- Students may attend one or two week-long full day programs (9am–4pm). The lunch break from noon–1pm.
Cape Cod Community College hosts a hands-on weeklong science and technology program for students entering grades 6, 7, and 8. Students have the opportunity to discover electricity and magnetism, computer science, and robotics 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!
Art/Tech Program - August 3-7, 2015
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!
Maker Movement - August 10-14, 2015
Students will join the Maker Movement! 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: Battery basics, Junkbots: robots from household items, Simple circuits: from blinking LEDs to controlling servos; "making" music: the circuit synth, introduction to cs with ALICE, and 3-d printing: DIY design from prototyping to product.
Cape Cod Community College is committed to making this program affordable to anyone. Summer of Science presented at 4C’s costs only $250 for one week, which includes snacks, lunch, and all equipment necessary for the week of learning.
Cape Cod Community College 2015 Summer of Science Program has been made possible by the Cape Cod Regional STEM Network.
