What will you learn on this course?

This special digital camp introduces young learners to creative, scientific exploration within a playful and fun environment. Learners will create their own googley eyed egg monster or scary fluffy creature from craft materials, then they will bring the creature to life by programming Arduino microprocessors and working with LED’s, sounds and sensors.  The first half of the course will involve creating the creature and the second half will be learning to code and working with electronics.
