Announcing TECH PARK’s 2017 Summer School program for
Kindergarten through 6th graders from July 24th–August 26th!
Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of every child, even those who have never used computers or tools. From basics like typing and using mice, children can soon create digital art, program games, and edit original videos. Beyond computers, children also get hands-on building robots, creating intricate string art, and more. With activities split for upper and lower grade students, everyone can work, play, and learn at their own pace.
Expert programmers and creators from our Google-partnered company have evaluated all kinds of teaching materials and programming languages to create the Summer School curriculum. Additional equipment and teaching materials are provided by sponsors like the Tenjin Sony Store, robotics and electronics company Elekit, and film companies KOO-KI and Mont Blanc Pictures.
Going on a family trip or busy with other club activities? No problem. Sign up for one day or the entire schedule–it’s up to you! Each day’s curriculum is self-contained, so you can choose activities that interest you without worry.
Create digital works using the visual programming language, Viscuit! Bring your own ideas to life making action games, digital art, music, and more.
Build your own robots to operate and play with! Use solar panels, voice recorders, and more to learn about energy and design while making electronic devices.
Use your imagination to design, build, and decorate all sorts of handicrafts. Work at your pace to create original cases, plastic sample food, candle holders, and more.
Take on director, presenter, and camera operator roles to create commercials. Learn design basics to make digital picture books and posters.
Program your own games, music, and digital art using Scratch, a programming language developed at MIT.
Connect motors, gears, and other components to create maglev trains, digital clocks, metal detectors, and more. Learn about electrical circuits and even try out soldering.
Starting from math-based string mandalas, move up to full-scale craft making with tools to build original cases, candle holders, plastic food samples, and more.
Plan and edit commercials, turn digital picture books into animations, and create your own website. Learn design basics as you think about the best way to share information.
