ST. GEORGE, Utah, Sept. 14, 2018 – Planet Codu… The extraterrestrial planet that houses some of the most mysterious and cutest alien life forms you have ever seen. At our 2018 CodeChangers Summer Camps, we sent our campers to Codu on a mission to explore programming, engineering, design and more. These kids and teenagers bravely took on new skills and tasks–many of which were not easy. Armed with pizza, code, and pixel beads, all of our campers were able to accomplish each and every mission assigned to them!
These 2018 kids and teenagers gathered throughout the western United States–including in California, Montana and towns throughout Utah– to attend a CodeChanger Summer Camp. We even had some help from children in Thailand! (What a treat!). In these camps, these kids learned about the fields of computer science, design, technology, and engineering–all fundamental professions in the world of STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math). From building toy cars to programming their own virtual reality, there were many tasks that these campers had to take on. Each lesson was carefully selected and designed with our kids and teenagers in mind. We wanted to give these talented kids a head start on learning fundamental skills that are necessary in high-demand careers–and these kids took on the activities beautifully.
Just like Professor Dumbledore and Harry Potter or Obi Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, these campers’ missions would have not been accomplished without the help of other talented people. Thank you to all of the universities, companies, parents and volunteers that made the CodeChangers Camps a success. From supplies, to meals to volunteer hours– we couldn’t have had this successful summer without you. Thank you so much for all of your help and believing in these kids’ futures!
Congratulations to all of our campers. We are so proud of each and every one of them. These camps are not easy–and all of the kids and teenagers performed beautifully. Planet Codu is still thriving and doing extremely well– in fact there will be many future quests that will be needed to be taken on. More Codu missions can be found in our post-camp activities (Coming soon to a computer near you!), online program and after school programs (Check to see if an after school program is available in your community) and future camps.
We hope to see you again, but for now, we are proud to say:
