Camp Explore 2024: Coding LightLogo with Josh Burker

Tue, June 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT


Register Here

For students entering Grades 7 - 9 in Fall 2024

This is a cumulative, three-day workshop. Attendance at all three sessions is recommended.

Coders will be introduced to LightLogo, a microworld where we make a variety of light patterns with only 10 lines of code. This program encourages algorithmic thinking — learning how to express a sequence of things that expresses itself over time.

Requirements: Windows or Mac computer (NO Chromebooks) with USB port. Software download required prior to start of the workshop.

Josh Burker is the creative technology teacher at Marymount School Upper Middle Division in New York City. He has taught in both public and private schools for more than 20 years, working with Logo programming, robotics, fabrication, electronics, and art. He writes books, holds workshops for teachers, and consults on educational projects that he finds inclusive and disruptive. He is the author of The Invent to Learn Guide to Fun and The Invent to Learn Guide to More Fun, both of which inspire makers of all ages to explore the intersection of crafting and technology through whimsical, creative projects.
