This program is a jam-packed week for middle school students interested in being introduced to the coding and programming fields with real hands-on experience and a comprehensive understanding of the topics. Our middle school program combines academic courses, interactive labs, and recreational activities to give middle school students a supportive, fun, and enriching summer experience. During this program students will design, build, and program a self-driving car with sensors that will follow a painted line. At the end of the program students will race their cars against each other.
Topics you'll explore
Hands on learning
Students will have the opportunity to engage with highly accomplished specialists in this field. Guest speakers will share their wealth of knowledge and encourage innovative thinking in this area of learning. Hands-on learning is experienced through company visits in and around the incredible Silicon Valley. Outside of course specific studies the students will explore all the Bay Area has to offer! With so much rich history, breathtaking sights, parks and famed landmarks at our fingertips there is something for everyone to discover!
There are four 3-hour class sessions over the one-week course. During the week, students have class from 9am-12pm, Monday - Thursday (program check-out is on Friday morning). Wednesday afternoon will be dedicated to additional academic time with possible excursions and/or guest speakers.
The Middle School programs operate separately from Summer Springboard high school programs with separate staff, accommodations, classes, and a more structured environment. For students completing grades 6-8.
