Session one (5/30 -6/9)

Signals, radios and Morse Code, oh my! Students will learn how to send Morse Code through electrical simple switches which they construct from batteries, wires, and a bulb. They will explore the impact of electrical communications on society and focus on exploring electric message systems!


Session two (6/12 - 6/23)

Break out your inner rock star and make your own musical instrument! Students will design, create and demonstrate in this musical summer session using various materials and tools. Sky's the limit with what you can create. Trombone, drums, boxed guitar... you name it. Set free your inner artist to design and create it!

Session three (6/26 - 7/7)

Make your own raspberry pi and create coding for it! Raspberry Pi is a dynamic micro-controller that is capable of just about anything a computer is. Seriously! It runs with the Python programming language, and is a great way to learn about hardware hacking and coding. This credit-card sized computer is sure to be a delectable treat!
