Children will be able to get hands on with computer code during a camp at Ellensburg High School next week.

The camp runs 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 12 through 15.

According to Tiffany Price, coding camp leader, the Ellensburg High School Bulldog Bytes students will serve as helpers to assist campers and also greet campers as they enter the main entrance to complete registration.

Today, young people are expected to be tech-savvy. Employers are looking for people who are good problem-solvers able to work with a variety of multimedia platforms. In our tech society, this trend is being reflected in almost all fields, whether it’s agriculture, automotive, science and business or fashion, health care and art.

It is Price’s hope that by running coding summer camps, students will learn the necessary technical skills needed to be successful in any career they might choose. She also hopes it sparks a passion for technology that follows throughout their lives.

Price currently has 25 students for next week’s mobile apps session and welcomes any children who might have a passion or interest to try their hand at coding.

The first week is focused around mobile apps and students range from the ages of 8-12.

The following week will be video game design, Aug. 19-22 from 9 a.m. to noon. Price said she has approximately 28 students registered for that session.

Registration is $50 per student and all proceeds go to support the EHS Bulldog Bytes Coding Club. To sign up visit https://ehsprice.000webhostapp.com.
