Full course description
When you learn to code, you’re not only learning the language of technology — you’re learning new ways to think and bring your ideas to life. The USF Everyone Can Code summer camp helps campers identify code in their everyday lives and teaches the basic principles of coding using Apple’s Swift Playgrounds. Campers will have the opportunity to LEARN coding basics, PRACTICE their skills through various puzzles and activities, APPLY what they have learned as they create with code, and CONNECT the experiences from camp to the real-world through problem solving and critical thinking. At the end of the week, campers will even design and prototype their own app using the skills they have learned. USF Everyone Can Code is intended to not only introduce coding concepts, but to also inspire young learners to think about how code might apply to their own futures. This camp requires access to an iPad with iPadOS 13.4 or later installed. This camp is intended for BEGINNERS with little to no experience in coding.
