Have you ever seen extraordinary drone videos and wanted to be able to create your own? Here’s your chance! This camp explores aerial videography and photography techniques, and you will get your hands on the controls on some of the most advanced drones on the market. We will learn how these advanced drones work, how to maintain them, and most importantly how to fly! Over the course of the camp, you can go from never having flown a drone, to creating a portfolio of fun aerial photography and videography to take with you.

  • June 6-9 from 12:00-3:00 p.m.
  • June 13-16 from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

Wonder what you can do to improve the health of your community? This camp is definitely for you! In this camp, you will apply biomedical engineering principles to solve real world health problems such as cardiovascular issues, mental illnesses, HIV/AIDS and more! Campers will learn more about each health concern including its origins, how it’s diagnosed, and how it’s treated. Then, after being introduced to circuiting and coding with the Arduino Microcontroller, campers will design and build multiple projects, including their own motoring device to address a health concern of their choice. No experience with coding, circuits, or Arduino required to join!

  • Cost: $300 (Scholarships are available for students in need. Please apply here).
    • Dates: June 13-16, June 20-23 Noon-3:00 pm
    • Location: Innovation Center
    • Target Audience: Students finishing grades 6-8
    • Capacity: 8 students
    • Description:  In AI Pioneers, our emerging engineers will learn how to create projects for social good with Python programming language. Through hands-on coding, students will learn how computers can use data to solve complex problems like natural language processing and computer vision. Our students will explore the ways they can meaningfully use AI to predict heart disease, create social robots, assist with disaster relief, and navigate autonomous vehicles. In our curriculum, we emphasize ethical responsibility, career paths in artificial intelligence, and interdisciplinary applications! From beginner to advanced coders, we envision a future where students of all backgrounds can contribute towards a bright future of inclusivity and technological advancement.

    Activities Include:

    • Machine Learning Talks:  Learn about machine learning algorithms and techniques in a uniquely interactive, engaging format, before you apply that knowledge in live coding labs.
    • Hands-On Python Coding: Develop valuable skills in Python, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in our hands-on coding labs, using cutting-edge research to solve real-world problems like heart disease prediction, assistive technologies, and more.
    • Project-Based Learning: In our final capstone project, students will be able to apply their newly acquired talents in a collaborative, challenging environment, applying AI to an in depth project Examples include allocating resources for disaster relief, sketch recognition, or creating a website to recommend movies.
    • June 6-9 from 8:30-11:30 a.m.
    • June 20-23 from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

    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. The best thing is – o coding experience necessary! **NOTE: Limited availability of 15 students per camp.

    • June 20-23 from 12:00-3:00 p.m.

    How does Starbucks reduce their carbon footprint in the world? Can you help solve real business case challenges? This camp explores different ways businesses can be sustainable and how companies can make a difference to our environments. Learn presentation skills, financial issues, and meet with a few business experts. A case solution competition will be a part of this experience and the team winners will walk away with Prizes.
