There has been a lot of sad things happening in the world lately. Many of us have difficult feelings connected to those things. Unfortunately we can’t change the world overnight, but the change does start with each of us.
For two days we will give power to the voices of the young ones, kids and teenagers and their unchained imagination. We’ll encourage them to make the world a kinder place using a little bit of technology. Participants of the camp will come up with ideas for apps, websites or games that can make us all a bit kinder. With our help they’ll design a prototype for their ideas using professional design software and in the end we’ll hold a presentation for each project. All projects and ideas will attempt to move us a tiny step closer to becoming a welcoming, inclusive, warm and friendly community.
We will start with learning some brainstorming techniques and picking the idea that is worth working on. Then we’ll get our hands dirty with design. We’ll work on how exactly the prototypes are going to function and look. Participants will be able to make their own designs from scratch with a bit of guidance from the teachers. They will make layouts, choose colors and will even add some animations. All of that will be done in a professional design software called Figma.
Project Kindness is a younger brother of our Easter success The Pandemic Project, when 35 kids worked in teams to try and solve problems caused by corona-crisis. Here you can watch a short video about that camp.
All projects start with an idea. An idea for something that should be there but is not. A solution to a problem. We’ll start by coming up with a project that makes you excited!
At this stage you’ll get your hands dirty with some colors, learn about fonts and experiment with making things not only pretty but also easy and pleasant to use.
Presenting your work to others in an important skill. It can be a bit scary at first but there are tricks that will make any presentation worth listening to.
Nope, no drawing skills are required for this camp. Just bring yourself and your imagination.
This course will require you to run Zoom (video conferencing software). Zoom runs best on Windows and Mac. Most computers that are not older than 5 years should be fine. If you are unsure, please contact us.
You can get a full refund up to 2 weeks before the camp starts. Special case? Contact us.
