Summer Camp
Python and Robotics

Marty the Robot is a real humanoid robot designed to teach kids about computer programming. Marty can walk, turn, dance, kick a football, and engage with young aspiring coders in ways that remote controlled cars and toys cannot.  S/he is a popular teaching tool in the UK and we've brought her to the US to share one of the most likable robots we've encountered!  All coders learn the principles of programming using our proprietary teaching curriculum, which is then translated into fun and interactive hands-on coding practice with Marty. Younger coders start with Scratch and move on to Python at their own pace. No previous coding experience is required.

This program is offered as a standalone one-week option (Level A)
or as a combined and progressively more advanced and in-depth two-week option (Levels A & B).

PYTHON & ROBOTICS GRADES 3-5

One Week $549 | Early bird $499
Two Weeks $1,079 | Early bird $979

Summer Camp
JavaScript & Robotics

Misty the Robot is a developer robot designed for programmers who want to test their ideas on a real-world AI platform. Misty has a high-resolution camera and face recognition capabilities with microphones and sensors to track positional information and the sounds of her environment. Misty also has an engaging personality!  She can express fear, love, goofiness, and control her arms and legs to wave, point, and dance. Coders learn computer programming using JavaScript and develop their own AI programs for Misty.  Previous coding experience is helpful but not required.

This program is offered as a standalone one-week option (Level A)
or as a combined and progressively more advanced and in-depth two-week option (Levels A & B).

JAVASCRIPT & ROBOTICS GRADES 9-10

Registration

Registration opens at 8am on Sunday, November 15, 2020

Early bird registration ends at 6pm on Friday, January 15, 2021


Bring a friend and you both save!  In addition to sibling discounts, we offer best buddy packages for friends who want to enroll in camp together.  We also offer easy pay-over-time options at checkout and scholarships to families in need. 

Covid-19

We expect to be able to offer a regular or reduced-capacity camp in Summer 2021 but our plans necessarily depend on public health restrictions in response to Covid-19. As of January 22, 2021, we are limiting summer camp enrollments to 25% of space capacity.

 

All About Us

CODEMAKERS offers summer coding and robotics camps to kids and teens in the Boston area.  Our coders learn the core principles of programming in a relaxed and fun environment and gradually build the technical skills needed to develop their own robotics and AI projects.  Summer camp sessions are taught in small groups by enthusiastic computer science and engineering majors and grad students.  We are locally-owned and operated.
