SUMMER PROGRAMS 2020

Students can exlore a variety of topics this summer at PEER's tech and media workshops!   Kids will discover, create, communicate, research, and innovate alongside our program leaders who guide them through fun learning opportunities.  Workshops are available in the morning or afternoon with an option to select "full day" and attend both sessions.   Workshops will be structured such that, in addition to theme projects, students will have an opportunity to be exposed to other subjects.

Tech Boot Camp - Grades 3-4 and Grades 5-7

This program is intended to expose students to a variety of technical disciplines while engaging them in fun learning activities, most of which, can be continued at home after the camp is over.  The disciplines they will explore include 3D Printing, Robotics, Game Design, Mobile App Design, Physical Computing with both Arduino and micro:bit.  The intent is to expose students to these activities so they will get a sense of where their interests lie and where they might like to continue their adventures in exploring technology.  More information is available here.

July 6-10 PM

Game Design Camp - Grades 5-7

In this camp, students will learn to design games from concept to algorithm to implementation.  The students will be challenged to think like a coder and will explore learn about the coding concepts available in all programming languages.   The uses multiple environments to expose and teach the concepts in a variety of ways.  The camp is intended to be fun while exposing the students a number of freely available, highly popular platforms and encouraging continued exploration long after the camp ends.   More information is available here.

Lego Robotics - Grades 5-7

Featuring  Terrabats Robotics Team #14525

We are happy to be working with the Terrabats Team, a group of 10 high school students that work together on various Lego Challenges.  An example of one of their robots that they built and coded in 3 days can be found here

 

While we are still finalizing the details with the team, we wanted to create a placeholder for those with an interest in Lego Robotics. If you are interested, please register for the program here or fill out the interest form here.  The details will be provided by the end of Feb, after their coach returns from overseas and we have the opportunity to flesh out the details.
