WHICH DAY(S) ARE YOU INTERESTED IN APPLYING FOR?
Students will be introduced to Virtual Reality (VR) using the Unity Platform, Python programming language for learning to compose music pieces, and Engineering Design Thinking and Fabrication.

Virtual Reality (VR). This session is for the beginner who wants to get into the world of virtual reality. We will make a Virtual Reality Application for Microsoft Windows using the Unity3D Software. We will build an application as a windows program and talk about how to get that out to the world. At this session conclusion you will be a Virtual Reality Developer, ready to create wonderful VR experiences.

Python Coding. Python is unique in that it’s easy to understand, even for a beginner. Python powers the world’s second-largest search engine: YouTube. Scientists use Python to work with large data sets, build machine intelligence, and software engineers build neural networks and other forms of artificial intelligence with this versatile language.

Design Thinking and Fabrication. This session is for the beginner who wants to integrate technology in our world and public spaces. You will be given the challenge to engineer 1 of 3 ideas that uses technology, like Internet of Things (IoT) enabled technology, circuits, Bluetooth with everyday objects and devices.
