Whatever your kids like to do, they can do it here at Moraine Valley!
eFun Academy Computer Camps
eFun Academy students are guided by adult mentors and their own imaginations to solve real world-inspired science, technology, engineering, and mathematics challenges. The point of eFun Academy is to excite all students about science and technology. As our name states, we want students to have fun, and they will have that fun while playing creatively and with a purpose. Classes include Lego programming, movie making, game making, and Android app programming.
Children's natural curiosity and ingenuity help them envision possibilities and develop innovative solutions to difficult technology problems. eFun Academy will challenge your student with authentic, hands-on explorations and then provide support as they engage in: questioning, exploring, imagining, designing, constructing, inventing, testing, observing, learning, failing (and trying again).
No prior Lego or programming experience is required. Students will be taught everything they need to know during class. Students will work in teams of two. Friends are welcome to sign up together and can be partners.
Parents or guardians are responsible for transporting children to and from Moraine Valley. They should be dropped off no more than 10 minutes before a class begins and picked up promptly at the classroom no earlier than 10 minutes before a class ends. Children are not to be left unattended on campus.
Each student should bring a writing tablet and pencil to the first class meeting. Art students should bring a drawing pencil and drawing tablet. Some classes require textbooks—check course descriptions. Textbooks are sold in the Bookstore in Building D on campus.
We want your child to have an excellent learning experience at Moraine Valley. Please feel free to contact us at (708) 974-5735 or come to the CCCE office in Room T904 in the Center for Contemporary Technology (Building T).
We reserve the right to dismiss students who are unable or unwilling to conform to an instructor's rules. These programs are not designed to provide assistance for children with severe learning disabilities, emotional or behavioral problems, or delayed cognitive development. Parents are advised to consult with their local school personnel or their pediatrician for special assistance.
It is the parent's responsibility to drop a child's course at least three calendar days (9 a.m.-5 p.m.) prior to the start of the class to receive a full refund. Classes dropped less than three days before the start of the class will receive no refund. No-shows do not constitute a cancellation. No credit may be used toward another section for missed classes.
