Blossom - STEM camps for Girls!


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/14/2020
This weeklong experience for 8-12 year olds creates a special community of joy and learning. Our STEM camps in Buffalo are held from 8am-4pm Monday through Friday at University at Buffalo. On campus in college classrooms, students are guided by an adult instructor through daily activities exploring science and technology. We maintain a 10:1 student/teacher ratio for safety and to optimize learning new skills with new friends.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

 

Coding

 

Want to make a video game? A music video? A cartoon? Students can bring their imaginations to life with Scratch coding!

 

Utilizing the technology of the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, our students learn how to set up their very own computer and Linux operating system at coding camp. From there, they're introduced to the world of open-source software and Scratch- a programming language specifically geared towards their age group.

 

We teach girls how to think like a programmer in an intuitive, kid-friendly way. Much like reading- after one learns to code, one can code to learn. The potential behind this new type of language is enormous and unstoppable.

 

Top skills learned in this class:

  • Scratch programming
  • Open source software
  • The Linux environment
  • Algorithm development
  • Creative problem solving

Every student takes home:

  • Raspberry Pi computer
  • Take-home version of Linux operating system
  • USB memory stick with her projects
  • A custom Blossom t-shirt
