Python Programming II - Code Bot

$240

with Cody Hutcheson

In our third Python programming course for middle school and high school, students will continue learn to write in one of the world's premier programming languages, using an innovative hardware microcomputer and challenging, relevant projects. This 18 week course will establish a robust foundation in computer programming, and teach good coding habits from the start.

We utilize the Firia Labs learning platform, CodeSpace & CodeBot, which features intuitive error messaging, and a professional debugger, so students are empowered to diagnose and correct their own errors before asking for help, while step-by-step coding lessons, and open-ended projects allow students to work at their own pace.

CyberPatriot High School Team

$250

with Jake Williams

Calendar Current session started Aug 21, 2020 at 1 pm, runs for 16 weeks

CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program. At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six hour period. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.​

The Huntsville STEAM Works High School Team is intended for homeschooled students in grades 9-12, and is capped at 6 students, per competition rules. The team meets concurrently with the middle school school team to learn content but compete in separate divisions. Practice typically runs 1 hour but may run longer as needed. Team practice continues through early April for additional study of CyberSecurity content or for additional practice time if the team advances.

Important Note: Scored rounds take place on competition weekends. The team will coordinate a 6 hour period to compete on weekends. The precise 6-hour blocks will be coordinated by team and coach consensus, but participation during these weekends is essential to participation.

Telescope Building Mentorship with Project Nightsky

$1,69750

with Haley Rice

Calendar Current session started Sep 7, 2020 , runs for 9 weeks

This mentorship for high school and adults is a telescope-building course adapted to mobile astronomy education needs. Our goal in partnering with Project Night Sky is to provide one-on-one mentorship to students, allowing them to build their very first telescope, and by extent, learning to understand the mathematical, historical, and cultural side to optics. We will meet in-person to build telescopes, sextants, and study celestial navigation and distance-calculations. The level of math we use is dependent on the ability of each student.

This mentorship lasts for 9 weeks and includes an individual meeting 2 hours a week on Monday or Wednesday afternoons. Arrangements can be made to meet through zoom or off-site (for an additional fee). Contact us at haleyr@hsvsteamworks or 256-489-0610 for more information or to check on available class times.

The cost is $795 per student for groups of 6 or more.
