Time: 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm EST
Min age: 12+
Level: Intermediate

In JavaScript for Beginners Part 1, students will gain familiarity with what JavaScript is, what it can do, and how it fits into web development. They’ll learn what it means to think like a programmer and try their hand at writing their first lines of JavaScript code, creating fun projects for parents and friends to play using variables, functions, and operators. Last but not least, no course for beginners would be complete without information and strategy on the types of errors you can get and what you might do to correct them.

Who is the course appropriate for?

JavaScript can be more difficult to learn than related languages like HTML and CSS. Before learning JavaScript, students are strongly advised to be familiar with at least these two languages first, and have some experience creating with code. 

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 3 PM 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.
