SUMMER CAMP SESSION TYPES:

MOBILE TECH CAMP

No matter what your child's experience level is, we've got a session for you! Our sessions are designed to engage campers with and without previous technology experience.

 

All sessions emphasize fundamentals in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Typing to campers. Camp sessions can contain up to 12 registered students per class and each class is taught by 2 staff members (1 camp instructor and 1 camp counselor). 

 

Each camper's skill-set is assessed during the 1st days of camp. Parents/guardians then receive a recommendation on whether to move up/down the camp level in order to achieve maximum outcome for their student.

 

Check out our session types below and register your camper for whichever one fits the best!

Mobile Tech 100: Novice: Introduction to Coding & Circuits

Our Introduction to Mobile Technology session is designed for students that have little or no programming/circuits experience. These daily workshops are especially great for students who enjoy consuming technology (apps, video games, robots, etc.) but have not yet had a focused opportunity to build technology on their own. Projects in these classes are tutorial-based and are completed within 1-2 camp days.

  • Note: Each camper's skill-set is assessed during the 1st days of camp. Parents/guardians will receive a recommendation on whether to move up/down the camp level in order to achieve maximum outcome for their student.

Some of the concepts introduced in the 100-level sessions include:

  • Computer Science: Block-Based Programming using Scratch  & AppInventor, App Design, Algorithms, Variables, Input & Output

  • Electrical Engineering: Electricity, Series & Parallel Circuits, Conductors/Insulators 

  • Typing: Individualized Learning Plan/Goals based off assessment. 

Mobile Tech 200: Beginner: Coding & Circuits

The 200-level Mobile Technology sessions are targeted for students who have already completed Mobile Tech 100 or have had prior experience in coding or circuits. Examples of prior experiences would be 3+ hours using Scratch, LegoMindstorms, CodeKingdoms, etc. at home or via an after-school program.

  • Note: Each camper's skill-set is assessed during the 1st days of camp. Parents/guardians will receive a recommendation on whether to move up/down the camp level in order to achieve maximum outcome for their student.

The core projects in these classes start off tutorial-based but usually have 1-2 problem solving areas for campers to figure out before completion. Some of the concepts introduced in the 200-level sessions include:

  • Computer Science: Text-Based Programming using Python, Computer Logic, Algorithms II

  • Electrical Engineering: Breadboarding, Voltage, Resistance, LEDs, Microcontrollers (Arduino)

  • Typing: Individualized Learning Plan/Goals based off assessment

Mobile Tech 300: Intermediate: Mobile Technology Applications 

Mobile Tech 300 is our camp targeted for rising 6th - 8th graders or intermediate-level campers who have had prior experience in STEAM projects.

  • Please see 100 & 200 level expectations or contact us for details on pre-requisite

  • Note: Each camper's skill-set is assessed during the 1st days of camp. Parents/guardians will receive a recommendation on whether to move up/down the camp level in order to achieve maximum outcome for their student.

 

Tech 300 aligns itself to the AP Computer Science Exam curriculum through the teaching of the Java programming language and introductory Android App Design. This innovative camp will also extend Mobile Tech 200 Electrical Engineering curriculum by going into Electronic Sensor & Actuator design emphasizing projects that relate to "real-world" applications. An additional feature of Mobile Tech 300 is our "Fireside" Tech Chat sessions where campers will discuss Tech Trends & Topics such as enterpreneurship, social media & more.
