Each year, Cape Cod Community College hosts several hands-on weeklong science and technology programs for students entering grades 6, 7, and 8. Students have the opportunity to discover electricity and magnetism, computer science, robotics, graphic design, coding and flight science with a team of highly trained and experienced teachers. Students explore real world problem-solving scenarios and work in teams on design challenges. Every day will be packed with opportunities to learn, explore, and make new friends with a similar interest in science and technology! This year 4 week-long programs are available.

Minecraft/Coding - July 18-22, 2016 (WPG175-62) *New Program!
Cost: $275
Minecraft week is a STEM-based, week-long program for children entering grades 6, 7 and 8 with coding activities mixed in. Students will approach game play from a new angle to learn how to think critically about their work with the infinite possibilities of the game. Students will create themes, storylines, dialog between characters, objectives, goals and more! This week-long program will take place at Cape Cod Community College's Hyannis Center, 540 Main Street, Hyannis.

Flight Science Week - July 25-29, 2016 (WPG174-65) *New Program!
Cost: $275
Flight science week is a STEM-based, week-long program for children entering grades 6, 7 and 8. Students will work in engineering teams to build and fly 3 meter-tall (10 feet), hot air balloons. Teams will also design, build and fly payloads using their balloons. Students will also have the opportunity to experiment with model airplanes to learn why they fly and to optimize the flight of these airplanes. Students will take a break from their experiments to get checked out in a Cessna 172 as they learn to fly using flight simulators. Finally, students will put their knowledge of flight to the test when they build and optimize the flight of model gliders! This week-long program will take place at Cape Cod Community College, 2240 Iyannough Road, West Barnstable.

Art/Tech Program - August 1-5, 2016 (WPG123-62)
Cost: $275
The Art/Tech program will focus on developing cutting edge technology skills in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Adobe software basics will be covered, including demonstrations and activities using software tools and tricks. Each day of the program will build on the next. Students will have the opportunity to enhance and advance their skills through interactive and fun activities such as creating zombie/vampire versions of themselves, greeting card design, advertisement design, logo design, and much more! This week-long program will take place at Cape Cod Community College's Hyannis Center, 540 Main Street, Hyannis.

Maker Movement: Build A Bot - August 8-12, 2016 (WPG142-65)
Cost: $275
Students will join the Maker Movement and take home their “very own Arduino robot” using DC motors, servos and a sensor that can follow commands, avoid obstacles, and more! From building simple circuits to working with Arduino, a powerful and easy to use open-source prototyping platform, students will learn through active engagement as they explore concepts in electricity & magnetism, computer science and robotics. Topics and activities will include: coding, circuits, battery basics, DC motors, servos and sensors; DIY design from prototyping to product. This week-long program will take place at Cape Cod Community College, 2240 Iyannough Road, West Barnstable.

Cape Cod Community College is committed to making this program affordable to anyone. Summer of Science presented at 4C’s costs only $275 for one week, which includes snacks and all equipment necessary for the week of learning.
