Level I, Grades 4-7: July 11-15, 2016
Young Hacks Academy is a tech leadership camp for ages 9-12. A blend of computer programming, problem-solving, and teamwork, YHA focuses on how young people can use technology to solve today’s greatest local and global problems. Agents (campers) learn to build cool video games in Scratch that explore real-world issues like climate change, homelessness, and endangered wildlife. In addition, campers head outside for unplugged games like treasure hunts, riddle relays, and chain tag. No programming experience is required.
