The Application Deadline is Thursday, November 22nd

Workshop Goals

January 7th to 11th, 2019

Bio-Chemistry

High School Workshop

The goal of the workshop is to engage students in a series of hands-on activities to teach them biology and chemistry techniques and concepts.

Computer Science

High School Workshop

The goal of the workshop is to engage students in a learning experience about computer science algorithms and their applications through real world experience, hands-on coding labs, class discussions, and partner presentations.

Music Visualization

High School Workshop

The goal of this workshop is to allow students to render music into a visual form in an interactive and creative fashion; by guiding the students through construction of a programmable LED array that can be controlled through a web server.

Robotics

Middle School Workshop

The goal of this workshop is to engage students in an interactive, hands-on build-a-robot-car-and-obstacle-course challenge to teach them coding and design concepts, as well as integrating the practice of revising and iterating through improved versions.

Bio-Chemistry Learning Outcome

Josh Xiong & Justin Cordero

High School Workshop | Grades 9-12

Prerequisites: Intro to Bio/Chem

Students will be able to partake in a series of hands-on experiments that will broaden their understanding of various chemistry and biology topics. Each day is filled with labs and fun activities! By the end of the workshop, students will learn chemistry and biology concepts and techniques.

Computer Science Learning Outcome

Malika Shahrawat & Stuti Vishwabhan

High School Workshop | Grades 9-12

Prerequisites: Programming 1

Students will learn a variety of computer science concepts including: shortest path (BFS, DFS, Djikstra), classification (kNN, SVM, ID trees, neural nets), mini-max, and constraints. Students will go through coding challenges that solidify their understanding of these concepts. Students will also focus on one particular concept and come up with a real world application then present it to other students.

Music Visualization Learning Outcome

Kentaro Tanaka & Slava Kim

High School Workshop | Grades 9-12

Prerequisites: Programming 1

Students will learn a variety of design and engineering concepts such as basic programming, circuits, and robotics. In the challenge, they must learn how to work as a team and manage tasks in order to solve problems as efficiently as possible. They will be given a variety of tools and resources and they must decide amongst themselves what they will design.

Robotics Learning Outcome

Emily Kim & Matt Tung

Middle School Workshop

Prerequisites: None

Students will learn a variety of design and engineering concepts such as programming, circuits, and robotics. In the challenge, they must learn how to work as a team and manage tasks in order to solve problems as efficiently as possible. Students will design and create robots in order to tackle a developing environment as they compete against one another. They will be given a variety of tools and resources and must decide amongst themselves what they will design.
