This track will be delivered through Zoom and Canvas, TSC’s learning management system, and will involvehands-on at home activities using kits that will be provided to participants (Cybersecurity) or a virtual environment (iOS App Development).
The Cybersecurity Camp is designed to promote interest in Computer Science/Cyber Security. The Cybersecurity Camp is hands-on, collaborative, and requires no previous programming experience. Content will span through different activities allowing students to discuss real-world topics and engage in simulated cyber threats. Students participating in the activities will learn of the risks, dangers, and threats of using the Internet and also be introduced to the subject of cyber security and how this field of Computer Science helps keep us safe. Students will discuss topics in information and account protection, password-cracking, cryptology, and network attacks. Students will also learn of the various careers in cybersecurity.
In this summer camp “Introduction to iOS App Development,” students are introduced to the fundamentals of Apple iOS mobile app development. Participants receive an overview of the Mac computer environment and some of its applications that introduce topics such as graphic design, virtual reality, augmented reality, computational thinking, software development, virtual machines, and artificial intelligence. Students create presentations and logos, edit images, and use filters. By the end of the camp, students play with a robot application that introduces the concept of artificial intelligence and then the students develop a prototype of a mobile app of his or her own choosing which is tested using iPhone and iPad simulators to introduce the concept of virtual machines and coding using the swift programming language and the xCode development environment. This camp is set up to spark interest in various careers in the field of computer science.
