IMACS Summer Camp
In conjuction with the Computer Programming activity, campers apply their skills in the IMACS Virtual Robotics Lab, a virtual world that contains the physical realities of friction, acceleration, and conservation of momentum. Actual robots (and their genuine real-life behavior) are accurately simulated in this world – and are programmed by IMACS campers.
Campers are introduced to the fascinating world of electronics. Campers learn about electrical components such as resistors, diodes, LEDs, capacitors, transistors and integrated circuits and use them to design and construct fun projects. Courses are tailored according to age and ability so that each camper is able to advance as far as his or her interests and abilities allow. Campers may keep the electronic devices that they build.
Mysteries of pure logic are presented in fun, compelling stories. Painstakingly designed, this class leads campers from elementary deductive reasoning to skills that exceed those of most college graduates! Team logic games, exciting tournaments, and, as in every IMACS class, new challenges each week!
Campers don't merely use the computer in this course. They write computer programs! Using the programming language LOGO, developed at MIT, campers are challenged by projects designed by the IMACS Curriculum Development Group. It's fun, but it's no game! With individualized guidance, campers develop basic programming and problem-solving skills.
Full Day Campers get all four activities. (Click an activity above for more information.) Individual classes are also available.
Single week and multiple week sessions are available.
