2018 NERD C.A.M.P/Summer Arts Bridge Student Application
ASMSA is excited to offer three Summer Camp opportunities for students in Summer 2018.

Rising high school sophomores (members of the Class of 2021) have the opportunity to apply to attend a one-week residential summer camp June 17 - 22 that immerses students in ASMSA's approach to learning. The camp is no cost and includes tuition, housing, meals, and class supplies..

Students may choose from one of three options:

1) (Summer Arts Bridge) Studio Art:
Studio Art helps grow students' excitement about the arts. Students will create abstractions with collage and dry media as well as explore representation through experimentation with varying wet and dry media.

2) (Summer Arts Bridge) Folk Music and Acoustics:
Folk Music and Acoustics class is, perhaps, our most unique course. Students will receive a brief introduction to the science of sound as it applies to music combined with building and learning to play cardboard guitars.

3) (NERD C.A.M.P) Computer Analysis, Math & Programming :
Computer Programming and Mathematics courses emphasize conceptual understanding, multiple representations and connections, mathematical modeling, mathematical problem solving technology and alternative assessments. Proposed offerings are include:

Explore the World of Fractals through Programming - We will explore fractals using programming methods to create cool pictures. Campers will learn how to write & manipulate code to personalize images. After attending this camp students will be able to design their own images at home.

Create Android Apps with MIT App Inventor - We will learn how to create mobile apps for the Android platform using MIT App Inventor, a drag-and-drop programming language suitable for beginners. You are welcome to use your own device, but we have tablets that you can borrow if you're not an Android owner.

Inventing Calculus: The foundations of Calculus will be explored with an intuitive approach.

A Gentle Introduction to Number Theory - A brief introduction to topics from number theory that don't require mathematical skills beyond algebra. Topics will include a study of prime numbers, Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Ratio, modular arithmetic and cryptography.
