Design for Future Lab Header




This camp is specifically designed younger children and seeks to teach STEM, programming, and computer science concepts and skills in a fun & engaging setting using Scottie GoSam Labs, and micro:bit .  Students will also enjoy pleanty of unplugged outdoor activities and hands-on STEAM experiments, projects, and demos bring the learning to life.


Design for Future Lab Header
ScottieGo is a tile based game that uses mobile devices or tablets to interpret the code blocks that children build to solve puzzles and challenges.  It is especially great for kids using programming technology for the first time as typing and operating System interface skills are not required to start learning programming concepts.  Kids use physical tiles to decompose problems and create solutions step by step, which are then scanned using the camera on a mobile device or tablet. The resulting “code” looks like Scratch. The computer then interprets and displays the results in a game-like format.  Kids enjoy the feeling of accomplishment of helping Scottie the robot navigate increasingly challenging tasks while learning about loops/repeat, functions, positive/negative numbers, and if/then conditionals

Sam Labs blocks are utilized in combination with tablet computers to solve puzzles and challenges.  With the sensor and actuator components in the Sam Labs kit, kids experience rapidly turning their ideas into physical action.  Kids will enjoy many creative challenge that require them to think about expressing a problem in cause and effect terms. Like Scottie Go, a key feature of Sam Labs is to enable kids to learn technology problem solving concepts without having typing or programming syntax skills With micro:bit students can apply foundational programming skills to implement a simple microcontroller into Lego designs and hands on tinkering projects. They will build and create unique designs that are enhance with interactive sensors response programs that activate programmable flashing lights, custom sounds, and motion.

With micro:bit students can apply foundational programming skills to implement a simple microcontroller into Lego designs and hands on tinkering projects. They expand their programming skills beyond tiles or flow coding into MakeCode block programming environment (based on Scratch programming).
