Does your child have what it takes to lead in the 21st century? Young Hacks Academy is a summer camp that uses technology to develop real-world leadership skills. Blending computer programming, problem-solving, and teamwork, YHA teaches kids to build cool video games about big challenges facing the world today, such as climate change, homelessness, and endangered wildlife. Whether it’s public speaking or collaborating with peers, YHA Agent Training models essential leadership techniques that will immediately help students in and out of the classroom. Agents tackle daily missions using Scratch, a user-friendly, visual programming tool that empowers students to quickly start developing their own video games and interactive stories. As serious as we are about exploring technology, YHA is also committed to having fun away from the screen, moving campers outside each day for unplugged games like treasure hunts and riddle relays. No programming experience is required. For more information, visit younghacks.com
YHA BETA MASTERS
Following a real-world production cycle, YHA Beta Masters
work in teams to develop an innovative game prototype from conception to completion. Campers will use the Stencyl
game engine to take their computational learning to the next level, creating original graphics and bringing them to life with Haxe
coding. The program culminates with a beta release party in which friends and family act as investors.
