The Mystery of the Missing Video Game
This unique camp sends participants on a top-secret mission with thought provoking, hands-on scientific activities as they work as a group to solve the mystery of who took the missing video game! Participants will become spy detectives as they examine various clues left at the crime scene. Participants will examine and compare clothing fibers, hair samples, fingerprints, footprints and handwriting samples as they discover how to find overlooked details at the scene with their newly acquired observational skills! The group will learn about blood and ink evidence, as well as how DNA profiling plays an important role in solving crimes. Once our spies have gathered the scientific evidence, they will be able to solve the mission of the missing video game!

 Code Your Own Adventure! Interactive Storytelling
 Watch as the characters in your imagination come to life in this unique course that blends classic storytelling with animation techniques and coding. Start with a concept, design the characters, and choose not just one ending, but many! Learn how to create your own text-based adventure games with variables, conditional logic, images, HTML, CSS, and Twine scripting syntax. Student projects will be available on a password protected website to share with friends and family.

 *Students will receive Escape from a Video Game: The Secret of Phantom Island by Dustin Brady to read the week prior to camp start!
