Technology Entrepreneurship Youth Camp 2017

Continuing the legacy of students’ summer camp, AMAN CED – the think tank for creativity and innovation is back with yet another success story to its credit. For the last four years, AMAN CED has successfully conducted kid's entrepreneurship camp. Last year, we reached new heights where technology was also being focused with courses in Robotics and Game Development. Keeping in mind the overwhelming response that we received last year, this year too, we have initiated a summer camp. The camp is divided in two categories, i.e., Youth Camp for Juniors: Young Explorer Program (YEP) and Youth Camp for Seniors: Build and Program your Own Robot (BPOR). Covering the essential concepts of STEM education in an interactive, hands-on and fun model, this is just the avenue for students seeking a real world practical learning in addition to the textbook learning at school. (STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). The age group for the camp was between 10-18 years which makes up the large majority of the existing student pool. A small group of kids below the age of 10 years is also being catered this time around as a legacy.

Youth Camp for Seniors: Build and program your own Robot
General Overview


Learn the steps needed to create your own robot. Become familiar with programming software interface to program and customize your robot applications and structures.

Topics:
• Introduction to robotics
• Basic building instructions
• Programming & Looping
• Sensors
• Motors
• Building complex robot designs
• Titbits about the sensors and their working
• Train your robots to perform challenging tasks
• Implement mathematical concepts into robots

Outcomes
• Titbits about the sensors (temperature sensor, light sensor, etc.) and their working
• Making basic structures of robot
• Training your robot to perform challenging tasks
• Learning how programming can produce a physical outcomes in you robot
• Understanding how the actuators (motors) should be directed to complete a specified task

Activities
This course will give you everything you need to provide a practical and fun foundation for students to fall in love with programming and building! What if instead of just playing with the toy cars, they could actually make their own toy car and robot with their imagination? They'll learn how to make simple robot structures and programming using C language and Arduino IDE platform. More importantly, understand how simple it is to make their creative ideas a reality in today's world. Create own toys and bring them to life.

Youth Camp for Juniors: Young Explorer Program (YEP)
General Overview:
If you want to spend five weeks of your summer break in academics, engineering, creativity, gaming and more, YEP should be your choice. YEP is an amazing and fun-filled adventure where a student learns, explores and innovate to his fullest capacity.

Topics:
• Creative Writing
• Electronics
• Art activities
• Fun filled activities
• Arduino Programming
• Scratch Programming
• Game Development

Outcomes:
• Drag & drop programming
• Using intuitive building blocks to visually craft simple games and animations
• Making their creative ideas a reality
• Learning basics of electronics and engineering
• Understanding, analyzing and effectively using the conventions of English Language
• Effectively presenting literary works, students’ own as well as the works of others
• Identifying, interpreting and describing the critical ideas, values, and themes that appear in literary texts

Activities
Step into the world of creativity. Students will tinker with their imagination, tools and kits to design basic games and engineering circuits and program them using simple "drag & drop" programming. The basic sentence structure and writing skills will be taught. They will explore themselves to their fullest in the most relaxing and enjoyable environment. Students will learn to transfer their thoughts and ideas onto the paper in the most effective and persuasive way.
