Google Game Design (ages eight to 13)

Join this class and learn how to program various types of digital games using the Google Computer Science First and Scratch interfaces. Mothers and fathers may not understand this, but your kids do! Game styles include racing, mazes, platform, strategy, and others. Learn how games like Super Mario, Angry Birds, Candy Crush, and Flappy Bird were created. It is fun and interactive. Students should bring their own headphones. Two separate sessions of this program will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, with one session from July 8 to 11 and another from July 15 to July 18. One session costs $60.

Google Fashion Design (ages eight to 13)

Fashion designers use computer designers to help create and produce the clothes we wear. Using the Google Computer Science First and Scratch interfaces we will explore the use of coding in fashion design. We will build fashion themed programs like a fashion walk, a stylist tool, and a pattern maker. Budding fashionistas will be glad they enrolled in this class! Please bring your own headphones. This program will take place from 9:00 a.m. to noon, from July 15 to 18. Each session costs $60.

Carolina Shag Dancing (rising seventh to ninth grade)

Dances are always fun when Beach Music is playing, and the Shag is the favorite couples dance in the Carolinas. Come and learn to shag and enjoy the fellowship in our dancing classroom. It will not take long to master the basic steps and at least six fun moves. Dance etiquette will be included in the instruction. This program will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m., July 11 to 30, and it costs $50.

3-D Modeling and Printing (rising seventh to 12th grade)

3-D printing is the future of manufacturing, and it has many scientific and medical applications as well. Students will use computer software to create three-dimensional renderings of an object, and then they will employ geometric constraints and extrusions to modify the rendering. Finally, they will set-up and run a 3-D printer to create the object. It sounds complex, but it really is fun when Joshua Kelly, BCCC mechanical engineering instructor, leads the way. All supplies are included, and participants will carry home the object they create. This program will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. from July 23 to Aug. 1. Cost is $50.
