The Tech Creations program is comprised of four courses. Each course is one week-long and concludes with in-class presentations of their creations by the students before moving on to the next course. Classes will consist of no more than 10 students.
3D Modelling & Printing
Discover the rapidly expanding world of 3D!
In this course, you’ll discover how to create intricate 3D models and design moving parts powered by a motor. You’ll gain comprehensive knowledge of the printing process from start to finish while learning proper operation, maintenance, and safety procedures. Stand back and observe as your print takes shape, layer-by-layer, then connect your self-designed motor and watch your creations spring to life!
Film & Photography
Develop your own style of seeing and shooting the world at a professional level!
Working with an experienced photographer, industry professionals, and your fellow classmates, you will develop new ways of looking at the same image while learning a wide variety of technical and artistic approaches. Get behind the camera, learning the craft of photography or film through a combination of in-class instruction and individual course assignments. Over the course of the camp, you’ll learn how to capture many different genres, including commercial, fine art, photojournalism, and much more.
Coding through Minecraft
Learn computer programming through MinecraftEDU, the educational version of the popular game!
Get an introduction to programming through Minecraft Modding with Java. Minecraft’s open architecture allows you to access its Java source code to create just about anything you can imagine. While modding with Java, you’ll learn how to create your own custom pickaxes, your own enemies, even your own dimensions. Use Java coding to give your creations special properties and then try them out within the game itself!
Mobile App Development
Create your own mobile application!
Using Google’s newest mobile app platform, Flutter, you’ll learn how to develop your own mobile application. Flutter is a coding platform that allows for both Android and iOS functionality and is based on the programming languages C, C++, and Dart. Take your app home with you at the end of camp and keep modifying its functionality as you continue to develop your skills.
