Summer Bridge Program - Mass Bay Community College - space still available

Are you and/or do you know a recent High School graduate that might be interested in attending the following?  Please register at the link provided below.

MassBay is running a Summer Bridge from July 9-20 for rising H.S. seniors and recently graduated H.S. students. The program is FREE and includes the following workshops:
Title:  Mobile Apps with App Inventor
Students will learn to use App Inventor (a graphical block based programming environment) to create fun mobile applications! 
Title: Have a product to sell? – Build it!  Market it! And share with the WORLD!
Students will learn to express their ideas creating visual impact with Office productivity tools (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Web Expression)
Title: Artbotics This is a fun activity that combines arts and crafts with computing.  Students will design and create arts and crafts projects using cardboard, foam, balsa wood, glue, wire and other materials.  Once the project is ready we will add motors, lights and sensors to make it move and bring it to life.  How about a sun flower that spins?  Or a mailbox that opens and closes its cover?  More ideas at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N22FrgQgLM
Title: Race to the finish line: A Lego robot competition
Students will put together Lego robots and program them to perform different tasks (moving, turning, throwing a ball, and speaking) as they compete to reach the finish line! More at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/aailzk1nzp8g6s2/x-6imgV8RR/TechDayLego%20Spring%202011
Title: Storytelling and Games with Scratch
