Code Beats Camp with VCU Engineering!

This five day, full-day camp will teach middle school students to program as they create hip hop beats. They will learn all the fundamental concepts of computer programming such as sequencing, looping, functions, and variables – all while making beats! July 27th – 31st students will use the Sonic Pi live coding environment to create hip hop beats at the VCU School Of Engineering.

VCU computer science majors will serve as primary instructors as students dance along to their creations using StepMania, an open source version of Dance Dance Revolution. Additional instruction and assitance will be provided each day from college-level professors and CodeVA employees.
