electronics components work by using littleBits to create fun projects in our Become a Tech Enthusiast camp. Students will become familiar with hardware inputs and outputs, developing an understanding of how technologies work. Students will also get a chance to use robotics kits and other tech tools over the course of the camp. Students will be able to keep their littleBits projects at the end of the camp.

  • 1:5 Instructor-Student Ratio Maximum
  • Monday-Friday, 3-6pm
  • Gain experience with littleBits, robotics, and other tech tools
  • Take home your projects and the littleBits kit we provide during camp to continue the tinkering
  • Prerequisites: none
  • Pricing: $619 inclusive of GST

microCamp

19-20 October 2017

Ages 10-13

Learn to prototype with the micro:bit microcontroller while creating fun projects in our 2-day microCamp! Students will become familiar with programming concepts and electronics components in the process of building their projects. By the end of the camp, students will have made 2-3 projects that they can take home.

  • 1:6 Instructor-Student Ratio Maximum
  • 2-day camp running on 19 & 20 of October: choose our AM session (9:30am-12:30pm) or PM session (2pm-5pm) — please note that you have to stick with AM or PM on both days
  • Gain experience with micro:bit and external electronics components
  • Take home your projects
  • Prerequisites: none
  • Pricing: $199 inclusive of GST

Please note that we will confirm that the October School’s Almost Out camp you signed up for is running by 2 October and confirm that the October microCamp you signed up for is running by 12 October. Certain camps may not run if there are not enough sign-ups. In the event that the camp you paid for is not running, you will be able to switch into a camp that is running or we will refund you through the same payment method you provided.

If you have any questions, concerns, or are looking for suggestions for your student, feel free to contact us at hello@tinkercademy.com.
