4C’s to Provide STEM Summer Programs for Grades 6 through 8

KA_Cape Cod Community College_CCCC_Winter_Sunny_012116_002WEST BARNSTABLE – Cape Cod Community College (4Cs) will provide STEM-based, week-long summer programs for students entering grades 6, 7 and 8 starting next week.

Each program will focus on a different aspect of technology, from technical coding to more artistic applications. The courses will also contain team-building exercises.

Director for the Center for Corporate and Professional Education at 4Cs Tammi Jacobsen said the courses give students a taste of both high school and college level curriculums.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for them to critically think about how to solve problems,” she said.

A Minecraft and Coding Week, from July 18 to 22, will allow students to create themes within the computer game Minecraft and learn to think critically about their accomplishments.

Next, a Flight Science Week from July 25 through 29 will see students build and fly a 10-foot tall air balloon, optimize model planes and enter flight simulators. This program will be located at the college’s West Barnstable Campus, 2240 Iyannough Road.

An Art/Tech Week from August 1 through 5 will focus on developing skills in Adobe design applications like Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.

Lastly, a class from August 8 through 12 will focus on the “Maker Movement,” and allow students to construct and take home an Arduino-based robot. This program will also take place at the West Barnstable Campus.

All programs cost $275 and can be registered at www.capecod.edu/summerofscience.
