The next big thing is here.
GSSM is super-charging its iTEAMS day camp to the EXTREME! With cooler challenges and newer technology, iTEAMS Xtreme will inspire rising 7th and 8th graders across the Palmetto State to become computer scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs.
- Challenges include creating mobile apps using App Inventor, interactive objects using Makey Makey and Scratch, and 3D printing!
- GSSM hires local teachers and GSSM alumni participate as assistants and role models
- Students are selected based on grades and interest
Creating an Xtreme Mobile App: Working in teams, students will use MIT’s App Inventor to program an app for Android mobile phones that has a real-world application. The teams will pitch their app to investors.
Creating an Xtreme Interactive Object: Working in teams, students will use MIT’s Scratch 2-D animation software to program musical files and games. They will use a MaKey MaKey Invention Kit developed at MIT to transform everyday objects into computer keyboard commands to play their games. The teams will pitch their game to investors.
Creating an Xtreme 3D Model: Working in teams, students will use OpenSCAD software to program the prototype of a 3D object that will be printed using a 3D printer. They will be challenged to develop a model that will hold an everyday object like a USB flash drive, cell phone, or a pencil. The teams will pitch their prototype to investors.
