Aug 27 – Aug 31 Hackers (Grades 3-6) SUMMER OF STEAM 2018
GEOCACHING: HIGHTECH HUNT (morning)
Geocaching offers a family friendly way to teach your children about the wonders of the outdoors while combining a high-tech treasure hunt that can help engage your Hackers in the natural world. Geocaching uses handheld GPS units to find hidden "caches" in your neighborhood or out on the trails. Caches are containers of all sizes that may be camouflaged to blend into their surroundings. We will be using tech and problem solving skills to complete this fun and interactive treasure hunt all around Williamsburg.
MINECRAFT MODDING (afternoon)
Transform the world of Minecraft by learning how to write programs with the programming language called Python. Python is a great first language for any beginning or experienced programmer. It’s easy to read and write and it’s a powerful enough tool to create real computer programs. By integrating Minecraft with your own Python programs, you can take even more control of Minecraft and unlock even more of your creativity. By combining Python and Minecraft, you’ll be able to see the results of your awesome programs instantly in your Minecraft world.
