This spring the Fleet Science Center and ThoughtSTEM have come together to bring you the ultimate week of camp that brings computer science and coding to life. Explore technology in ways you’ve never experienced before. Each day you will learn how to create a new technology, like learning how to design your own light up electrical circuits to embed into origami, paper airplanes, gift cards and even your clothes! Then, create your own virtual worlds, Android mobile apps and Minecraft mods to play with your friends when you get back to school! You do not have to take all of the courses, but taking more than one will put you on the way to becoming a true Tech Genius!
