About The Event

Our popular Youth Technology Camps are a 2-day event where students aged 8-14 learn about emerging technologies, investigate and research special STEM topics, participate in engineering design challenges, and more. Students have to use their critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork skills to participate in various fun

and interactive activities.

This is the perfect opportunity for your child to prepare for future opportunities and become an early adopter of emerging technology and Maker culture!

Day 1 - Data Science and Engineering (Hacking STEM Orca Research)

Day of Data: Orcas

Earth’s oceans are vast and remain primarily unexplored. The marine ecosystems that make up our oceans contain excellent populations of creatures. The existence of these populations depends on complex interactions within food webs and the health of the environments they inhabit. Humans can play a major role in preserving marine ecosystems, but we must understand the impact of our actions.

The J pod population is a close-knit family of 24 endangered Southern Resident orca whales living in the Salish Sea, and Kiki is a six-year-old female who carries the fate of the pod on her shoulders. You can connect with Kiki and her family to explore data related to them that may lead to insights that protect her family, her ecosystem, and ultimately us!

Lesson highlights:

  • Access information in Excel using data types and data cards.
  • Compare and contrast taxonomic data to explore differences and similarities of organisms.
  • Use data cards to access geographic data related to orca sighting locations.
  • Document student learning in Flip and through a reflection journal

Day 2 - Game Theory and Game Design

  • Introduction to Game Theory (eSports)
  • Game theory studies mathematical models of strategic interaction among rational decision-makers. It has applications in all fields of social science, as well as in logic, systems science and computer science. In esports, game theory can analyse player behaviour, develop strategies and tactics, and predict outcomes. Game theory can help players understand the incentives and motivations of their opponents and can help them make better decisions based on that understanding. We will explore the basics of game theory and how it can be applied to esports. We will cover topics such as the prisoner’s dilemma, Nash equilibrium, zero-sum games, mixed strategies, and sequential games. We will also discuss how probability and statistics can be used to analyze game data and improve performance.
  • AI Lab Project:  AI Lab is a hands-on introduction to developing machine learning models with tabular data. You will learn how computers learn from data to make decisions and formulate machine-learning applications based on real-world data. At the end of this unit, you will design a machine-learning application to address a personal issue.
