THANKS TO ALL WHO ATTENDED CREATIVE ME CAMP. IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS FOR OUR 'I DO, I BECOME' CAMP

If you missed our 'Creative Me' camp, and are in 4th or 5th grade, you can register for our 'I Do, I Become' camp from June 24 - 28. We will accept 9 4th thru 5th graders who will work within that group throughout camp to benefit from the same learning experiences their peers had at Creative Me camp.

Congratulations to the following After-school and Home-schooled students who took part in ACTE Regional Tech Fair! They all advanced to the State Fair. We trained them...they went up against veteran competitors...and won!

Our Robotics Sessions Focus on Computational Thinking as Campers Make Learning Connections Across Math, Creative Writing, Art and English.

Coding Skills Taught Include:
  • Sequencing
  • Loops
  • Events
  • Functions
  • Conditions
  • Variables

3 of the 15 things "Creative Me" campers will program their robots to do are:

  1. To follow and draw patterns that campers create.

  2. To sense danger and hide.

  3. To follow specific geometric shapes with varying angles.

Each Camper Will Program and Control Bots!!!

Sample Schedule and Learning Outcomes For Day One: -

I AM A CYBER SECURITY HERO

Our cyber security training module is not only about training young children to be safe online via hands-on projects in the Makerspace, storytelling with animations and art, manipulating computer codes to complete security tasks, and by using captivating themes such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Mission Impossible. It is about empowering campers to spot security breaches and bad actors, and to reject and report the same rather than following blindly or living in silence. The intrinsic value of this type of training to parents is peace of mind. Your child will be online whether known or unknown to you, and some bad actors on social media or from the dark corners of the Internet will always be trying to steal their innocence and personal identifiable information. By giving these young children real-world training via a myriad of different but interconnected activities over several hours, they will acquire the tools, mindset and knowledge to keep themselves from being online victims. This training will also empower children to make better choices concerning everyday safety issues.

DAY ONE: Program Schedule

In the Makerspace, campers will use a variety of resources to create unique tokens and keys to verify identity and facilitate legitimate communication and information exchange. The tokens and keys will be used to discuss why mismatched ones open the doorway to personal identifiable information and identity thefts. Concepts taught include social engineering, phishing, spamming, Trojans, back doors, hacking and 'stranger danger.'

DAY ONE: Program Schedule

In the Coding Center, campers will learn about the nuts and bolts of cyber security as they go online to build defenses against virtual bad actors by manipulating codes in a gaming environment. They will assume the role of a chief technology officer of a start-up that is the target of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks. Campers will complete coding challenges to strengthen their cyber defense and thwart their attackers.

Board Game Design With Todd

DAY ONE: Program Schedule

Getting into the game! A big part of understanding one's role in a situation such as cyber security, is to understand exactly what it is and to think critically. Campers will look at several types of board games and play some as well. They will learn new concepts, new words and new strategies to help them with the board game designing process as well as to outsmart their opponents. Campers will compete and conquer by thinking.

Graphics Design with Stephanie

DAY ONE: Program Schedule

Using popular themes such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Mission Impossible, campers will design their own hero badge after collaborating with one another. Campers will learn about what information to share and not to share as a part business and everyday life. Campers will think of themselves in a certain role, describe their responsibilities, and then decide on their ideal badge  to create and print.
