KidsTech Camp Details

We're excited about Tech too!

Learn Safety!

We’ll make sure your kids are safe while they have a blast playing, coding and learning! We have extra masks to hand out, eco-friendly sanitizing stations by all of our computers, devices, games and robots and are only hanging out in small groups inside and outsite with lots of elbow room. 

KidsTech Instructors!

Our amazing GenTech instructors are all total geeks who know the latest programming languages and all the latest techie things. They’re computer science and engineering majors, tech specialists and aerospace engineers. And they’re funny, friendly and can get a little crazy, too! Check us out here!

Cool Coding

In this awesome camp kids learn industry standard coding – the same coding used by large tech firms today! They’ll discover file systems, terminal usage, and various IDE and use their new skills to develop projects and games. 

Camps are open to all ages and experience levels, from beginners to advance coders. Those new to coding might use MinecraftEDU to help them understand programming concepts like conditionals, variables, and array.

For more advanced kids, camp projects feature integration with raspberry pi microcomputers, github, and terminals. 

  • Programming Syntax
  • Typing
  • Troubleshooting
  • Python
  • JavaScript
  • HTML / CSS

Kids learn to design, build and program robots in this radical camp! 

They’ll level up their coding skills to zoom Sphero RVRs around and learn about microprocessing with CyberBots. Between the robot races and occasional crashes, it’s a crazy fun time! 

After they design and build various robots kids program them to perform zany tasks like follow a maze, race and even battle!  They’ll make new friends and engage in friendly competition while applying their new skills.

Using Parallax MicroBits, kids learn binary and explore electricity, design methods and circuitry, manage servers and more! They’ll engineer gadgets like a step counter, jukebox, thermometer, battery tester, timer, sensor, or make a  magic eight ball. 

Not only will kids be having a blast, they’ll gain knowledge about the small, very powerful computers found in millions of smart devices, jet airplanes and even used in “smart city” infrastructure! It’s an invaluable skill to have as we enter the age of IoT devices. 

Understanding microcomputers is an essential skill for kids to have as the world adopts more interconnected technologies and devices built for the Internet of Things.  

In this very cool new camp kids learn all about cybersecurity, from how information becomes vulnerable  in cyberspace to data transfers. 

There’s tons of cool topics to discover in this camp, from networks and web applications to to computer hardware and the OSI model and more! 

They’ll engage in strategy competitions like capture the flag showdowns and put ethical hacking skills to use. They’ll also gain a keen sense of digital citizenship.

In our Quantum Computing camp we’re teaching kids cutting-edge computer science and teaching them about qubits on a real-life IBM quantum computer! 

GenTech is a IBM Quantum Educators Program partner so kids can run compositions (quantum computing for “programs”) on one of IBM’s quantum computers. But first they’ll learn the difference between classical and quantum computing and a whole lot more. These are groundbreaking skills that gives your child a real edge when it comes to tomorrow’s cyber careers. 

When: Last Friday of the month at 4:30pm.

Cost: $90 / Class or use your Tech Mods.

  • Critical Thinking
  • Technical Aptitude
  • Coding Concepts
  • Troubleshooting
  • Problem Solving
  • Calculations

Want to extend the afternoon for your kids and get some time to yourself? 

Bring your kids to GenTech for a fun gaming in an awesome, safe environment! Every day from 4 – 6 p.m. we’ll have games, computers and gaming systems available for your kid to use – or they can bring their own game – as long as the parents of all the kids coming say it’s OK. They’ll make new friends while participating in tournaments and competitions that encourage teamwork and positive, supportive behavior. Kids can bring their own gaming consoles but are fully responsible for it.

  • Safe Positive Environment
  • Family Friendly Video Games
  • AR / VR Oculus Equipment
  • Challenging Board Games
  • Gaming Competitions
  • Snacks! Relax and have fun!
