Youth Programs 3 d printing

SUNY Oswego and the Division of Extended Learning offer a number of academic programs for youth.  Each program is an enriching academic experience that encourages students to unleash their imagination and discover their passion.  The purpose of our  programs is to indulge students in fun, project-based learning experiences while they explore the application of science, technology, engineering, the arts and math as it relates to their personal interests.  

During summer 2017 students participated in workshops like LEGO™ Robotics, Minecraft Animators, 3D Printing, Star Wars Animation and more.  Registration for Summer 2017 programs is closed.  Please check back in Spring 2018 so your child can have fun, hands on learning experiences.  They will experience a social and collaborative environment that encourages creative thinking and team problem solving.   Skill sets such as beginning level programming, scripting, logic statements, 3D design and physics are tools the students will utilize.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

3D Print: Print Your First 3D Creation! ( Ages 7-14)

Learn how to prepare a model for 3D printing. Using web-based software such as Tinker Cad or 3-D Slash, kids will sculpt, render and print their own 3D creation.   No prior experience is necessary and students will use the 3D printer in Penfield Library to print their 3D creation to share with friends and family.  Students will also work in small groups to create a board game piece to showcase their work!             

APP Adventure: The Next Level  (Ages7-14)

Continue your quest to make the next viral app! Whether you want to move past the basic techniques learned in App Attack or want to jump right in, we are ready for you! Students will choose from a selection of different web-based (HTML5) mobile apps and explore more in-depth programming concepts. Student-created apps will be accessible on a Black Rocket site and can be played on any mobile device or computer. No prior experience is necessary and students do not need to own a smartphone or tablet to take the class. 

ArcadeCAMP 1 (Ages 7-14)

This workshop provides an introduction to programming and game development for kids ages 8 and up developed for Scratch. With ArcadeCAMP your child will learn how to program their own computer games by recreating the most popular games in history – from the early arcade hits such as Pong and Frogger to ultimate video-game blockbusters such as Snake or Tetris. Your child will have full access to 4 game development workshops designed to inspire and teach. Materials for each workshop include: introduction on video game history illustrated with pictures and animations, programming lessons, step-by-step programming guides, downloadable graphics and other extras, (including games that they create and can bring home!!) 

LEGO Robotics: CityCAMP WeDo (Ages 7-14)

This is our longest-running and most successful course. It was designed so that keen young engineers of the future can learn about new technologies and robots that could improve life in a modern city. To see the solutions in action, children build and program robots of our design.  Your child will experience robotics lessons designed to inspire and teach. Your child will get extensive introduction to the lesson illustrated with graphics and animation, detailed building instructions for building the LEGO WeDo robot, step-by-step programming guide, educational mini games and other extras.

NEW! Lego® Comics: Design Your Own Adventure! (Ages 7-14)

In this LEGO adventure YOU are the star! Pick your favorite LEGO genre or create an alternate universe to create a digital illustrated story or graphic novel. Whether you want to fight alongside Superheroes, create a Minecraft story, hang with the Nexo Knights, or go into space with Rey and Finn, the only requirement is that you put yourself in the story! All students will end the class with a digital comic book that can be shared with friends and family on a password protected website! Students will work in teams for most of the program.

LEGO Robotics: StarCAMP WeDo (Ages 7-14)

Take your imagination into outer space. Constructing and then programming futuristic robot models is a great introduction to physics and astronomy. To further spark young imaginations, some robots resemble those seen in science fiction movies.  Your child will experience robotics lessons designed to inspire and teach. Your child will get extensive introduction to the lesson illustrated with graphics and animation, detailed building instructions for building the LEGO WeDo robot, step-by-step programming guide, educational mini games and other extras. 

Mindstorms: (Ages 11+)

This workshop is a version of CityCAMP, designed for the newest LEGO robotics set.  The course focuses on how robotics and technology can make life easier in a modern city. This time, however, we build robots using EV3’s new set of electronic bricks and program them with different software. While building and programming 12 intricately designed robot models, students learn how maths, physics and extraordinary machines can bring exciting goals within reach.

Minecraft® Animators (Ages: 7-14)
