Summer Camps

Erin Mairose

A camp in Sioux Falls this summer is teaching kids how to program electronics and video games. Using computer code, kids learn how to program a motion sensor, range finder, and a laser to create a homemade security system.

15 middle school boys eagerly punch computer keys, and plug electronic pieces into a microcontroller board. They are learning how to upload code onto their device to create certain effects, such as a motion sensor that emits different sound depending on how far away it detects an object.
