Sylvan Tynker Java & Python Coding Camps: June, July, August

  • Location: Gorton Community Center
    400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045

Sylvan is offering 3 different dates for their Tynker Java & Python Coding for Grades 6-8:

  • Camp #1 June 25 – 28, M-TH, 12:30-2:30
  • Camp #2 July 23 – 26,  M-TH, 12:30-2:30
  • Camp #3 August 6 – 9, M-TH, 12:30-2:30
  • An introduction to JavaScript for intermediate or advanced coders in upper middle or high school. In this advanced lesson plan, students will be introduced to JavaScript as they complete engaging lessons, solve challenging puzzles, and build their own games in JavaScript. This course is ideal for students who have already completed at least one Tynker course and are comfortable with the basics of programming logic and computational thinking. This course will help them transition to JavaScript and adapt to the additional challenges of text-based syntax.

Students who successfully complete this lesson plan will demonstrate a strong mastery of JavaScript syntax, as well as the ability to creatively program games and other projects and debug their own code. Students will also be able to come up with an idea for a game and take it through the entire design and implementation process, creating custom versions of many of their favorite games in JavaScript.

Topics Covered: JavaScript syntax, sequencing, repetition, conditional logic, nested loops, automation, pattern recognition, simple motion, keyboard and mouse events, creating and using an HTML canvas, operators, expressions, variables, collision detection, using arrays and objects to store structured data.

Gorton Community Center will take and may use photos and videos from this event for its promotional purposes. Your attendance indicates your consent to the above.

Class Refund and Cancellation Policy: Refunds will only be given up to one week prior to the first week of class of any session. (The refund period for some classes, which require advanced reservations or purchase of materials, may be more limited.) Cancellations will incur a $5 handling fee for programs costing under $100 and a 10% handling fee for programs with fees of $100 or more. If a class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, you will be notified, and a full refund will be given.
