DevTech Summer Programs 2019
Join the DevTech Research Group for two exciting weeks of programming, robotics and technology! This year’s two, one-week camp sessions will utilize developmentally appropriate technologies to teach coding as literacy. Camp is open to any student entering Kindergarten through 3rd grade and runs each day from 9am – 12:30pm. Camp Week 1 is July 22nd – 26th and will focus on ScratchJr. Camp Week 2 is July 29th – August 2nd and will focus on KIBO. You are welcome to register for one or both weeks! The cost per week is $275.

Family Coding Days with KIBO and ScratchJr
Family Coding Day is a community event where parents, grandparents, siblings, extended family members, and children can work together to create projects using the free ScratchJr programming app and/or the KIBO Robotics kit!
Who are Family Coding Days intended for?
This event is for anyone who wants to create a ScratchJr and/or KIBO Robotics community! It can be done through schools, museum, after-school programs, community centers, or anywhere else where families can come together. Children between the ages of 5-7 as well as their family members (including siblings or family members who are older or younger) are encouraged to participate!

Play-Testing with CRISPEE
CRISPEE is a tangible tool for young children ages 5-7 years to explore developmentally appropriate concepts from bioengineering and gene-editing. After a year of pilot testing, we are ready to share this work at local areas around the Greater Boston area! See below a list of places where you can play with CRISPEE and meet the researchers working on this project:
- TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet 2018 – Saturday November 10, demonstrations and TEDx talk from 10:30am-3:30pm
- Boston Children’s Museum – Monday November 12 (Veteran’s Day Holiday), demonstrations from 11am-1pm in the STEAM Studio space on the second floor of the museum
- Museum of Science, Boston – Saturday December 8 (CS Weekend), demonstrations throughout the day
- Boston Children’s Museum – Saturday December 8 (CS Weekend), demonstrations throughout the day
- Museum of Science, Boston – Sunday December 9 (CS Weekend), demonstrations throughout the day
- Boston Children’s Museum – Sunday December 9 (CS Weekend), demonstrations throughout the day
This project is part of a collaboration with the Wellesley College Human-Computer Interaction Lab, and sponsored by the National Science Foundation (Grant No. IIS-1149530). Visit our Bioengineering page to learn more about this project.
