At imaginationGuru, starting Monday, June 8, we offer camps focussed on chess, coding, and robotics. Camp takes place at our brand new Imagination Guru Academy located at the Montgomery Shopping Center. We are committed to providing our campers with learning and fun experiences. We are offering Chess Camp or Programing/3D Printing Camp, and also a Chess and Programing/3D Printing camp combo for campers who are interested in all subjects. Weekly camps run through Friday, August 28.
Chess. According to studies:
• Chess boosts brain power in kids.
• Chess improves IQ.
• Chess enhances arithmetical skills.
• Chess hones verbal skills.
• Chess sharpens critical thinking skills.
• Chess boosts emotional intelligence and psycho-social skills.
• Instruction is tailored to camper’s skill level, whether a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player.
Programing. Programing campers will have the opportunity to craft logic and to observe it unfold. They will have lots of fun creating their own Minecraft Mods and playing with them. They will also learn Scratch and create games with it. While doing this they will develop their creative and critical thinking.
3D Printing. We introduce our students to the printing and designing process. We use 3D printers as well as easy-to-use and fun polygonal 3D software. Our goal is to encourage important concepts like creativity, free election, innovation, and finally make our students understand that everything that is around us can be built! All campers get to take home their own printed work.
Camp runs Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Extended day from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. is available at no extra charge. Every Friday campers get pizza, and awards are given to students for achievements in chess and computers.
