kidOYO summer camp kick off in June

With some of us already dreaming of summer, it is not too early for parents and students to think about summer camp options. 

Once again the Department of Computer Science (CS) and kidOYO have teamed up to offer computer science classes to Long Island families. kidOYO’s Summer Experience at Stony Brook kicks off June 26, 2017 and includes a variety of lessons for students interested in technology. Students will learn 3D design and printing, Web development, Python, Java, Javascript, green screen filming/editing, Scratch, and many more industry-leading programs.

Stony Brook University’s CS department not only provides facilities for the summer camp to take place but 20 student mentors from the department, many of whom volunteered for kidOYO in the past and are now instructors, work with the campers.

kidOYO is a company that produces educational infrastructure for K-12 classrooms to promote computer science education in elementary and secondary schools. They also work extensively with universities to expand opportunities for students and staff to build collaborative relationships with families, corporate employers, and local communities.

In total, KidOYO will be conducting four weeks of summer camps at Stony Brook this year. No experience is necessary for students to register. 

They have also tentatively schedule a mini-camp for teachers and administrators in July. This camp is a great opportunity for a teacher who is tasked with bringing coding into the classroom.
