Apple’s Summer Camp program is open for registration once again. With three tracks to choose from that are made up of 3, 90-minute sessions. Kids attending will have the option of choosing from Coding with Sphero Robots, Beat Making and Songwriting with GarageBand and Telling Stories with Clips. Apple’s Clips session replaces iMovie for the storytelling track.
Coding with Sphero Robots:
In this three-day session for kids ages 8-12, we’ll introduce the fundamentals of coding using Sphero robots. Each day Campers will learn a new coding concept and practice problem-solving skills. They’ll partner up for fun activities to program their Sphero to change colors, create sounds, complete challenges, and more. Then they’ll apply their coding skills to design their own games.
Beat Making and Songwriting with GarageBand:
In this three-day session, kids ages 8-12 will discover the magic of beat making and songwriting. They’ll start by exploring basic elements of song structure and how beats create the foundation of a song. Campers will get hands-on as they create music using Touch Instruments, add vocals, and fine-tune their creations with GarageBand on iPad. On day 3, they’ll share their songs with the group.
Telling Stories with Clips:
Future filmmakers ages 8-12 will explore the creative process of telling stories using video, photos, and music. Campers will brainstorm and storyboard their ideas. They’ll get hands-on in groups to capture short videos, edit and enhance their shots with fun graphics and filters, and add opening and closing titles in the Clips app on iPad. On the final day, they’ll present their video stories.
