RoboCamp

The RoboCamp summer robotics camp is a one-week day camp that will engage middle and high school students in team, project-oriented activities that utilize laptops and the SumoBot Robot (Produced by Parallax Inc. - www.parallax.com). Activities include creatively programming the robots to draw different shapes and imagery or performing music and dance routines, as well as Sumo competitions. The design of the project activities encourages team exploration as well as independent operations.

Xbox Game Programming Camp

The Xbox game programming camp is a one-week day camp that will engage middle and high school students in team, project-oriented activities that utilize laptops, XNA Framework (which is provided by Microsoft), and Xbox 360 gaming consoles. Students will learn coding and programming principles and develop an understanding of the role of physics and mathematics in game design. Students will have the opportunity to "play" the games and therefore to see the results of their programming.

Android AppCamp

The AppCamp is a one week summer activity that will introduce participants to the skills needed to develop mobile applications for Android phone and Tablet platforms. Apps will be developed using the AppInventor toolkit originally developed by Google and now supported by the MIT Media Lab. This is an online tool that students can continue to use at home after the camp. A number of apps will be developed using animation, user interaction and phone services such as texting, phone services, GPS, web services, google maps and more!
