(b) Introduction.

(3) Fundamentals of Computer Science is intended as a first course for those students just beginning the study of computer science. Students will learn about the computing tools that are used every day. Students will foster their creativity and innovation through opportunities to design, implement, and present solutions to real-world problems. Students will collaborate and use computer science concepts to access, analyze, and evaluate information needed to solve problems. Students will learn the problem-solving and reasoning skills that are the foundation of computer science. By using computer science knowledge and skills that support the work of individuals and groups in solving problems, students will select the technology appropriate for the task, synthesize knowledge, create solutions, and evaluate the results. Students will learn digital citizenship by researching current laws and regulations and by practicing integrity and respect. Students will gain an understanding of the principles of computer science through the study of technology operations and concepts. The six strands include creativity and innovation; communication and collaboration; research and information fluency; critical thinking; problem solving, and decision making; digital citizenship; and technology operations and concepts.

Frequently Asked Questions

what will be covered in the live session?

To survive in a world where innovation rules, students today not only need to be tech-savvy but also understand fundamentals of science and engineering. In this virtual engineering camp experience, we will show students the engineering design process from idea to prototype to mass-production to better prepare today’s minds for the STEM jobs of tomorrow.

Students will also become familiar with the basics of drone systems, robotics, and programming. Mentors will cover computer science concepts before students learn to remotely control drones. Drones will be controlled over the internet in a time-based competition amongst their peers.

How will students control the drones?

Students will be given a link through which they will be able to see a live video feed of the drone. They will navigate through obstacles using buttons on the same page in a time-based competition.

How will i know if my students have a strong enough internet connection?

Instruct your students to visit www.fast.com and check their internet speed. The minimum speed is 600 Kbps and the recommended speed is 1 Mbps and above. Please check with students prior to camp. Hotspots are sufficient. Ensure students test their speed at the designated location and wifi network where they plan to use during the live camp session.

 

what kind of technology will students need?

Students will need an internet-enabled device to experience the live camp session via Zoom.

What if I can't meet the 50-student minimum?

We will coordinate with nearby schools to fill the slots. Please contact klmckinney@esc1.net

 

When will i receive my student's shirts

Shirts will be distributed Spring of '21 and sent via mail to campuses.

 

What if my campus can't attend a virtual camp during school hours?

We have an after school option from 4-6pm and a Saturday option as well with 4 time slots between 9am-6pm. The button below will take you to a live calendar.

Is this camp experience teks-aligned?

TEKS-driven Asynchronous instruction will occur before the live session by use of a digital handout covering camp-related science concepts and careers before the synchronous virtual camp session.

  • 112.34 Biology: b.3; c.3.A.D
  • 112.35 Chemistry: b.3; c.3.A.C.D.E; c.6.B; c.11.A
  • 112.39 Physics: b.3; c.2.E; c.3.D; c.6.B; c.7.D.E
  • 130.420 Fundamentals of Computer Science: b.3; c.1.A; c.4.C; c.5.E

The camp is for 50 to 100 students, but the sign-in sheet only has 30 slots?

Please print and fill in the student names on multiple sheets then email them to camps@reybotics.com

Click this link to download the sheet: Sign-in sheet

We will use these sheets during the 10 minute wait time before camp starts to accept students that match the list.
