Showcase of  Advanced Programming for Grades 4 through 5 (current academic year) Jul 15, 2019-Jul 19, 2019
 

"You will start each day with Cozmo the Robot, a robot with personality that evolves as you interact with it. You will start by interacting with Cozmo by playing games, and learning to control Cozmo though an iPad app. Then you will program Cozmo using Code Lab. Finally, you will see how to program Cozmo using Python.

After lunch, you will explore Lego Robotics, a fun way to learn how to design, construct, and program robots. Use your creativity while learning how to design and program task specific robots. You will review basic design, construction, and programming techniques that will serve as an introduction to the robotics world. You will work individually and engage in peer collaboration to create robots together!

You do not need to have previous experience with Legos, robots, or computer programming."

 

"Blast is an academic commuter program [...] designed to challenge students in their areas of interest and strength."
