COMPUTER SCIENCE ADVENTURE ZONE

MARSHALL UNIVERSITY

Finch Robot
  • CS A-Z will be held at Marshall University onJune 10th, 2017 and July 8th, 2017 middle and high school students. With this half-day camp, you will discover the fun nature of Computer Science and make new friends. We provide various computer science related activities including playing with Finch Robot, developing a mobile app without coding, flying drones and taking pictures, creating music using Sonic Pi, writing a program, meeting scientists, and much more.

  • The Purpose of CS A-Z is to develop interest in computer science and to make students aware of how the computer works and how it helps our life. Students will also learn how to solve the everyday life problems with computing and programming. CS A-Z will provide fun filled hands-on activities throughout the camp to enjoy while learning computing.

  • Parents are responsible for registering the students and drop and pick up the students on the day of the camp. No transportation will be provided by CS A-Z camp. To join CA A-Z, parents should agree terms and conditions of Marshall University and Division of Computer Science and sign the agreement during registration (or before events). Parents are welcome to to stay and attend the introduction session of the program.

Registration

Students may register for only one of the two dates, the same activities will be offered on both days. Registration is $20.

Flying Drones

Drones come in a wide variety of sizes, with the large drone mostly used for military purposes such as the Predator drone, other smaller drones which can be launched by hand, to other unmanned aircraft which require short runways. An unmanned aerial vehicle system has two parts, the drone itself and the control system.

Finch Robot

The Finch is a robot for computer science education. Its design is the result of a four year study at Carnegie Mellon's CREATE lab. The Finch is designed to support an engaging introduction to the art of programming.

Mobile App Development

Mobile application development is to denote the act or process by which application software is developed for mobile devices, such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones.

Sonic Pi

Sonic Pi is an open-source programming environment developed, designed to explore and teach programming concepts through the process of creating new sounds. This is a scheme of work which emphasises the importance of creativity in the learning process and gives users the control to turn their sonic ideas into reality.
