Introduction to Programming (Age 8~12 ).
As young people create and share their projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
Critical Thinking and Systems Thinking
As they learn to program in this camp, young people become engaged in critical reasoning and systems thinking. In order to build projects, students need to coordinate the timing and interactions between multiple “sprites” (programmable moving objects).
The ability to program interactive input provides students direct experience with sensing, feedback, and other fundamental systems concepts.
我們讓參加者透過動手設計 (design and create) ，將科學、工程、多媒體、藝術及音樂等跨學科知識，融會於一個充滿互動合作、寓遊戲於學習的環境。透過創作，青少年會不斷探索多種實踐意念的可能性，反覆試驗不同解決困難的方法讓他們加強構思解難的能力，以及將科技融入藝術當中，讓他們發揮和表達無窮的創意能力，並溝通及提升語言表達能力。
“ Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer...because it teaches you how to think.” - Steve Jobs
Digital Art (Age 9~12 ).
Creating great class projects no longer just means writing a great paper. With access to numerous multimedia tools, you can now infuse your class project with more innovation and creativity ways. Our Classes teach concepts and techniques that can be applied to any workflow—for print, school projects, or presentation that will find their way into other applications. In our classes you will learn how to make your presentation unique or create a digital art and make your projects more stands out in your class.
Adobe Illustrator can be used to accomplish many different design tasks, from illustration to app development. This course demonstrates core concepts and techniques that can be applied to any workflow—for print, the web, or building assets that will find their way into other applications. Instructor Maggie explains the elements that make up vector graphics (paths, strokes, and fills) while showing how to use each of the drawing tools, and demonstrates how to combine and clean up paths and organize them into groups and layers. The course also covers text editing, working with color, effects, and much more.
Required Basic computer knowledge (how to use mouse, save files) and have Software Adobe Illustrator--- you can download FREE trial for one month or you can buy student version.
