With support from SciTech and TECH CORPS we have implemented four Techie Camp® programs in Dayton for the summer! Each camp enrolled up to 20 students!
Techie Camp is a full-day, week-long summer experience designed specifically for rising 3rd - 8th grade students. The goal of Techie Camp is to engage students in activities that can stimulate a deeper interest in technology as well as provide opportunities for them to express their imaginations. Students can take a "deep dive" into Programming, Robotics, App Development or Web Development. Each camp is comprised of 20 students and led by two TECH CORPS Instructors. Below are details about these SciTech sponsored camps:
Topics - Robotics: Students dive into engineering, programming and robotics with Lego Mindstorms EV3s! After learning how to build and program a few robots, students use their inner creativity to design and build the ultimate robot!
App Development: Students explore the world of mobile app development as they learn how to use media and sensors in an android cell phone to build a functioning app. Students will then be challenged to create their own app!
Programming: Students use Scratch to learn the concepts of computer programming. They will create their own interactive art, stories and games on the computer!
3D Printing: Students learn the basics of 3D printing and the technical process of creating 3D models. They then create their own 3D models on computers and upload them to the provided 3D printer. The students are then able to take home their own 3D created model!
Location: DECA PREP or DECA Middle (TBD)
Cost: FREE - Thank You, SciTech!
Families are responsible for transportation. This opportunity is open to any students who will be rising 3rd - 5th grade (for Elementary Camps) or rising 6th - 8th (for Middle School Camps). A maximum of 20 students per camp will be selected based on their applications. Times and dates for upcoming Techie Camps will be updated on this website, so keep a look out!
