Digital storytelling is an imaginative and engaging way for kids to share ideas and experiences. Students first create characters, themes, and digital backgrounds using 3DC and StoryJumper. Campers then utilize Scratch Junior, a visual programming language to create their own interactive stories and animations. Later in the week, students will have the chance to connect circuits to their stories with Makey Makey devices, and can create more complex animations with Scratch block coding. We will read popular children’s literature as a means of sparking creativity, and animate stories through coding!
