Zaniac Summer Camps at UNCA

By ,

Enjoy Zaniac Summer Camps at UNCA!

Prepare your child with 21st century skills. Camps for students in Grades 3-8!
Camp dates and themes include:

June 27-July 1
UNCA Computer Lab

Morning: Python Coder                                   
Afternoon: Going Green with Minecraft

Coding: Python Coder!
Students will learn about turtles—little arrows students use to program. Students will use turtles to learn loops, methods to make drawing numbers/shapes easier, and conditionals which change the way the turtle will move based on what they tell it to do. These techniques will help students learn how python works, and how to program, while keeping it fun. Camps for Kids in Grades 3-5 and 6-8.

Game-Based Learning: Go Green with Minecraft 
Using the popular Minecraft Education Edition, our campers will go on a journey into the world of environmental sustainability and explore components such as sustainable homes, managing waste products, clean electricity generation, responsible forestry, and more. They will build their own hydropower plant and learn that building a sustainable future actually empowers the economy and quality of life! Camps for Kids in Grades 3-5 and 6-8.

July 11-15
UNCA Classroom
Morning: Interactive Engineering

They will discover that they have the talent and potential for designing and improving technologies. Camps for kids in grades 3-5 and 6-8.

Engineering: Advanced Robotics

There will be a specific drop-off/pick-up location on the UNCA campus. A uniformed Zaniac instructor will meet the campers at the drop-off location, escort them directly to the camp location, and then at the end of camp will escort them back to the pick-up location.
