Wize Academy

*No prior experience needed. A tablet/iPad (For kids age 6 - 9) and Computer (For kids 9-13) is required to program the robot. Students are encouraged to bring their own device. We will have some spare device if a student need one as well.*

3D Designing and Printing (June 28th-July 1st)
In this camp, transition from drawing in 2D to designing in 3D in minutes – no CAD or computer experience necessary! Students get to take home the objects they design and print. Material cost of $20 will collected on the first day of camp. 

Battle Bots (June 21st-24th)
Battle Bots using Lego Robotics - Learn how to build your WeDo and Ev3 bots and bring them to action by adding code!

Robot Petting Zoo (July 5th-8th)
In this camp, students participate in "makethon" to create a robotic pet to delight and inspire visitors to the petting zoo. They construct their pets from familiar materials such as cardboard and craft supplies and use robotic components and programming to bring their creations to life. Material cost of $20 will be collected on the first day of camp.

Fly and Code Drones (July 12th-15th)
perience the thrill of control, coding and flying Drones! Learn computer science fundamentals thru hands-on experimentation. Use both block and text-based coding to control drones. Start with simple programs where you automate drone’s flight path, learn to build your own custom drone controller.

Smart Home Design (July 19th-22nd)
Use various robotics components like motors, sensors, LEDs, mini computer and recyclable materials to build a model home. Then use artificial intelligence (based upon IBM Watson) to turn your home into a smart home. Material cost of $20 will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Augmented and Virtual Reality (July 26th-29th)
amp, students explore the creation of virtual tours, storytelling, games and simulations. The beauty of this approach is that it allows for creativity and coding in multiple dimensions (3D, voiceover, music, video etc.). Cardboard VR goggle will be provided to each participant. Material cost of $20 will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Game Design (August 2nd-5th)
game-creation website where users design and upload their own games -- and play games that other people have created -- in a multiplayer environment. This course is a perfect way to learn programming, 3D modeling & game design with Roblox Studio. Learners make amazing professional quality games that they can play with friends and family, or even sell on Roblox marketplace. MIT Scratch is a block based programming language kids use all over the world to create games, animations and stories. We will focus on game development using MIT Scratch in this camp.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (August 9th-12th)
In this camp, students learn about various machine learning models like Tensorflow, IBM Watson and more and uses the knowledge to work on projects that exposes them to areas where we have seen most usage of AI & ML to date. They get to work on projects that exposes them to areas where we have seen most usage of AI & ML to date. For example: Visual inspection, image classification & object recognition, Speech and handwriting recognition (like smart speakers), Self-driving cars & reinforcement learning, Smart Chatbots.


*No prior experience needed. A tablet/iPad (For kids age 6 - 9) and Computer (For kids 9-13) is required to program the robot. Students are encouraged to bring their own device. We will have some spare device if a student need one as well.*


* Adjustments and discounts will be applied during checkout if applicable. *
