Throughout the week, there will be highs and lows, frustrations and moments of triumph, but new lessons will be learnt, ideas will be tested, limits will be pushed and lives will be changed forever.
Day 1: Build a Robot
Campers will learn to build and code a robot using Lego Mindstorms EV3. They will use sensors to program it to move/ stop and other movements.
Day 2: Learn to Code
Campers will learn to code using Scratch 2.0. They will be creating their own animation depicting an alternate ending of Marvel's Infinity War, and also code their own "Chase the Cheese" game.
Day 3: Intro to Design Thinking
They will learn what it means to identify problems, and come up with potential solutions. They will start pitching their ideas and form teams to create a business plan.
Day 4: Entrepreneurship
Campers will learn what it means to really build a business, from interviewing people, to planning their marketing strategy and deciding on a revenue model.
Day 5: Pitch Day!
They will fine-tune their proposal, put the finishing touches to their pitch, and pitch to a panel of judges! They'll end the week with lots of fun and laughter, and a better understanding of yourself and the power they have to change the world!
