BEGINNING GAME CODING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE Grades: 9th-12th

  • Workshop Lead: Kunal Mishra, Student (UC Berkeley, Public Health/Computer Science —11 Year SSC alumni, Team Science Mentorship participant)
  • Workshop Description: Computer Science (CS) is really all about teaching you how to be very good at being very bossy and about getting what you want. As a programmer, your job is to give orders to the computer through the use of a “language” that the computer understands. In this workshop you will learn how games and apps are made and you will learn this by coding a game called Hog.
  • Prerequisite: Strong in mathematics and science or completion of Algebra 1.

FUNDAMENTALS OF FLIGHT Grades: 7th-8th

  • Workshop Leads: Kanu Vyas, Engineer (The Boeing Company—19 year SSC Volunteer) Van Richardson, Engineer (The Boeing Company—9 year SSC Volunteer)
  • Workshop Description: With an emphasis on FUN: students enjoy performing many simple experiments that demonstrate the fundamental principles involved with both lighter-than-air and heavier-than-air flight. We will build and fly a Rogallo-wing hang glider, as well as paper and balsa-wood airplanes, while learning about control surfaces and their functions by performing wind tunnel tests on wing sections you make yourself. You will also make water bottle rockets and hand-launched helicopters.
  • Subjects covered: Mechanics and Physics.
