Youth Technical Training
Youth courses are designed to give kids the a firm grasp of computer technology and its use in academic and real-world scenarios. Students will leave the course with a deeper understanding of the technology they interact with on a daily basis. They will also gain a level of expertise that will enable them to excel in the classroom as well and open up doors to internship/employment opportunities .
[ STE(A)M Training ]
Courses designed to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering and Math concepts while
incorporating the arts.
In this course students gain pre-engineering and coding skills while having fun with Legos. Using the Lego Boost platform students are able to build awesome Lego creations and then bring them to life by coding them using MIT's SCRATCH programming language.
Audio Engineering w/ Audacity
This course introduces students to the free, open source, digital recording software Audacity. Students learn the fundamentals for the recording arts and how to setup\manage audio equipment while also exploring their passions for music and spoken word.
Students in this program learn the fundamentals of flying aerial drones from FAA licensed drone pilots. This new field of STEM introduces students to aeronautical concepts while letting them experience thrill of flying.
Graphic Design w/ Gimp
In this course we introduce students to GIMP, a free alternative to Photoshop. Students will learn how to edit photos, make logos and create their own digital art.
Web Design Fundamentals
Students gain the skills necessary to build responsive web pages using HTML and CSS web programming languages. They will also explore different technologies, such as Dreamweaver, that make web design faster and more efficient.
[ IT Fundamentals ]
Courses designed to build foundational skills
Coding from Scratch
In this coding adventure, novice programmers create fun animated stories and games while learning essential programming concepts with the Scratch. Using sprites and blocks, this drag-and-drop platform developed by MIT sets a foundation of computational thinking—an essential skill in today’s tech-driven world—by using bright visuals and engaging design.
