Have you ever wondered what's inside of a computer? Or your phone? Participants will pick apart at the electronics in our gadgets, make LED greeting cards, and learn about the engineering design process. Lastly, participants will construct a 3-axis Robotic Arm and program the arm to complete autonomous challenges using Arduino Uno.
Dates: January 14-16, 2020
Participants will use AppInventor's drag-and-drop programming to develop apps that propose a solution to quality education. Their apps will have the opportunity of being published in the Google Play Store.

Fan favorite! Past participants now have the opportunity to return to develop more complex video games that include multiple levels and advanced game mechanics. Through their video game, participants will reflect one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Dates: November 12-14, 2019
Students learned about computer science through "unplugged" activities, programmed their robot friends around a maze, designed and coded video games centered around social issues like animal cruelty and bullying using drag-and-drop programming, and pitched their games in front of the group.
Over 15 days at the Portage High School, 10 female students in elementary and middle school learned about computer science through "unplugged" activities, coded video games and apps, designed websites, picked at electronic componenets in a computer, and programmed Arduinos that they later presented to their families.
