Through Kerbal Space Program, students will test, build and fly their own rockets, complete with a realistic physics! The SpaceX Mod will allow us to move from conventional rockets onto SpaceX Rockets, which are the first rockets able to come back from space for re-use. 3D Design and Printing will also be utilized to get a hands on idea of how these amazing machines and engineered and built.
Girls Coding Club (Ages 10-14) - Empower young girls with a recipe for the future by introducing the languages of programming. First students will learn how to create stories and games in Scratch. We then move into more traditional languages like HTML, Java and Python! Coding allows girls to design a project and watch it come to life, developing an important skill that will help close the gender gap in the computer science industries.
Sewing the future with Wearables (Ages 9-14) - Marrying tradition and technology, the art of sewing with technology driven designs! Wearable technology, or wearables, are clothing and accessories incorporating computer and electronic technologies, like light up sneakers or an activity tracker. Designs often incorporate working functions and features, but may also purely exist for fun or art! In this enrollments students will first learn how to sew, producing items by hand and with sewing machines. Then students create their own digital wearable to take home and enjoy! Make a scarf that changes colors, or a hat that tells the temperature!
Python Coding (Ages 9-12) - Python is one of the most popular programming languages our right now. Python runs on almost anything! Windows, Mac, Linux, even an OLPC laptop or Raspberry Pi. Python is a powerful, expressive programming language that's easy to learn and fun to use.
Robots for Kids (Ages 7-9) - Robotics for beginners and beyond, this workshop features Ozobots, Cubelets and Dash & Dot Robots. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, English may be a global language, but it's more important to learn how to code! "This is a language that you can [use to] express yourself to 7 billion people in the world..." Learning coding through robotics is fun and interactive, an inspiring way to dive deeper into programming, computer logic and more!
Creating Video Games (Ages 7-9) - Students will dive into video game design using the Scratch Coding Platform! Scratch is familiar to many students as it's used in schools nationwide. Scratch makes coding easier and more fun through programming with blocks of code! Without having to worry about exact syntax students are able to make amazingly imaginative and impressive games in no time!
Minecraft Adventures (Ages 7-9) - This is not your average Minecraft available at home. Students will get a taste of exploring new aspects of a custom built Education Minecraft, while also learning computer logic and programming! Students Code "Turtles" little minions that assist them with collecting and building, but only if coded correctly! Every increasing challenges and quests are bestowed upon the students, growing problem solving skills, patience and teamwork!
