Computer Coding 2015 @ UCA

2015 Coding

Computer Coding 2015 @ UCA for middle and high school students is a summer program sponsored by the Department ofMathematics, Department of Computer Science, and STEM Institute at UCA.

The goal of this program is to provide kids with an early opportunity to learn computer programming. The students will be taught basic programming concepts, various simple computing techniques and problem solving skills with some hands-on project work.  “Scratch” and/or on-line resources will be introduced so students can practice and work on their projects.  Students will learn important basic mathematical and computer concepts that improve their creative thinking, logical reasoning, problem solving, and team collaboration skills.

The program will be conducted by Mr. Sudheer Kavi, a Senior Solutions Developer at Acxiom and an adjunct professor of Computer Science at UCA.

When: June 9-July 3, 2015

Where: Math and Computer Science Building, UCA Campus

Cost: $75 per student

Engineering is Elementary

Engineering is Elementary (EiE) is a curriculum program that integrates engineering with elementary science topics. Connections with literacy, social studies and mathematics can also be made.

The Attraction is Obvious: Designing Meglev Systems
Designing Meglev SystemsInnovative “meglev” or magnetic levitation trains move by using magnets instead of wheels.

During this workshop participants will explore the concepts behind these concepts. The explorations are a vehicle for technological innovations behind these trains to come alive for students in this transportation-engineering unit. The participants will have access to all materials that are needed to implement this unit in their classroom.

Two sessions available:

  • February 17th & 24th 4:30pm to 8:00pm (must attend both dates)
  • March 4th – 9:00am – 3:30pm
