Event description

Description

We’re thrilled to be coming to Kelowna again this summer! Our camps are offered in partnership with UBC Okanagan, iSTAND, and NSERC.

In this week-long camp, we will spark our student's imaginations and foster their creativity as they design, create and iterate their very own tech accessories! Campers will also learn how to code using Blocks and Java script to create wearable tech using the BBC Micro:Bit. These powerful devices are small, and wearable! They feature LED displays, an accelerometer, compass, and so much more! Let your imagination run wild when using these Microbits, whether they make a flashing heart, smiley/frowny face, games from sensors or classic games like rock, paper, scissors! Fabrics, circuits, lights, and sewing will be used to create one of a kind decorative and techie fashion pieces. With a Micro:Bit, students can make fashion scoreboards or make a game of their own design, students will have fun as they learn how to make sounds, and add movement and/or lights to their clever blinky inventions.

This camp is perfect for campers that want to be Creators. Campers and their parents will be amazed what will be accomplish at the end of this exciting, hands-on week of Art/Tech Maker Extravaganza!
