This isn't your ordinary CS summer camp. pi-top makes computer science Summer Camp fun for everyone (even teachers)!
Most computer science camps revolve around building a robot and learning enough code to make it go. But we're here to shake things up! The pi-top CS Summer Camp has art, engineering, creativity, and collaboration.
We have taken the most creative lessons in Further and turned them into a Summer Camp curriculum - for camps from 1 to 3 weeks long, and for students of all skill levels.
What makes the camp fun for students?
Real-world Learning: Students will dive into exciting, real-world projects from creating robotic race cars to building a smart home, to combining art and technology in their very own zoetrope.
Engaging Activities: Activities for everyone, whether it’s using art skills for tunnel cards or competing with each other in a catapult competition, students will enjoy working together to create amazing projects.
Inclusivity and Collaboration: Lesson plans are designed to promote inclusivity and encourage collaboration between students.
Content for All Skill Levels: This Summer Camp content will be fun for students of all skill levels - from beginner to advanced.
What makes the camp easy and fun for teachers?
