Technology Summer Camp

Interested?

Looking for a summer camp that is both educational and fun? Members from the DevTech Research Group will be running several exciting half-day camps during the summer of 2018! Our camps are open to children entering K-3rd grade.

More about KIBO: The KIBO robot is a developmentally appropriate robotics kit created by the DevTech Research Group at Tufts University. KIBO was designed specifically for children ages 4-7 and is a no-screen programming platform that allows children to program, play, decorate, and create! KIBO is an award-winning robotics set backed by decades of research and is widely and internationally recognized. KIBO can help your child get an early start on mastering robotics and will give them the skills needed for computer programming. In fact, last summer this KIBO camp was featured in the New York Times!

More about ScratchJr: ScratchJr is a free graphical programming app designed to teach foundational programming skills to young children ages 5-7. ScratchJr was designed by the DevTech Research Group at Tufts University and MIT’s Lifelong Kindergarten Group. Currently, ScratchJr has over 9.5 million downloads and is one of the most prominent children’s coding apps. In ScratchJr children can program their own stories and games by generating code for their characters. Children become the engineers of their own stories and are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively!

More about Bioengineering: In the Bioengineering camp children will spend a week exploring DNA, biology, and genetics using a new tangible coding prototype! Children will explore natural phenomena like glowing "bioluminescent" animals, and will learn about how DNA codes for these amazing features. Then they will use our novel CRISPEE technology, a tangible kit for young children designed in collaboration between the Devtech Research Group at Tufts University and Wellesley HCI Lab, to creatively engineer their own solutions to real-world problems. CRISPEE is designed for children ages 5-7 to learn about genetic engineering while also enhancing their sequencing and coding abilities. In this special camp session, children will play with a fun, novel science tool, learn about cutting-edge biology research, and participate in DevTech's ongoing research to develop new technologies for early childhood!
