Summer STEM and Coding Camp

Sign up now for two weeks of coding fun!

The camp will be conducted by Ms. Jenny Sora (beloved computer teacher at PS 166) as she guides students through their explorations of a wide variety of STEM and Coding projects.

Camp is open to children entering 1st grade and up. It will be held at PS 166 (132 W 89th St) from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. the weeks of July 8 to 12 and July 15 to 19. Camp will run for two sessions of one week each and you can sign up for either week or both. Tuition is $600 per session. See a partial list of programs and resources toward the bottom of this page. Students will be exposed to a variety of STEM based activities. They will rotate through various groups and each activity will include a lesson and then creative play.

Students will create programs on Scratch, Code Monkey, Codesters and Code.org.  Scratch, Code.org and Lightbots are web-based programming sites where students can create their own sequenced programs, interactive stories, games, and animations. CodeMonkey provides practice coding with a real programming language to solve a variety of puzzles.  Codesters provides authentic coding experience where students learn to code in Python. These programs help learners think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively, all essential skills for life in the 21st century
