Participants will focus on robotics and project lifecycle from planning to testing and launching. They will have access to Arduino, Raspberry Pi, 3d printers, audio/video editing, and tearing apart and building computers. Logic based problem solving will be explored with short-term and long-term consequences in mind.
Goals of the Program:
- Develop skills and real world solutions.
- Starting and maintaining a digital legacy
- Become stewards of respectful and careful digital interaction
- Maintaining comfortable and inclusive environments where ideas and excellence thrive.
Boundless Connections and Strength Solutions are collaborating to develop a tech pipeline and establish WNY as a tech sector.
“You may notice that we refrain from using terms such as teacher/student. We recognize that many of the participants know more about specific technology than we do and so we strive to get out of their way by allowing as much autonomy as possible while maintaining a comfortable, diverse, and cooperative environment. The result is an enthusiastic and respectful group that is surprisingly productiveâ€¦ without losing their ability to play and think outside the box. We are honored to have the privilege of working with the next generation of tech giants.” ~ Mike Marvin and Christina Lopez
