Summer camp season is in full swing, and Apple is joining in on the fun. Registration is now open for Apple Camp next month at your local Apple Store for kids 8 to 12.
Coding, iMovie, and iBooks
This year, Apple is offering three different sessions covering coding, iMovies, and iBooks.
The coding camp is new for 2016, and definitely sounds like a blast. Kids will learn the fundamentals of block coding for games and apply different skills like pattern recognition and problem solving. They’ll then use that knowledge to code with the Tynker app and Sphero robotic ball.
Perfect for budding filmmakers, the iMovie course will teach children everything they need to create their own movies. Kids will storyboard different ideas, shoot the video, and explore other parts of filmmaking. The movies will be edited using iMovie on a Mac.
Finally, the iBooks course will focus on making interactive books and the different elements of story creation. Campers will draw on an iPad and then add other effects with iBooks Author on the Mac.
