DRONE CAMP: A SMASH HIT
Last summer’s brand-new Drone Camp (ages 9-13) proved to be incredibly popular. All initial camps sold out in just a few days, which resulted in extra camps being put on – which also sold out.
More than 400 kids attended one of the 31 Drone Camps held at 29 different venues across Australia, completing an incredible 2,500 drone missions.
Hayley Markham, Code Camp co-founder / COO and mother of three, said, “One of the most important drone missions we embark on at Code Camp involves project-based learning to use drones when searching for koalas to track their population numbers. Kids can also channel their inner David Attenborough and make a documentary film along the way.
“This is particularly critical learning for kids at a time when government officials have declared koalas endangered across much of eastern Australia, citing the impacts of drought, bush fires and habitat loss on the country’s dwindling marsupial population.
“We aren’t just teaching kids how to fly drones for fun, we are teaching them the importance of drone technology in society, educating them to be socially aware and in this instance, to grasp the importance of conservation efforts to ensure a healthy future for koalas.”
DJ CAMP: HIGH DEMAND FOR KIDS TO BE THE NEXT SUPERSTAR DJ
Created in collaboration with professional DJs, DJ Camp (ages 8-13) has been incredibly popular since launching. Here Australia’s next hottest young DJs of tomorrow take their first steps into the exciting world of mixing music to create unforgettable experiences.
Over two days, budding music makers learn from real DJs and producers how to create and code their very own mix, develop a DJ persona and brand, design their logo plus a poster and some cool merchandise. They then end on a high performing their own CODEchella track for their classmates.
“We start kids off at the beginning explaining what DJing is really all about, with song structure, counting beats and different genres,” said Ms Markham.
“Then it’s time to plug in and play around on the decks to get a grip on what each control does. Our talented instructors teach students everything they need to know to create awesome sounds.”
DC SUPER HEROES: LAST CHANCE TO CREATE YOUR OWN DC SUPER HERO GAME
For game creators of the future, Code Your Own DC Superhero Game (ages 7-12), will be on offer again for the last time. Here kids will design, code and create an awesome game with Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman.
“Experienced tutors assist kids using DC themed backgrounds and collectibles, special power-ups and even shrinking potions. Kids will use a mix of creative level design, storytelling and problem- solving,” said Code Camp co-founder Ben Levi.
Since 2013 Code Camp has inspired more than 100,000 kids in over 350 schools across Australia to unleash imaginative ideas through technology, so it’s worth checking out if you need a break from your offspring for a few days!
