Robotics

Hours: 8:30 am to 10:30am Monday through Friday, June 6th to June 24th, 2016

Scratch

Hours: 10:30 am to 12:30pm Monday through Friday, June 6th to June 24th, 2016

2015 Play with Robot

Lego NXT
In this camp, each student would make their robots using Lego NXT kits and they will learn how to make programs which make the robots move, make sounds and say some words! After students are get used to manipulate their robots, they will have many mathematical and entertaining activities with the robots. By making robots by themselves and doing various activities with robots, students will improve their creativity and problem-solving ability.

2014 Play with Scratch

Scratch

In this camp, we will teach Math functions, Science and problem through the use of Scratch programming language by the MIT Media Lab. Participants will learn how to solve problems using functions and science knowledge while making their own games by Scratch programming. This camp is geared toward grade 3-7 students who seek to learn with math and science related games that are lots of fun. Through this camp, participants will be able to grasp an understanding of the concepts of Math functions as well as a structural and systematical programming skill. Our pursuit of this program eventually is to improve our students’ problem solving and logical thinking and to provide participants with the opportunity to apply their knowledge towards creating their own products.

2012 Scratch Summer Camp

IMG_5421
GameStudio annually holds a two-week-long Summer Camp that teaches algebra and functions in math through the use of Scratch programming language by the MIT Media Lab. In this camp, participants will learn the concept of functions while making their own games by Scratch programming. This camp is geared toward grade 5-7 students who seek to learn math in fun ways. Through this camp, students will be able to grasp an understanding of the concept of functions as well as a structural and systematical programming skill. Our pursuit of this program eventually is to improve students’ mathematical-logical thinking and to provide them with the opportunities to apply their knowledge into various projects. You can find our program schedule in the following section.
