Camp de Codage pour Jeunes Inventeurs

Nos camps de vacances prochainement à --> Pierrefonds!! Disponible notre Camp de Codage pour Jeunes Inventeurs (Age 8-13)

Le camp de codage est un camp d'une semaine où les enfants passeront 3 heures par jour en présence de nos instructeurs pour apprendre le codage par blocs. Le codage par blocs fait partie du développement et de la programmation, ces blocs sont utilisés pour écrire du code de manière visuelle et simple. Les enfants développent leurs compétences en matière de codage, de résolution de problèmes et de pensée logique en développant leur propre histoires et en utilisant le codage par blocs pour créer des animations et des jeux.

For the first week of July, we will be partnering with Amplify Studio for our Science Camp for age 6-8. Science Camp is a week-long camp where kids will spend 2 hours per day in the presence of our instructors to learn about electric circuits through self-exploration and working on experiments with our campers. We provide our campers with their own kits so they can continue to experiment with its components even after the camp. In this way, they are able to demonstrate what they have learnt to their parents and peers. We want our campers to engage in life-long learning and encourage them to push the limits of what they learn with us.

Our upcoming Science Camp at Amplify Studio will be from Monday 5 July to Friday 9 July. You can choose from two time slots either 1-3pm everyday in French or 3.30-5.30pm everyday in English

Our Story

Has a Mauritian ever told you: ”We’re in Mauritius, this will never work”? I have heard this hundreds of times, and I’ve had enough of it.

My name is Jade and I’m Mauritian. I like to think of myself as a maker, I make things to solve problems. While working in Mauritius as an engineer, I realised that I wanted to work in an environment where people were passionate about what they do, I wanted to work with people who were not afraid to challenge the status quo. I also wanted to work with people who would fight for what they believed in, who would not just choose the easiest option because it is less work. I was looking for critical thinkers and change-makers and these people were rare.

In my quest to find these people and after some research, I came to realise that I was looking for was a culture of innovation. As kids, we are all curious and we ask all kinds of questions. However in the Mauritian culture, where failure is a taboo, adults are often afraid of asking questions and they lose this curiosity. I began to question myself: how can adults keep this child-like wonder? and how can we incorporate this culture of innovation to the already existing culture?

This is when I came up with Katapult. The project did not even have a name then. I knew I wanted to create a community of young makers that would have the ability to think both critically and creatively. I wanted to create a community that would have the curiosity to always ask why, that would have the confidence to challenge the status quo and that would not be afraid to test out their ideas. My role in this would be to empower these young people so that they become our next generation of leaders and change-makers.
