      kidOYO Summer 2018 [Stony Brook University] July 23rd - July 27th *Wk4*

      SUMMER @ STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY, COMPUTER SCIENCE DEPT. JULY 23rd - JULY 27th 9:00am to 4:00pm (Ages 8 - 16) This program requires the student to bring a laptop.   kidOYO summer camps evolve year to year. In 2013 it was all about Minecraft Modding in Java. In 2017, Roblox Studio and Lua programming took over. Technology changes, and kidOYO changes too. Every kidOYO summer camp is designed as its own 1 week experience. Kids participating will learn from our mentors how to write their own programs in multiple languages, including beginner languages like Scratch, as well as more robust real world project-development languages like Python, Java, html, css, Javascript, Lua, C variants, CAD programs and more. The language is not the priority, helping kids use their creative imagination and giving them access to the methods of self-led learning is. Summer learning differs from our semester programs in that it is focused on learning via play, using the purpose of summer fun to propell student motivation in this area of learning. All kids in our care will learn to program in multiple languages, and will produce a portfolio of project-work that they will be able to show to parents as part of a student-owned portfolio, as well as during "Demo Day" that concludes each week of camp. kidOYO summer camp weeks never produces the same experience twice so students can choose from attending single weeks or multiple weeks. Each week will allow kids to personalize their own experience, and gain knowledge that will progress from one week to the next. Often, kidOYO mentors are prototyping new interactive learning games with students. Kids will not only learn from, but will learn with CS student-mentors from top University CS programs in the Nation. Many kids will choose to engage physical computing projects bringing coding and hardware engineering together in an experience. Circuitry, sensors, motors, CAD programs, 3D printing, and many unique prototyping experiences await their engagement. Our goal at kidOYO is not defined by CS, STEM, or any other such term. Our goal is self-led creativity that connects real world skills to empathy so that kids can start seeing problems in the world around them that they are equipped to provide solutions for. This is the future of learning, and it happens every summer at kidOYO.   Who Are kidOYO Mentors? kidOYO Mentors are a lot of different types of people.  Some are software developers ( -in use by school districts across New York.)
