Grades 7& 8 (Virtual Programs) 

Electronic Gadget Design with Arduinos

In this program, participants will learn the basics of circuitry and engage in hands-on activities using an Arduino board to learn how LED and water sensors function. By the end of this experience, participants will be exploring Biomedical Engineering as they design their own Electrocardiogram (ECG) to use on friends and family! 

  • Virtual Program Materials: Participants will need to purchase the following Arduino Kit (or one with similar components) on their own, in order to participate in the program. Additional supplies will be mailed to participants for the 5th and 6th sessions. All materials need to be purchased before the first day of the program. Participants need to log on each week using a laptop with USB connectivity (PC or Mac capability). 

  • STEM Focus: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering​

  • Cost $200

Game Development with Python

Have you ever been interested in creating your own video games? Have a love for computer science? In this intro to python course students will dive deep in this computer language while building their very own game at the end of the six week program. 

  • Virtual Program Materials: Participants will need to download this free EDI to participate in this virtual program.​ All materials need to be downloaded before the first day of the program.​

  • STEM Focus: Computer Science​ , Game Development

Video Design for YouTube

Have you ever been interested in creating your own YouTube videos from gameplay walkthroughs to ASMRs or even music videos? In this program, participants will learn the basics of video editing with Filmora9 Wondershare software. From transitions to special effects, participants will be able to tell the story they’ve always wanted to design on video.  

  • Virtual Program Materials: Participants will need to download a free, software, Filmora9 to participate in this virtual program.​ All materials need to be downloaded before the first day of the program.
