Coding camp coming soon
Monday, May 28, 2018
By now, many children are becoming familiar with coding camps, where they can learn coding skills on computers. This summer, Martin County West will offer such a camp for students in grades 5-8, but with a twist in the form of a 3D printer.
According to Martin County West teacher Reanne Berhow, the printer is new, creating some excitement.
“We haven’t really done much with it yet because we just got it,” she said. “The kids will probably be playing with it more during the camp so that will be the first time it really gets used.”
Berhow said the $3,500 machine heats up to 400 degrees, so she will be the one operating it. 3D projects can take anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours to print.
As for the camp itself, Berhow said the students will experience both coding and 3D printing for the first time.
