Summer School - Computers & Robotics

Introduction to Computer Science 


The FUNdamentals of Computer Science takes you beyond being just a user of technology, you become the producer by studying the insides of the computer from hardware to software. In this course students will learn about the principles of computer science in a hands-on environment that includes plenty of time to explore and create. Topics will include Internet security and safety, data representation, exposure to programming principles (HTML, JavaScript, Arduino, JAVA), and object-oriented concepts. Using computers is easy when you've got the basics, but this course will teach you the magic that goes on in the box. No computer programming experience is necessary. Students who successfully complete this course are eligible to move onto Computer Science II. This course is open to all rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders.

Horace Mann students will receive one half-credit for this course. Session II from Monday, July 8 - Friday, July 26, 2019.

Sessions are joint-taught by Ms. Glenda Guerrero and Mr. Jason Torres. Half-way through the Session, students will flip teachers.

Introduction to Engineering & Robotics

 

Prerequisite for HM students: Departmental approval required for 9th graders.

This course encourages creativity and celebrates ingenious solutions to engineering and mechanical problems through design and construction of purpose-built computer devices and robots. Students in this course will utilize the facilities of our Robotics Innovations Lab, where they will learn to apply research design, construction, programming, and electronics.

This course would be an appropriate entry-point for a ninth grader interested in joining the robotics team. The team participates in regional and national competitions such as F.I.R.S.T. (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).

It is open to all rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders.

Horace Mann students will receive one half-credit for this course. This course runs in in Session I from Monday, June 17 - Wednesday, July 3, 2019.
