Introduction to Processing Camp
Monday, July 31, 2017 9 AM - 4 PM
Processing is an open source programming language and environment used to create images, animations, and interactive programs. Processing is an ideal programming language for an introduction to traditional text-based programming. it was initially created as a tool for non-programmers to create visual and artistic works without needing a mathematics background. processing is highly interactive, allowing the students to get immediate visual feedback from their programs. This encourages the students to experiment and to try things out just to see what happens. Processing also allows for a more systematic approach to programming when it's time to organize and structure those skills learned from "just playing around".
As part of the camp, each child will receive a t-shirt, a certificate of completion, a CD containing the most current version of the Processing program, and numerous tutorial files to use at home.
This camp is geared for children ages 11-18. While there are no requirements for this camp, please understand that this is an introduction to text-based programming with the intent of developing problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.
Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided, however campers will need to bring their own lunch. Supervision will be provided during the lunch hour. Please contact us if other arrangements need to be made.
