IT Camp for Youth AMС.Code
Summer Engineer Program AMC.Code
In August of 2018 the American Center organized and held a summer engineering camp for students from the ages of 14-19. During the program, participants worked in three areas: the creation of mobile apps, internet activities, and robotics. Students in groups developed prototype solutions to social problems with the help S.T.E.A.M.- Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.
During the program, participants entered a course for developing a technological project and project management. The program resulted in presentations of their developments to experts. The engineering camp was combined with the project “Big Engineering Week,” a week of lectures from specialists of major technological companies, which were held at the American Center in Moscow. In the course of the week, participants of the summer camp, and all who were interested in engineering and the creation of their own start-up, visited lectures about STEM technologies at which listeners could go through all stages of the advancement of their projects on the market:
Andrey spent last year traveling around Russia. By profession he is an engineer-mechanic and his work experience focus on researching heart valve devices. One of his basic beliefs is that a person should never stop learning or teaching.
Participates highly valued the program. One of the finalists wrote “I found out a lot of useful information from the guest speakers and got acquainted with them. And the excursions to the companies turned out to be very productive.” AMC.Code is focused on the development of project design skills and considers that their result was the study of these skills. “We made a working prototype,” wrote one developer. Ararat, a finalist in the program, writes: “We learned teamwork, programming, communication skills and application development.”
