Tech Camp 2018 is a unique opportunity for current high school sophomores and juniors to participate in a four day long, hands on technology class at southern New England’s largest technical university. The program offers a wonderful opportunity to explore some of today’s top technical careers.
Tech Camp 2018 will run from Monday, July 9 – Thursday, July 12th. Aside from the $100.00 non-refundable registration fee, this event is free. Students will be in class from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. daily. Lunch will be provided. Students may choose to attend one of the following camps.
Architectural Building Engineering Technology
Students will explore the creative process of architecture by applying design theory to a student’s own building design. Activities will be conducted in the NEIT Architectural Design Studio and will include the study of architectural design theory, architectural history, building programming, and building design. Students will also be introduced to CAD programs including Revit and Sketch. Students will use the programs to transform their designs into 3D presentation renderings.
Students will explore both basic vehicle maintenance as well as advanced technology such as scan tools, performing in-depth diagnostic testing and recommended repair procedures. Students may explore aspects of automotive collision including air brushing and Chassis dynamometer highlighting the horsepower cars develop at the rear axle.
Students will learn about how the Criminal Justice system operates in contemporary society and will participate in exciting hands-on training in areas of crime scene investigation, police operations, criminal forensics, firearms and corrections. Expected activities include fingerprinting, evidence gathering and processing, footwear and shoe impression castings, and mock cell extraction. In addition, there will be demonstrations from area professionals including the RI State Police K-9 Unit and RI State Department of Corrections.
Digital Media Production – Audio Recording
Students will work with NEIT audio equipment while exploring the skills and background necessary to create a music production in the recording studio.
Digital Media Production – Production
Students will work with NEIT video equipment while exploring the skills and background necessary to develop a video.
Electrical Technology – Automation
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are computers designed to gather information from sensors and use it to control devices. PLCs are the heart of many manufacturing applications. PLCs can communicate to devices over a variety of networks, even hundreds of miles apart. Students will explore the world of PLCs. During Tech Camp students, will operate machinery based on the PLC work they have done.
Electronic Systems Engineering – Robotics
Learn how to design, build and program a robot. Students will explore the career choice of Electronics and how it relates to robotics.
Electronic Systems Engineering Technology – Drones
Students will explore the career choice of Electronics and how it relates to drones. Learn how to design, build and program a small drone.
Information Technology – Cyber Security
Through a series of hands-on experiences, students will learn more about the exciting field of cyber security. Students will be exposed to security issues on machines running both Linux and Microsoft.
Information Technology – Video Game Design/Development
Students will explore the fundamentals of drawing, animating, and programming in Adobe Animate and Unity 5. Students will work on designing their own simple maze game.
Mechanical Engineering Technology – 3D Printing
Students will investigate this field with hands-on design activities that will challenge their critical thinking abilities and team-building strengths. They will follow the design process, from visualization of their ideas in SolidWorks to a finished product printed in plastic. After testing their design, they will identify possible improvements they can make.
