Spring 2018 afterschool programming
At Zero Day Camp, kids have fun while learning the fundamentals of computer science. We focus on the creative and problem-solving aspects of computer science, and using the tools of computing to understand the world around us. All skill levels are supported and instruction is tailored to meet your child where they are.
Mondays: Interactive Theater & Story Telling
In this 9 session class, campers will work in groups to develop a theatrical production starting with developing a storyline and culminating in a finished piece. Campers will explore theatrical and multimedia tools such as Scratch, video, live acting, and stop motion animation as well as craft and making skills such as puppetry and sewing to develop their final projects. Projects will be camper driven with final projects presented during a mini-festival at the final class.
