A summer tech camp for middle schoolers!
We're pleased to announce that we'll be running a tech camp this summer. The project we'll be working on is to build environmental sensors for our homes. By the end of the camp our students will be able to log scientific data from sensors and build their own websites to visualize the data they are collecting in their homes. The students will get to take all their equipment home with them to monitor your house temperature on your computer.Click here to sign up
This course will teach students:
- electronics skills: soldering and concepts of current, resistance, voltage, and digital logic
- science skills: data logging, sensors, and understanding units
- math skills: using mathematical functions and logic
- troubleshooting and a good work ethic
Camp will run Monday thru Thursday from 1-5, starting July 18th and running through August 12th. The camp is running at our center at 6460 S. Stony Island, and the center will be open from 12:30-6:30. The cost will be $120/week and this includes a daily snack and all materials that the students get to keep at the end of the camp.
Class fees must be paid in full by July 8th in order to participate.
