Renewable Energy Exploration: Off-Shore Wind *New Program for 2019! 
Dates: July/August 2019, exact dates TBA
Cost: $299

Join us for a STEM-based interactive four-day program for students entering grades 6, 7, and 8, understanding the landscape of local energy generation and the global environment, and social issues around energy generation. Students will learn about several different types of renewable energy resources, including off-shore wind. Students will engage in several hands-on renewable energy related projects and activities. 

Advanced Design Program
July 2019, exact dates TBA
Cost: $299

Advanced Design is a creative, STEM-based, four-day program for children entering grades 8 and 9.The Advanced Design Program will focus on developing cutting edge technology skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Muse. These programs make up many of the core elements that professional designers use. Students will work with Photoshop on projects such as photo manipulation, combination, and improvement. When using Illustrator, students will learn about digital drawing, typography and create their own logos. Exploring projects such as poster designs, students will grow their understanding of layout and creative design principles.

Students will also work with Augmented Reality - the same techniques used to create Pokemon Go, and Google Glasses. Students will use Muse to first explore how to design a visually appealing, and easy to navigate an "app". Then each student will create their own website that will allow them to showcase the work they have done.

In addition to the hands on skills using Adobe Creative Suite, students will learn the "why" of design. Why does one design look better than another? As well as how to create a visually pleasing image. 

Maker Movement
Dates: August 2019, exact dates TBA
Cost: $299

Students will join the Maker Movement! Maker Movement is a STEM-based, four-day program for children entering grades 6, 7, and 8. From building simple circuits to working with Arduino, a powerful and easy to use open-source prototyping platform, students will learn through active engagement as they explore concepts in electricity & magnetism, computer science and robotics.
