Intro to Java Workshop @ CV (10/01-11/05/19) 5:00-6:30 pm 6 weeks Tuesdays $360Purchase required to enroll

Dive right in to coding with Java, one of the world’s most scalable and popular programming languages. This is a practical and fun workshop with no lecture-style teaching. You will be coding progressively trickier problems for the entire duration of the class. You will learn by doing!

You will practice the basics of programming – variables, control statements, loops and boolean logic – that will provide you with a solid foundation for tackling new technologies and programming languages.

You don’t need to be a techie or a geek to enjoy this workshop...programming is easy and fun!

For students ages 5th to 12th grade (no exceptions, for summer we accept incoming 5th graders).

Electrical Engineering Workshop $360Purchase required to enroll

Schedule: Workshop students attend daily for 5 days, Monday through Friday. Students must then attend one additional session (the following Friday) to collect their completed hardware.

Workshop Description: This exciting workshop will expose students "to the metal". During this workshop, students will acquire basic Electronic Technician skills and learn about Electrical Engineering as a career. Students will learn about electronic components, AC and DC circuits, schematic capture, volt-ohm-milliampere meters, oscilloscopes, through-hole and surface mount parts, environmental considerations, soldering and printed circuit layout and fabrication. In order to make this fun and interesting for kids, this will be a hands-on workshop with students practicing the skills learned. The challenge-based workshop includes design and construction of a simple device and encourages a growth mindset that requires building the students’ confidence in themselves as problem solvers.

Students who complete this prerequisite workshop can apply for entry to the ongoing series of League EE classes.

This workshop is ideal for students who are interested in pursuing a career in Electrical Engineering, those who want to learn more about the subject, or students who want to learn more about the inner workings of computers. Workshop students will design a circuit board that will be manufactured with their name etched on it! At the conclusion of the 6-sessions they will solder on elements and create a blinking board.


We think this program is so cool that we are offering the first session of the workshop for FREE!
When: Saturday 11/3 1:00-3:00pm

Location: Carmel Valley Suite 107

Cost of Full Workshop (sessions 2-6) : $360 (includes materials fee)

On-Going Class Information
Students will gain a high level understanding of electrical engineering and its subfields, electronic components, AC and DC electronic circuits, multimeters, Ohm’s law, common units of electricity (Volts, Ohms & Amperes), digital logic, schematic capture, printed circuit board layout, through-hole and surface mount parts, soldering and debugging. This will be a hands on class where students will get the opportunity to design and construct their own simple devices.
