Elementary Program Introducing Computing

EPIC is designed to inspire the next generation of computing innovators by engaging young students in learning computational thinking skills and programming fundamentals. We offer various levels of classes that help students build their confidence in computing technologies in a well-balanced learning environment. Our hands-on activities are designed to promote problem solving and logic thinking skills as well as to encourage social interactions, participation, and fun!  Let the kids’ imagination soar as they collaborate with new friends and guided by our experienced tech-savvy staff. 

  • Lunch is included daily in all sessions in a UNH award-winning dining hall.
  • Morning and afternoon breaks with supervised outdoor play and techtivities. 
  • Low student to instructor ratio and qualified camp instructors.

Robotic Programming Explorer (EPIC junior-level)

Students will be engaged in building and programming EV3 Mindstorms robots to tackle mini real-world challenges. The camp will show why computer science is fun and how it helps our everyday life through innovations and technologies. Students will work together, make friends, and create robots from day one. No prior programming experience is required. Extended care till 5pm is available.             

Session 1 Jun 25 - 29            8:30am-4:15pm  4th - 6th  grade     $395

Session 2  July 2 - 6              8:30am-4:15pm  4th - 6th  grade      $330


Physical Computing Fun (EPIC Intermediate-level)               

Students will learn about basic computing concepts through interactive physical media. The activities include building mobile apps and/or working with E-sewing kit.  Instead of just being a consumer of modern technologies, students learn to become a creator of computing artifacts while working with tangible devices.  They will work in teams, make friends, and have fun with hands-on computing activities.  Some prior programming experience (e.g. Mindstorms, code.org, Scratch) is recommended but not required.  Extended care till 5pm is available.

Session 1 Jun 25 - 29            8:30am-4:15pm  5th - 7th  grade     $395
