Week 1: July 8th - 12th

Raspberry Pi, Circuits, &
Programming with DIY Laptop

What’s it about:
This course extends knowledge of basic programming and circuitry to teach students to build their own unique projects using the Raspberry Pi and a variety of sensors. Students will learn Python programming basics, electronic circuits, Linux basics, and remote communication with a Raspberry Pi. At the end of the week, students will take their Raspberry Pi-powered laptops, code, and course materials home with them!
What’s the takeaway:
  • Students will develop skills with Raspberry Pi Setup & Basics
  • They will understand Command Line / Terminal Interfaces, Python Coding and will develop a knowledge in Electronic Circuits.

Course Fee: $845

Week 2: July 15th - 19th

Robotics with Arduino

What’s it about:

Students dive into a week-long program in robotics and electrical engineering! Learn basic programming and electronic circuitry skills and apply them using Sparkfun’s Arduino RedBot platform. Teach your robot to navigate a maze, and end the week with a balloon-popping competition! At the end of the week, students will bring their robots home to continue the learning!

What’s the takeaway:
  • Students will learn programming in the Arduino environment
  • Creating electronic circuits
  • Troubleshooting and logical problem-solving.

Course Fee: $645

Week 3: July 22nd - 26th

3D Printing & Product Design
SESSION A

What’s it about:

Students will learn how to create 3D models using professional CAD software, feel comfortable going through the 3D Printing Process with Prusa i3 MK3s and similar 3D Printers and slicing 3D models with CURA, and think like a product designer.

What’s the takeaway:
  • Students will develop skills in “Design Thinking” and invent a product that solves a real-life problem.
  • They’ll gain knowledge in 3D Modeling using parametric CAD software, create and print working parts.
  • Also, they’ll take a project from idea to a clean and presentable prototype.

Course Fee: $545

Week 4: July 29th - Aug 2nd

3D Printing & Product Design SESSION B

What’s it about:

Students will learn how to create 3D models using professional CAD software, feel comfortable going through the 3D Printing Process with Prusa i3 MK3s and similar 3D Printers and slicing 3D models with CURA, and think like a product designer.
