The program will run for 10 days and will provide students with an opportunity to take a credit bearing course, or a series of fun workshops.
The idea of this program is to expose high school students to computation in a fun, creative and engaging way. We hope to attract students that have little or no experience with technology and hopefully have a change-of-attitude effect. Maybe they will be more enticed to take a computing course in school, college or even a STEM career path in the future. We all know how important computing is.
We offer 3 options,
1) a 10 day intensive engineering design (hands-on, project based) course for credit - transferable.2) a 10 day intensive interactive multimedia (hands-on, project based) course for credit - transferable.3) Four 2.5 day workshops : artbotics (art + robotics), robots (lego mindstorm competition), AppInventor (programming the android phone), and Scratch programming (games, storytelling)
Options 1 and 2 are only for rising juniors and rising seniors (no pre-reqs). Workshops are for all. The cost for any of the options is $100.
