Open Demos:

It should go without mention that every student will arrive at the Community Center on time and ready to go at the start of every day. Regardless, at the beginning of each day, some sort of technical demonstration is planned. This will give an opportunity to showcase some of the applications of the skills students will be developing. Also, the demonstrations will give a chance for those individuals who have run into some unforeseen circumstance more time to arrive.


Friday and Saturday are Workshop/Class Days. There are 6 Workshop Slots, each 90-minute-long, that will focus on some technical or computer related subject. Sample Classes: Presentations with Google Docs, 3D modeling with Sketch Up, Scratch Programming, and more!

Team Forming/Mentors:

Sunday is project day. Students will pick (or be assigned) projects based off the classes on Friday and Saturday. Ideally, Mentors would be assigned to each student team to provide guidance and direction toward the project goal.
