This camp is designed for beginners.


Target: Middle and High school, but ANYONE is welcome to attend!  The parents had fun working with their kids at our BUC E-day lab!


Students who participate in this camp will gain real world problem solving skills.  At the beginning of the camp we will define a problem that we will solve by the end of the camp.  Students will define the problem, design a solution for the problem, implement their solution, and present their solution.  We will be using NoBox’s version of TJ Bot which runs on a Raspberry Pi along with some Python and NodeJs.  Students will be able to implement text-to-speech, speech-to-text, conversation analysis and structure, tone analysis, and more!
