12-week Fall Session: 9/12/16 - 12/8/16
(no classes 11/21-24)
Tech Em courses are appropriate for all ages (6+) and skill levels. Instructor/ student ratio is low so we can offer individualized projects based on experience and age. Students with previous experience, or those who have taken our courses or camps in the past, will be challenged to expand their knowledge through more complex designs, tools, or languages
Tuesdays (9/13-12/6) 6:00-7:00pm
Students will gain or expand their coding knowledge through a variety of programming languages and projects based on experience level, building from visual-based languages to Python. They will apply fundamental computer science skills such as source code control, software design, reverse engineering, bug resolution, and coding environments.
Wednesdays (9/14-12/7) 6:00-7:00pm
Students will design, build, configure, code, and test physical devices using microcontrollers (e.g., Arduino) or microcomputers (e.g., Raspberry Pi). Specific projects are based on the students’ levels, but previous projects have included robots, temperature/humidity sensors, wearable pendants, and integration of virtual world (e.g., Minecraft) and physical world.
Thursdays (9/15-12/8) 6:00-7:00pm
Students will design, code, and publish customized software games that they can share with family and friends. The gaming app taught will vary based on the student’s skill level. This class will not only be fun, but it will be challenging for both new students as well as those who have previously attended a TechEm gaming camp or class.
Multiple 4 week sessions
Students will build and configure their own computers to take home. We offer individualized instruction to understand the parts, their uses, how to assemble, and how to configure for each student’s particular purpose. Three sessions offered per semester:
Session 1: 9/13-10/4 (Tue 6:00-7:00pm)
Session 2: 10/12-11/2 (Wed 6:00-7:00pm)
Session 3: 11/10-12/8 (Thu 6:00-7:00pm)
Mondays (9/12-12/5) 6:00 - 7:00pm
