Computer Science is the fastest growing profession . . .
in the science, technology, engineering, or math fields. Yet only 8% of STEM graduates earn a computer science degree. A tiny minority are from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our camps give kids the full hands-on computer science experience. They build robots, learn the components, write the software and upload to our robots so they see how devices work from parts to completion. Campers get to keep their robots and have the computer programming skills to further engage with their robots at home. Often kids come to camp intimidated by technology but leave feeling proud and confident. We offer three levels of camp: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3.
Due to popular demand we have begun teaching our Home Hacker Camp curriculum at schools and other summer camp programs throughout the year. We’ve also made our classes available online for individuals, homeschoolers, private schools or any group learning environment. Whether you are interested in participating in a class or holding a class, we can help.
If you would like to hold your own programming and robotics class or camp we have made our curriculum available to homeschool groups, schools or those who want to host a camp in your area.
Each Home Hacker builds, programs, and interacts with their very own robot which they get to take home and keep. They will also build a home based automation gadget with sensor technology.
At the end of the camp, Home Hackers take their projects home allowing the fun and learning to continue. They will have all of the code, skills, software, and components to continue on their learning journey.
Don’t miss out on the exciting, innovative technology camp in Asheville – & beyond!
“…Our son, Holden, came home from camp the first night and proclaimed that his new passion was “coding!” And while I confess I know little about what that actually means, I do know enough to be thrilled that he has discovered an arena that may well shape his future!”
~ Amy R.
“Zach was so jazzed about camp; he just came unglued. Since then he has constantly been on the computer learning more about Arduino.”
~ Stephanie B.
“My son Joseph is on the autism spectrum. He attended the Home Hacker camp this summer and loved the entire experience, it has given him a new level of confidence in himself and his abilities. His love of robotics and programming has continued and is already thinking about a career in robotics.”
