Code Beats Online Camp
Our three-week long online camp teaches students to code as they make hip hop beats. Each weekday from 10-11am we broadcast live to them, teaching the day’s lesson, hosting virtual guests like NO BS Brass’s Taylor Barnett or rapper Nickelus F, interacting with students via live chat and online voting, and making sure students are prepared to complete the day’s lesson. At 11am, we release the day’s assignment. Assignments are designed to require only 15 minutes of time, but many students spend hours making their beats spectacular. We share some students’ beats in class the next day. At the end of the three weeks we hold a beats competition, where students compete in a March-Madness-style bracket to see who can create the best beat. This camp has an emphasis on FUN!
