Code to Create Program Overview

The CreationCamp program teaches students the expectations of coding and SEL. The program does this by bringing in real-world creators (app-developers, engineers, innovators, game-designers, and entrepreneurs) working in the industry to teach students virtually how to code applications, video games or build prototypes of real world technological innovations. The students are also taught 21st century skills to problem-solve through the projects.

 

The program aims to introduce students to various career pathways that utilize coding and SEL. The CreationCamp program's pedagogical approach is centered around 21st century skills and global competencies. Students will learn design thinking frameworks, entrepreneurial mindset, growth mindset and many other skills.
