Cape Cod Tech Council announces junior tech program workshops

New kids workshops for February vacation

The Cape Cod Technology Council (CCTC) announces a new series of Junior Tech Program workshops for students in grades 5-12. All of these workshops will be held at the Upper Cape Technical School in Bourne.

The Junior Tech Program reaches out to students from grades 5-12 with the goal of exposing, encouraging, building and generating aspiration for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics and developing a life long interest.

Grades 9 - 12, 2-day workshop - 16 student maximum

Think about all the electronic devices you use every day - cell phones, video game consoles, MP3 players. If you are like most people, you know how to use these devices, but you don't know how they work. Now you can learn how they work! The hands- on projects designed in these two sessions will get you started. You will build your own electronic devices and even learn to write simple computer programs in C language.
