Camp Outline

At Computhink, we believe that the best way to learn to program is to learn it the fun way! The coding activities that students do while they learn must make sense and be relevant to our students so that they will want to learn how to do it.

In the Minecraft (Education Edition) world, we encourage our student’s innate curiosity and interest and assign them challenges that have to be solved by code. Students will write code to solve puzzles or build structures with a personal robot/ agent.

Joining this camp will help spark the interest in coding and computational thinking, and inspire students to want to try out their newfound skills. Students will learn the basics of coding and help them gain essential Computational Thinking skills. The class sizes are kept small at 6 students per class to ensure teachers can spend time helping individual students.

Learning Tools

The Minecraft CodeThinker Camp is a specially curated camp for the Holidays. We want to help engage children in a challenging and fun way during their holidays.

On each day of the camp, students will be taught new programming concepts, and practice how to apply them in their daily coding challenges. Students will be grouped into classes with similar ages and capabilities. Class sizes are kept small at 6 students per class to ensure teachers can spend time helping individual students.

 

1. Computhink Student Portal

Computhink Student Portal is Computhink’s proprietary system for our student’s learning needs, where students will log in every day, and find notes, exercises, short videos, and video recordings explaining concepts for the day.
