Summer Camp Information GameStudio at Boise State University is pleased to announce that it will be holding Summer Camp 2012. GameStudio is a research institute of the Dept. of Educational Technology @BSU. This camp has organized a two-week-long Mathematics and Computing Summer Camp. In this camp, we will teach algebra and functions in math through the use of Scratch programming language by the MIT Media Lab. Participants will learn the concept of functions while making their own games by Scratch programming. This camp is geared toward grade 5-7 students who seek to learn math with math related games that are lots of fun. Through this camp, participants will be able to grasp an understanding of the concept of functions as well as a structural and systematical programming skill. Our pursuit of this program eventually is to improve our students’ mathematical-logical thinking and to provide participants with the opportunity to apply their knowledge towards creating their own products.

Are you looking for a fun, stimulating way to learn important math skills? Come to join us!    
