Game Coding with Scratch™ or Python™

3D printing and CAD Design™

Robotics with Lego™

Digital Art and Animation with Inkscape™ and Synfig Studio™

Modding Minetest™

Engineering Challenges


Sylvan Learning of Red Deer's technology camps are back. We now have a new day just for Home schooled students.  Starting in September and continuing until June, we will be hosting your choice of 1/2day or full day technology camps the first Wednesday of each month.

Students will rotate through a variety of activities. Activities we feature often are, robotics with Lego™, game coding with Scratch™ or Python, 3D Printing/CAD design, Digital Art with Inkscape ™,  Animation with Tupi ™ or SynfigStudio plus an engineering challenge is given at the start of the day. 

After a project is completed students get to collaborate in a MineCraft ™ like world called Minetest ™.  There they will be challenged to build, craft, farm and collaborate to survive.   They will have to think about things like shelter, food, & defence all while trying to find or craft the resources they need.  They can be further challenged to complete guided instructions learning how to modify the Minetest environment using a programming language called Lua.

Multiple levels of difficulty are available in each activity so suitable material is available for students from grade 3 to grade 10.   Grade 2 students are welcome to try a 1/2 day.

Classes are are held at Sylvan Learning Centre Red Deer

#12 5579 - 47 St Sylvan Learning Centre.

3D printing ..,. Instructors assist students through guided instruction on the use of 3D CAD software as they design various objects, that upon completion they get to keep.

Robotics with Lego™... Instructors assist students as they follow guided instruction creating a robot or machine that uses gears, pulleys, levers, and other simple machines to transfer motion from a motor.

World Craft collaboration ...Students will collaborate in building a world in a locally connected version of Minetest (tm).  Minetest is a voxel block game very much like Minecraft ™.

Digital Art with Inkscape™ ... Inkscape is a free and open-source vector graphics editor. This software can be used to create or edit vector graphics such as illustrations, diagrams, line arts, charts, logos, business cards, book covers, icons, CD/DVD covers, and complex paintings.Wikipedia

Digital Animation™ ... Synfig Studio is a free and open-source 2D vector graphics and timeline-based computer animation program created by Robert Quattlebaum with additional contributions by Adrian Bentley.Wikipedia

Engineering with K'nex™...  Challenge activity where students get to release their inner architect.

Game Coding with Scratch. Create a game and solve coding challenges with the scratch coding environment.
