Game Development w/ Machine Learning


Date: July 20, 2020 – July 24, 2020
Time: 10 am – 12 pm
Min age: 11+
Level: Intermediate

As the driver behind everyday tools like search engines, spam filters, and digital assistants, artificial intelligence is all around us. This camp will introduce students to the concept of machine learning – a aspect of artificial intelligence that focuses on training a computer model to complete a task independently through trial and error. Students will learn to create data sets and develop, train, and reward a model to make browser based games!

What will students learn?
Students will train simple machine-learning models on custom data sets they’ll create, and use them to create and play interactive games!

Who is the course appropriate for?
This camp is best for older students, with some experience in web development languages - HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

What will campers "take home?"

Campers will end the week with a better understanding of key programming concepts, vocabulary, and projects to share.

What time do campers meetup online?
The best of Codecraft summer camps, meeting at 10 AM EST, two hours daily for one week. Broken down into bite sized chunks, small groups of campers meet online to work together on fun and focused computer science projects.

How many campers in each online session?

To provide a premium learning experience we keep camps exclusive. With up to just 8 campers, our Instructors can help the campers get to know each other and the material. We aren’t new to this. As researchers backed by the National Science Foundation, Codecraft Works has been developing the best experiences and discovering how to balance our desires for socialization and impactful, synchronous instruction, for years now.

How does online summer camp work?

Codecraft camps online strive to provide a classic summer camp experience, without a highway commute! Campers join small groups and a Codecraft Instructor each day and develop computer science skills, new friends, and explore technology. We take a little time for brain breaks, encourage group collaboration, and foster socialization to complement the learning experience. During the week, they’re guided through building and iterating individual projects, culminating in a demo of their work for friends and family at the end of the camp. Participation develops both technical and soft skills, beneficial for future confidence and communication.
