Keeping it fresh

Regardless of the course or how many times a student takes it, we do not repeat previous projects.

Students are always challenged and, when they are ready, they work on a fresh new projects.

Detailed information

We combine text-based programming, building electronics, and designing games to teach real-world skills through self expression. This course is for children and teens aged 10+ who want to improve their Javascript coding ability and apply this to the creative world of art and game design!

This course introduces campers to Javascript ‘libraries’, and demonstrates the awesome things you can do with them. Students are given the freedom to interpret these libraries, in their own way to create projects. Past challenges in this course have included designing an Asteroid space game, programming 3D objects and a solar system, making an interactive spray paint tool, and constructing cardboard robots - to name a few!

Campers will leave this course with engineering skills, a more advanced understanding of coding concepts and functions, and finished projects that express their inner creativity. These projects demonstrate the real-world applications of coding to students, as well as provide a sense of accomplishment with daily take home results. 


Your child will learn:

  • Javascript-focused course, from beginner to advanced
  • Learning Javascript syntax and mathematical concepts to produce mesmerising art
  • Important computational thinking and skills
  • Applying creative problem-solving techniques to programming
  • How to express your creativity through coding
  • Industry examples of creative coding and digital art
  • Basic physical computing
  • Design and engineering skills to build your own creations

VIDEO | Holiday Camps

We think that our camps are super fun. But you shouldn't just take our word for it. We recently spoke to some of the blue{shift} teachers and students to find out more; watch our video to get a better idea of what makes a blue{shift} camp such a great adventure! 

FAQs:

  • Can I book individual days at a camp?
  • Which Creative Coding level should I sign my child up for?
  • My child doesn't have a laptop - will an iPad or tablet suffice instead?
  • Is there any specific software I should install in advance?
  • “The things I liked most about camp were proper teaching, creative approach and the fact that my daughter really learnt something while having fun”
