Summer Tech Camp

Tech CampCalling all makers! Get started in tech with a hands on learning adventure. This summer Tech Camp uses the PodPi comics based system to teach tech. You can see samples of the comics material on the PodPi site.
Student makers will build circuits, simple robots, program them and then run their programs to see what happens. This camp explores all these topics:

  • Programming
  • Electronics
  • Javascript
  • Robotics
  • Arduino
  • Creativity

Equipment
The $75 materials fee covers the cost of the Arduino board, leds, sensors, wires, resistors and other electronic components as well as the comics. You will be able to take home all the electronics at the end of the course.

We will bring laptop computers for all students to use. If you have your own laptop you can bring it in and we will install all free software on it. This will make it so that you can keep working at home.

Sample Class Content:

We’ll go through some of the early lessons developed by the PodPi team.    

Lesson 0. GET STARTED (2nd Edition)
The adventures in learning JavaScript and electronics begins!  Receive your own custom Arghuino board (Arduino UNO R3 compatible) and a set of basic components.  This volume will take you through the steps of setting up your computer for the lessons and getting started with the components.
Lesson 1. WELCOME TO THE ISLAND

You are almost there!  Meet Ohmie and learn about potentiometers.  Meet Lumina and work with light sensors.  Meet Celsius and measure temperature.  Finally, meet Servo and his motor.  This volume will take you the the Island of PodPi where you will begin your adventures.
Lesson 2. IT’S PARTY TIME AT THE BEACH

The Pod Peeps want to celebrate your arrival on the island and are putting on a firework show, but need your help.  Follow them and take the four challenges using the skills your learned in the last two books.  Control up to three RGB LEDs using buttons, potentiometers and light sensors.
