👾 Create and program Art, Games and Animations with Scratch while using movement/dance to creatively learn the basic concepts of programming.
🙌 No prior experience in programming or movement/dance is required! Also, children and youngsters who already attended any Body.scratch session are more than welcome to join, we've got new challenges to share!
👌Together with Stichting Leergeld Eindhoven, we offer tickets to take part in our Summer Bootcamp. A limited number of tickets are being offered to kids from low-income families, feel free to reach out to us to apply.
🎫 🎟️ There are DUO tickets (for 2 participants) and SOLO tickets! Each ticket is for the full bootcamp (3 daily sessions).
🇬🇧🇳🇱 + 🇲🇫🇪🇸 The Bootcamp will be held in English and Dutch. Our team also speaks fluent French and Spanish.
🔎 During these 3 daily sessions taking place at Dynamo Eindhoven, kids and youngsters of 8-16 years old will get introduced to the basics of programming (what it is, how is work, why it is valuable for now and the future), dive into visual programming using Scratch to apply computer science concepts (demystifying commands, functions, loops algorithms, and more), autonomously and collaboratively explore their own way of understanding these concepts (choosing or inventing dance moves that translate these concepts), articulate verbally and bodily their process to others.
🎓 Each participant who completes the bootcamp will receive a Body.scratch certificate of achievement and a tech BONUS!
🌮 We will provide water and snacks, although we ask all participants to bring their lunch daily along with their own cups and utensils.
🗓️ The event takes place in Dynamo's gymnasium on: — Thursday July 29th, 10.00-14.00 — Friday July 30th, 10.00-14.00 — Saturday July 31st, 10.00-14.00 Doors open at 09.45 everyday.
🔁 As a minimum of 10 students is required to offer this camp, all subscribers will be notified 3 days prior if the camp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.
🎬 By purchasing a ticket to join the bootcamp you agree that video/photo material will be done and used by Body.scratch for pedagogic research and development purpose as well as communication on social media to share insights to our online audience and schools.
✅ Regarding health and safety precautions :
— Participants will be regularly reminded to keep a safe distance. — Most of the activities will be done in pairs, so participants that are from the same household or that regularly see each other remain together. This is why we made DUO tickets! — Participants will be required to wash their hands when they arrive and hand sanitizer will be available. — Participants are encouraged to wear masks whenever they would like to. — Every morning, our team will measure each participants temperature with a contactless thermometer. In the case their temperature exceeds 38° Celcius, they will be asked to return home.
🌍 Body.scratch is the method that empowers digital natives to bodily engage, play & create games, animations and art by learning basics of programming through movement/dance.
