Summer application 


Computational Thinking in Daily Life 


For summer 2024, our theme is Computational Thinking in Daily Life. We will continue our focus on robotics. Scholars will engage in an age-appropriate Vex robotics curriculum. Scholars will develop and demonstrate knowledge by building and programming robots to complete specific tasks related to relevant themes. Scholars will have opportunities to draw connections between various STEM domains (inclusive of STEM teaching), explore the engineering design process and various careers and learn how robotics can help address issues within their lives.  


Scholars will focus on journaling to build analytical and reflective literacy skills. Scholar’s journaling will culminate with the design and production of an issue of BoldlyU magazine to share with parents/caregivers and the community. We will continue our focus on health and financial wellness. Scholars will have an opportunity to explore a variety of medical fields and careers that help support our physical and mental well-being and explore how computational thinking is utilized in these fields. Scholars will participate in a financial simulation and weekly mindfulness and creativity sessions such as painting and other physical fitness sessions such as dance.
