July SuperSTEM Camps

5-Day Northrop Grumman/CU Boulder SuperSTEM Camps

All summer programming is open! Happy Registering!

July camps will be offered 1 week, Monday-Friday from July 18th-22nd from 9:00-3:30 PM at the Innovation Center. We will also be offering the AMD PYNQ Bootcamp the week of July 25-29, 9:00am-3:00pm. Camps are available to Middle & High School Students. The cost is $150 per camp. Below is a list of the camps that will be offered as well as registration information.

Scholarships are available for students/families that are in need. Here is a link to the scholarship application.

– July 18-22  9:00 am -3:30 pm

– Open to only high school students

– Participants must have prior experience with Cybersecurity through the participation on a competitive CyberPatriot team, completion of a high cybersecurity course, or other documented experience in cybersecurity.

– Instruction by educators from St. Vrain Valley School District and Jeffco Public Schools

– This camp includes a full-day visit to the University of Colorado-Boulder campus. Students will tour the campus, visiting various STEM programs, meeting with graduate students, and enjoying a free lunch at CU’s amazing C4C cafeteria!

This week-long course is designed for high school students with cybersecurity experience.  Students who have taken a cybersecurity course or participated on a competitive cybersecurity team will be challenged to take their skills to the next level.  The course will challenge students to better understand cryptographic techniques, apply adversarial thinking to scenarios, identify and manage risk, and improve the cybersecurity of both traditional IT systems and the growing set of Internet of Things devices.  Participants will be practicing their skills using Capture the Flag activities.

– July 18-22, 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

– Open to high school students

– Prior experience with coding is helpful but not at all required. All interested students are welcome!

What do self-driving cars, Alexa, and iPhone’s face recognition technology have in common? They are driven by modern advances in artificial intelligence. Whether you’re interested in law, healthcare, art, or economics, AI is poised to transform every discipline and industry in the future. AI is already all around us today, and by the end of the program, students will understand the underlying concepts and motivations behind technology such as computer vision, natural language processing, and neural networks.

In this course, we will explore the foundations of machine learning and explore different applications of machine learning models. In the first half of the course, students learn AI’s core technologies including applications, foundational concepts, and programming tools through live online lectures and coding labs. Students will not only learn about different types of machine learning models, but also apply those models to real data sets. In the second half of the course, students will complete an instructor-led group project applying AI to the discipline of their choice (e.g., music, healthcare, astrophysics, finance, etc.), utilizing the programming skills they developed in the first half.

NOTE: This camp will be taught by Stanford and MIT graduates.

– July 18-22, 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

– Open to middle and high school students from any Colorado school

– This class is geared towards students with some basic experience with either coding or robotics, but no expertise in either is required.

Robots are magic. The opportunity for them to do useful things is large but has been limited to the world of roboticists. Now, with Misty II, students can learn how to unleash their potential by bringing the magic of social robots to life. 

Misty II provides a new world of opportunities with robots for business, personal, research and educational use. She has a lot of capabilities for students to explore: movement, speech, and even vision recognition. This camp will teach students the tools to start developing their own skills on the Misty II while learning about all the different ways social robots are being used in our society. 

Students will be able to code Misty either through Blockly, a block-based program, or text-based languages Python and Javascript.

How can robots be used to detect danger? During this camp we will explore how robots are used to better our planet. We will build our own mobile robots, explore how data is collected using sensors, and participate in a competition using robots to detect “dangers” around the building. Join us as we grow our knowledge and experience in working with mobile robots, using sensors to collect data, and creating visualizations of necessary data.

Interested in learning about cybersecurity?  This week-long summer course introduces students to cybersecurity and concludes with a national cybersecurity competition for middle and high school students.  The course is designed for students who have not previously participated in cybersecurity competitions and have not previously taken a cybersecurity course.  Some experience in computer science is helpful but not required.  The camp is based on the national CyberPatriot program. Topics will range from how and why to set passwords to setting security policies in both Windows and Unix.  By the conclusion of the course, you will be familiar with cybersecurity, be able to apply the concepts to both Windows and Unix operating systems, and will have the opportunity to test your skills against other beginning teams from around the country in a CyberPatriot competition.

Según la pagina web de empleos LinkedIn, el especialista en inteligencia artificial (IA) y el científico de datos son los principales trabajos emergentes para 2022, y las universidades se esfuerzan por agregar programas de pre-grado en estos campos. ¿Qué son la IA, el aprendizaje de maquina (AM) y laciencia de datos? Estas son las ideas y los algoritmos que permiten que los autos se conduzcan solos y enseñen a las aplicaciones de música comoPandora a predecir qué tipo de música te gusta. Los científicos de datos programan computadoras para encontrar patrones que los humanos mismos no podemos descubrir.

Las técnicas básicas se basan en la estadística y la programación informática. Esta clase, impartida por profesores y estudiantes de los departamentos de Matemática Aplicada y Ciencias de la Computación de la Universidad de Colorado CU (y parte de la nueva especialización en Estadística y Ciencia de Datos de CU), es una introducción divertida a las estadísticas y los algoritmos de AM, e incluye un análisis práctico de conjuntos de datos del mundo real, concluyendo con el desarrollo de un Juego de 20 Preguntas. El plan de estudios está dirigido a estudiantes de secundaria, preferiblemente con alguna experiencia previa en programación.

¿Si tiene preguntas? Póngase en contacto con los profesores Ivan Portilla (portilla@gmail.com) y Stephen Becker(stephen.becker@colorado.edu, 303-492-0662)

Importante: Esta clase se enseñará en Español por profesores bilingües (altamente calificados)
