Host your own Robotics & Programming  class or camp using Home Hacker Camp curriculum and kits.  The materials are available to homeschool groups, schools, after school programs, clubs, camp programs, or anyone that wants to host a class or camp in your own area!

We offer printed and online materials to the instructors, as well as, supply kits for the soldering projects. 

If you desire guidance on hosting/teaching the course, instructors have the option to participate in a “Teach the Teacher” class to help you get up to speed on the course more quickly!

“Teach the Teacher – Mini Course” 

This condensed two part session goes over the essentials of the course.  It walks the instructor through the curriculum, gives them details about the course, course flow, videos, gotcha’s and tips.  This also gives the instructor the opportunity to ask any questions they might have about the course setup, materials, flow, etc.  This course is not designed to teach the teacher how to program, although some aspects of programming are discussed. The “Teach the Teacher – Mini Course” is 3 hours long.  It is broken into two – 1.5 hour sessions.  

2020 Schedule – Teach the Teacher Mini Course

Live, Instructor Led, Online Sessions:

  • Session 1:  9:00 – 10:30:  Tuesday, April 28 & Thursday, April 30 
  • Session 2:  11:30 – 1:00:  Monday, Aug 03 & Tuesday, Aug 04

This course helps the teacher become familiar with the materials and get guidance on the course to help lead a smooth and successful class.  This course will save the instructor course preparation time. 

“Teach the Teacher – Full Course” 

The Teach the Teacher – Full Course goes into more course detail and reviews instruction at a more in depth level.  It walks the instructor through the curriculum, gives them details about the course, provides more details about specific lessons, course flow, videos, gotcha’s and tips.  

The primary difference in this course versus the “mini” course is that in this course we walk through and do many (but not all) of the programming objectives with the instructors and talk about specific details of the lessons.  This course provides more step-by-step guidance and goes more in depth into the materials.

This course also gives the instructor the opportunity to ask any questions they might have about the course setup, materials, flow, etc.  The “Teach the Teacher – Full Course” is 8 hours long.  It is broken into four – 2 hour sessions.  

2020 Schedule – Teach the Teacher Full Course

  • Session 2:  9:00 – 11:00:  Mon – Thurs, Aug 03 – Aug 06

These sessions are geared for course instructors that feels more comfortable with having someone walking them through the course materials in a more detailed fashion.  This course will save instructors course preparation time.
