The Cubit motto is “every child can learn to design and create,” and during just one week of camp, participants will learn to do just that!
Students will begin by building a robotic car - the Cubit Racer. Then, they will develop programs using Cubit Workshop, a block-to-text programming platform. As the week progresses, students will customize their robots and programs adding sounds, headlights autonomous driving, and more. Each day will present its own unique challenges and design opportunities while engaging students in programming and robotics, while encouraging them to think outside the box and persevere. The early design opportunities will prepare students for a culminating project and presentation at the end of the week where students will share out their design decisions, trials, and triumphs of the week.
This program is designed for "aspiring coders" aged 10-14.
Jason and his brother grew up with a father that engaged them with hands-on projects made from scraps. Jason grew up to teach himself electronics and robotics and started his own design firm at 18 where he prototyped custom electronics for various companies such as GE and Hallmark. In 2014, he started Cubit, a STEAM Education company for K12 Education. He hopes to bridge what he's learned in the industry and bring it into the way we educate our kids about the future of technology.
