Taste of Computer Science

An inside look at computers.

You experience the wonders of computer science every time you play a game, watch video or read book on a computer, mobile phone or a tablet. Isn’t it time to look inside and get a glimpse of how computers work? In this introductory program, children get a taste of Computer Science using STEM For Kids’ innovative approach of bringing complex engineering concepts to kids in a fun way. We will break open computers, explore motherboard, learn how computers function and what makes up the World Wide Web of computing devices.

Participants engage in various hands-on activities including I-Computer, Peek Inside and children's favorite Avatar 001.

Computers and Critical Thinking

A touch of programming with hands-on critical thinking!

Education and industry experts emphasize critical thinking as a 21st century imperative. Per Bloom’s Taxonomy, critical thinking implies progressing to a higher order of thinking from just remembering facts to understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating. In this camp, children will learn to utilize spreadsheet as a tool to organize, analyze and synthesize information to help with decision making. They will also venture into programming to make fun games like an automated puzzle and MadLibs Robot

Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Make circuits.

Did you know that the brainpower inside your favorite smart device now houses over a billion transistors? These transistors are the fundamental building blocks of modern electronic devices. Small size yet more functionality has driven the technology roadmaps for electronics.

In this program participants explore the world of hardware ...electrical and electronic circuits. Participants learn basic concepts of an electric current, voltage, conduction, resistance while building circuits to do simple tasks like light a bulb, power a fan, make a functioning radio. From there they will look into electronics with transistors and integrated cirucits.

Note: Program is specifically designed for young students. No soldering! Circuit designs use regular 1.5V batteries.
