Giving your little one a head start in coding toward game design might be just the catalyst in bringing out the best in your child. According to a research study by the ACM Digital Library in September of 2019, entitled Does Computer Game Design and Programming Benefit Children?  “…a systematic analysis and synthesis across studies showed some evidence that computer game design and programming can lead to changes in programming knowledge, problem solving, and computer science attitudes and confidence.”

The good folks at CodeNinjas in nearby Piscataway are offering Edison residents at  Edison WoodsEdison Woods Senior 55+Edison VillageBlueberry Village, & Rivendell Heights the opportunity enroll their future 7-14 year young code-wizards in their 5 day camp program ADVENTURES IN GAME DESIGN from June 20-June 24th from 1pm-4pm.  

Using a block-based kid friendly programming language called SCRATCH developed by MIT, campers will explore different programming concepts as they create various games. If they think playing games was fun, wait till they make their own!
