Inkscape: The Beginning
A beginning class in using the open-source Inkscape drawing program. For kids who like to draw but have never used Inkscape. Every day you will create your own original art and send it home electronically. As you create you will continue to learn more of the program’s tools to express your vision. At the end of the week, you will take home a digital portfolio of your art on a flash drive. Inkscape is freely available for macOS, Windows, and Linux operating systems so you can continue your creative adventures.
In this advanced camp, students who already have experience with LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology will take their skills and understanding to the next level. We will use the newest generation of Lego® robotics equipment (Spike! Prime) to build on the skills already developed in many introductory courses. Students will work in pairs to design, build, test, and program robots using math and science concepts. The sky’s the limit as we will be able to dig deeper than they have in the past. Through this experience, they will learn critical thinking and team-building skills. It’s fun, it’s exciting, and the skills they learn will last a lifetime.
Get ready to blast off! After learning about what propels rockets into space, students make and launch many types of rockets including air, straw, and chemical. Like a real astronaut, we will plan a mission to Mars by deciding what to take and finding a way to power the station. As we check in on the Mars rover Curiosity and spacecraft Juno, Cassini, and New Horizons, we’ll find out about the newest discoveries in space. If you are ready to travel the solar system and beyond, come join Collegiate science teacher Betsy Stern for a week of imagination, discovery, and fun.
