Have you ever wanted to build your own robot and program it to do what you want? Come to the Hiram Robotics Academy and learn to program two different types of robots, both in the Java programming language. The Finch robot is already constructed and has several sensors for measuring the world. Learn to control this robot to accomplish different challenges starting on day 1. You will also design and build your own Lego Mindstorms NXT robot. Attach sensors and motors that you need for the project you choose, then program it in the same Java programming language.

They will be learning core robotics concepts by building and programming their own Lego robot, using the CMU Curriculum. I have run a similar program to thi sone at the San Jose African American Community Center, and it was a huge success!
To kick off the OGPC season, TechStart will host a state-wide Game Jam! A Game Jam is a one-day event that will provide high-school and middle-school students an opportunity to create a design document and paper prototype of a game based on the team’s chosen theme. Working with industry mentors, students will learn the basics of team communication, translation of abstract ideas into concrete plans, rapid paper-prototyping of their designs, pitching their projects, and professional networking.
