Technical start to Fremont December

December 4, 2013 by  

Fremont students will have a chance to take their computer design skills to the next level with a Steamdogo workshop on this weekend.

This class is designed for students in kindergarten through 12th grade and will incorporate the subjects of science, technology, engineering, art/design, and math into one fun event Sunday, December 8.

There will be two different workshops that students may take: The glowing LED cube holiday ornament workshop from 10:00 am to noon or the iPad stop motion movie workshop from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

In the former workshop, students will be able to craft a holiday tree ornament from glowing LED cubes. It will teach them how the cubes work, how to create them, and how to combine them into something useful and fun.

The second workshop will instruct children on the science behind stop motion animation and why the eye sees it as a movie. They will also learn how to create movie scripts.

The sessions will take place at the SunBridge USA office located at 179 Jefferson Drive in Menlo Park.

On Monday, December 9 at 9:00 am, parents and older students can continue their education with a workshop on graph data modeling using Neo4j at ExecuTrain West, 2025 Gateway Place, San Jose.

Guests can learn how to use the graph to solve modeling problems by applying it to different scenarios. Participants should bring their own laptops and digital business cards to pass around. The workshop will be led by Kenny Bastani of Neo Technology.
