Data Science & Artificial Intelligence

June 3 - 8   |   9am-5pm   |   TBD in Downtown Austin

Course is available to students ages 7-18; Students will be separated into multiple sections by age and programming experience

This course tracks along the Python vertical and integrates a range of topics at the nexus of computer science, data science, and artificial intelligence. Students gain experience with Pandas, Sci-Kit Learn, and other software libraries written for the Python programming language for data manipulation and analysis. This discipline emphasizes scientific literacy as well as programming and leaves students better able to think critically about data and studies they are presented with through various mediums. Students apply their learning by addressing various scientific concerns: what makes for a good hypothesis, how to measure data, how to ensure your results are accurate and unbiased, and how to draw meaningful conclusions.

Students apply their learning by addressing various scientific concerns: what makes for a good hypothesis, how to measure data, how to ensure your results are accurate and unbiased, and how to draw meaningful conclusions.

Coursework includes practical experience with data modeling and scientific computing as well as rigorous debates on the economic and policy implications of various types of artificial intelligence. Through a series of coding projects and challenges, students in beginner level bands (Python Level 1, Python Level 2, etc.) will complete common tasks performed by data scientists such as model prediction, feature extraction using the Pandas library, and decision tree application. Students in upper level bands will engage in increasingly complex challenges around model creation, training, evaluation, and other machine learning concepts. Each student will complete two or more passion projects, what we refer to as “20% projects”, centered on a specific areas of interest within AI such as machine learning, neural networks and deep learning, reinforcement learning, human vs. AI game playing, AI and modern society, scientific literacy, natural language processing, and many others.

Students experience personalized learning with a maximum of 6 students per instructor. Our instructors are software engineers and computer scientist who are currently leading professionals in the technology industry. Students will be grouped by age and level of experience – we are open to all levels, including beginners, and utilize a robust, proprietary blended learning platform to differentiate based on previous exposure to engineering concepts. Various program features such as collaboration challenges, the use of student portfolios, field visits, and the opportunity for students to guide their own learning based on their interests all works towards our aim of raising critical thinkers and radical creators who will ultimately become global knowledge contributors.

We strongly encourage girls to join the program - early exposure to computer science and engineering concepts improves confidence in the field and significantly increases students' likelihood of majoring in these subjects in college!

Sessions take place from 9am-5pm at TBD (8:30am drop-off and 5:30pm pick-up available). Downtown parking is not required as our operations team will facilitate a seamless drop-off and pick-up system for the program. Saturday is a shortened day including a Student Showcase event where students show off to friends and family what they’ve learned throughout the week. Laptops and all other learning materials are provided by Hello World. Please note two snacks are provided per day but students should pack a lunch or bring lunch money for supervised trips to nearby restaurants (Chipotle, etc.).

iOS Mobile App Development with Swift

July 8 - 13   |   9am-5pm   |   Gates-Dell Computer Science Complex at University of Texas at Austin

Course is available to students ages 7-18; Students will be separated into multiple sections by age and programming experience

This course tracks along the Swift programming vertical and covers the fundamentals of iOS application development, a powerful new programming language from Apple. Students will gain familiarity with standard iOS development tools such as Xcode, Interface Builder, and the iOS Simulator. The course is comprised of a series of increasingly complex, hands-on challenges requiring students to build a range of fully-functioning apps from scratch, including those that utilize augmented reality features, require camera integration, user interactions, voice manipulation, and data management.

Students in this course will become proficient with Swift syntax, object oriented principles, memory storage, and programming functions. Learn More →

Students in this course will become proficient with Swift syntax, object oriented principles, memory storage, and programming functions. Students in beginner level bands (Swift Level 1, Swift Level 2, etc.) will focus on building storyboards, gaining comfort with the programming environments, and designing interfaces that focus on purpose and usability (e.g. how the app responds to swipes/clicks). Students in upper level bands will focus on building navigation-based apps, integrating dynamic content from external web services such as maps, Facebook, etc., and programming in Objective-C. Each student will complete two or more passion projects, what we refer to as “20% projects”, centered on specific areas of interest within iOS mobile app development such as storyboarding, augmented reality, game development, social networking, artificial intelligence, mobile banking, and many others.

Game Engineering

July 22 - 27   |   9am-5pm   |   Capital Factory in Downtown Austin

Course is available to students ages 7-18; Students will be separated into multiple sections by age and programming experience

This course tracks along the C#/Java vertical and introduces students to the complex and interconnected components of game development including program design, conditional algorithms, and game-specific systems and networks. Students will experience the creative power of game design on the Unity or GameMaker game engine (depending on age), which has been used by industry giants such as Electronic Arts and has many applications outside of games as seen by NASA, LEGO, and Warner Bros. In this course students will create many games using Unity and C# or GameMaker and GML; older students will create various virtual reality games in Unity.

The course will cover component-oriented design patterns of Unity and GameMaker by experimenting with components such as rigidbodies (for physics), colliders (for collision), audio sources (for audio), and particle systems (for effects such as fire, rain, and explosions). Learn More →

The course will cover component-oriented design patterns of Unity and GameMaker by experimenting with components such as rigidbodies (for physics), colliders (for collision), audio sources (for audio), and particle systems (for effects such as fire, rain, and explosions). In order to best express and control these components, students will manipulate raw abilities of both game engines and programming languages. Students in beginner level bands (Java Level 1, Java Level 2, etc.) will focus on utilizing the broad capabilities of the GameMaker platform, creating separate events, routines, and a basic game loop. Students in upper level bands (C# Level 7, C# Level 8, etc.) will program in Unity and engage in advanced scripting to create game layers and define game concepts, rules, and requirements for multiple players. Each student will complete two or more passion projects, what we refer to as “20% projects”, centered on specific areas of interest within game development such as virtual reality, augmented reality, human vs. computer game playing, live multiplayer games, 3D games, and many others.
