      Clicking the link, one part says M-F the other says M-S? Do you know which one is correct? I am tempted to sign my 12 year old up, even though he probably already knows how to do this stuff, i just NEED something for him to do.

      Sorry about that – it is Monday – Friday. The instructors are very experienced in working with kids at a range of levels.

      Steve, are 15 and 16 year olds to old for this material? It just says 8+.

      I can’t answer for Steve, but from what I know, in coding its more about ability level and not so much age. I am 50 today and wouldn’t be too old for this material 😉

      And thanks for the info. I might just sign him up. Can I assume the instructors also have experience with the geek/shy/asperger type coders?

      Hi – I’ll ask the instructors for their reply to this (but Kindr has it mostly right about ability level over age). I have a Minor in Computer Science (from 25 years ago) and I learned a lot when I had two kids in a workshop like this a couple of months ago.

      I’ll ask the instructors about this as well.

      From the course organizer:

      15 and 16 may be a bit bored given the pace of camp… I think they would really like the content but would go through it faster than the pace of the camp with younger kids there. If interested, I would recommend subscribing to PodPi and doing it at home.

      From Steve: You can subscribe to PodPi at: http://www.podpi.com

      Ok I signed my son Logan up. Seeing as he just resurrected his brothers samsung s6 phone from the dead, when all the tech dudes at Verizon told me it couldn’t be done, I don’t expect him to learn much from this class…..but he REALLY needs something to do.

      Thank for the info, Steve. I kind of figured that would be the response.
