What We Offer
The Winter program from Pyramid Academy is designed for motivated learners who wish to explore diverse subjects- much of which can't be explored over the academic year- in an engaging environment. The main objective of our program is not only on assisting students with gaining knowledge itself, but also on the process of developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Through our rigorous curriculum, students will be much better prepared for various prestigious national and international competitions.
Winter Camps are designed to offer excellent educational and fun-filled activities through our week-long programs. Each camp is independent and covers different contents. Students can choose multiple camps of the different subject if it is desired. The minimum camp size is 10, and the maximum size is 20. Before and after camp childcare for campers is available upon request, a minimum fee will be applied for the service provided.

We'll use fun acting exercises as well as monologues and duets from actual plays to enjoy exploring these ideas!
Computer Game Making
This class will be an introduction into very basic programming. We will use the tool/language Scratch, which is a free to use visual programming language developed at MIT. Scratch is designed for education, and is very beginner-friendly. Programs are built using blocks and are snapped together into scripts instead of being written line by line in text.
In this camp, teacher will teach the basics of Scratch, and in doing so, introduce students to the type of thinking that programming requires. The goal will be for each student to come up with an idea for a simple computer game and build it.
