Campers will learn the fundamentals of computer science in the Python programming language—one of the most accessible and popular languages in both industry and research (even NASA uses it!). Kids will learn to code by making music using a program developed by Georgia Tech called EarSketch. At the end of the week, parents are invited to attend a code/music show, where your kids will show off all their hard work and sick beats!

Day Camp Safety Guidelines
All staff will perform a health screening at the beginning of each day and will be required to wear face masks.
Health screenings will be performed with all campers at check-in.
Camp sizes will be limited and campers will stay with their designated group (there will be no opening ceremonies or group games).
There will be breaks for campers to wash hands before and after the program, every 30-minutes during the program, and after transitioning from one activity to another.
Program space will be cleaned and disinfected before and after each camp.
