Investigation Camps are designed to give 6th, 7th and 8th graders a chance to pursue their interests with a deeper dive into topics that interest them. Investigation: Technology classes will meet in small, spaced out groups in our state of the art computer labs with our cutting edge air filtration system making EAGLES/EDGE the best place to investigate safely. Highly trained instructors will make the learning fun, and we’ll make sure there is time each day for some outdoor games and camp connections to be made!
Investigation:Technology Week 4, July 12-16, 2021: Robotics Challenge – students and instructors work together to solve a problem- with robots!
LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 is a hands-on, cross-curricular class that engages students by teaching them to design, build and program their robots while helping them develop essential skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. Programming is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line to form commands allowing students to build simple programs, and then easily and intuitively build on their skills until they are developing complex algorithms. Kids will learn to use the Gyro, Ultrasonic, Color and Touch sensors in their programs while learning the building blocks of programming such as sequencing, loops, conditionals, events and Object Oriented Programming Principles.
NEW! Investigation:Technology Week 6, July 23-20, 2021:Game Design with Unity
Bring your vision to life today. Unity’s game development engine empowers you with all you need to create 2D and 3D games like the pros! This camp is designed with the absolute beginner in mind; no prior experience with Unity is required. You will start by exploring the Unity interface, and learning how to manipulate objects in the editor. You will implement functionality using C# scripts, add animation and manage lighting for the game and finally rendering a functional game you and your friends can enjoy!
Your child will learn: How to navigate a 3D game engine, as well as a wide variety of skills by using a 3D world. Learn how to animate, write C# scripts, use variables and functions, work with gravity, create 3D objects, and much more, to create the game of their dreams!
Investigation: Technology Week 8, August 9-13, 2021: Learn to Code- learning coding skills with Python and Java
Coding is one of the most lucrative skills in the job market. Learning Python and Java offers you the skills necessary to stand out on your college applications. Coding teaches you to navigate your way through complex computational problems. From basic computational thinking, you will create your own word-based games and use the python arcade library to create superb games with compelling graphics. Expand your knowledge and skill set with object-oriented programming in Java. Learn about objects, methods, classes and use that to create card game simulations, parking garage software and basically any simulation that requires object interaction.
Your child will learn: How to create Python and Java programs by learning how to use variables, problem solving, loops, and methods. These will all be incorporated in creating different games and projects and learn to create their own programs in Java relating to any object based situation.
