summer camp guide: coding for kids at under the gui academy

For 6 weeks only this summer, your kids can explore the world of coding, robotics, and engineering at Under the GUI Academy. They will get to tinker and learn about technology with real-world experiences. Camps are designed for kids aged 6 – 14 and you can choose from three different topics — Coding & Animation, Robotics, Circuits & 3D Printing, or Mechatronics & Engineering Olympics.


In the Coding & Animation program, students will work with Python to understand computer algorithms and computer programming basics. By the end of this camp, kids will have created their own versions of their favourite games and built a solid foundation of computer programming principles and logic.

Kids participating in the Robotics, Circuits & 3D Printing camp will learn the basics of Arduino programming and making electronic circuit prototypes. This course is designed to introduce concepts step-by-step, and by the end of the camp, your kid will have created a robot that makes drawings, or a machine to automatically water plants.


The Mechatronics & Engineering Olympics summer camp introduces students to the exciting world of Engineering through a full week of competitions and engaging activities. From egg drops to popsicle stick bridges to robotic transporter competitions, your kids will be challenged throughout the camp. Competitions are done as a team, so not only will your kids get to learn a ton, they will also get the chance to make some new friends!

Activities for all camps take place indoors and outdoors, for a healthy balance. Kids will enjoy the small class sizes and low instructor to student ratio. They’ll also receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. Plus they’ll get an awesome camp T-shirt, a PixelPad account, and Under the GUI Academy can even provide lunch (optional, opt-in for $50/week).

Camps fill quickly, register today on Eventbrite.

If you register for 2 camps you’ll receive 5% off your registration fees. Kids in 3 or more camps will receive 10% off registration fees. Contact Under the GUI at for more information.


Get your kids involved in coding at Under the GUI Academy this summer. They’ll gain invaluable knowledge on tech topics, build problem-solving skills, improve self-esteem and confidence, and they’ll have a ton of fun!
