Do you wonder what it’s like to develop software or build structures for a living? Do you possess a natural curiosity toward innovation and technology? These courses challenge students to think critically about today’s most pressing technology-related questions and create solutions to real-world design challenges.
AI & Robotics Course
The rapidly changing field of technology means that jobs are being created that never existed before. Meet with real-world experts, and explore a wide range of careers and academic paths for robotics and AI majors. Excursions may include research facilities on the forefront of the latest technology innovations.
Computer Science Course
Spend most of the first week learning block-based programming for Android and iOS operating systems. The exercises and tutorials quickly help students build capacity with coding, abstraction, algorithms and data management within a program. The second week involves active coding in small groups with intense research and collaboration. This approach involves an introduction to Python and Raspberry Pi hardware which allows students to create a mini-project by using the sensors and LED matrix on the Sense HAT technology. This collection of experiential tasks provides a comprehensive experience through a rewarding engineering process resulting in a functioning computational artifact.
Fundamentals of Engineering Course
This engineering summer program for high school students doesn’t just tackle engineering and science fundamentals, it also challenges students to think critically and creatively about how to design innovative solutions to complex problems. We will explore facets of mechanical, structural, civil, and biomedical engineering in a hands-on, minds-on approach.
Mechanical Engineering Course
Mechanical engineering is an exciting field, offering jobs in almost every industry. Some of the top industries hiring mechanical engineers today include engineering services, R&D and manufacturing. This hands-on course will provide exposure to mechanical engineers who can share their personal academic and career paths.
