Summer Coding Camp

July 16, 2018-- After just four days, student and teacher participants in TR:TechReady's Summer Coding Camp shared their progress with mentors from the community and industry. Mentors from the Jersey Shore Girl Scout Council, RWJBarnabus Community Medical Center, Ocean County College, Ocean County Library, the Office of Naval Research, Navair, and Newark Public Schools came to ask probing questions, inspire student inquiry and further their exploration of Python, Javascript and Arduino Programming. cont. below

Student projects are inspired by the UN Sustainability Goals and connected to practical experiences with the Maker Mindset at their core. One group of students aligned their project with the goal of “Good Health and Well-Being.” Students collaborated using Javascript, CSS, and HTML5 to design a website that inspires people to be kind and share positivity and smiles. cont. below

Educators participating in the program come from a variety of content areas and are planning integrated curricular units to pilot in their classroom. For example, an English teacher retold the story of Beowulf through an operatic interchange of lights and sounds programmed on an Arduino board. additional photos below
