Apple Camp: A week of programs and coding

2:05:00 PM





Hey y'all! Hows it going?
This summer has been so eventful that I have fallen behind on pretty much everything lol. I just want to hit a time reset button and start the past few weeks over lol.




Anyway, the end of July was one of our coolest and funnest weeks! The older girls had the opportunity to attend Apple Camp at our local Apple store in Kansas City, MO. There they learned how to use different programs to practice coding and eventually, they were able to code their own Sphero robot! Not only did the girls learn neat tricks and how to code the robot, they also received a cute camp shirt, certificate and Apple bracelet. But honestly the best part about this camp was the fact that it was free lol.




The girls learned a lot from the knowledgeable and helpful staff. They offered help every step of the way while encouraging them to try new things. For their final project, the girls had to code their robot and have it tell a story. They decided to make their Sphero go on a trip around the world. Sparky (their sphero) started off in Phoenix and flew across the ocean to Thailand. Then he made is way to Italy. Due to some last minute changes, the girls had to pretty much re- code everything they worked on the day before so they missed a few things they had originally done. Over all they still did a fabulous job!

Here are a few pics from their week at Apple Camp and their final project video!




























 Another awesome thing about Apple is that they have daily (in most regions) kids hours, teacher talks and more! You can spend up to an hour and a half learning different tools, tricks and ways to use Apple products. Head over to https://www.apple.com/today/ to check your area for times and classes!
