CS-STEM Network's 2017 Summer of Learning

Bring CS-STEM Learning to your community this summer!

Earn a Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy certification this summer! Beginning June 19th, a camp instructor will guide you through learning concepts like Robot Math, Introductory Programming, Movement, Using Sensors, Loops, and Programming a Remote Control! Both teachers and students can benefit from going through this course.

Due to restrictions, Summer of Learning courses are only available to US and Canada users only.

New Features for 2017 Summer of Learning

Experience the new look of the CS-STEM Network! We’ve added several new badges and a much simpler way of earning certifications.

About Certifications

A certification from the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy represents a level of rigor that shows a high level of proficiency in the subject matter. Select a track, start earning badges and gain experience that is needed to be certified The mapped badge pathway and the GROUPS features allows the teachers to view progress for every student in the classroom.

About Badges

Smaller, more focused topics ultimately build up to a certification as a collection. Badges can be earned individually and applied toward a certification! All work accomplished during the Summer of Learning can be shared with your friends and family.

Requirements for Badges and Certifications

Badges and Certifications require completing activities, playing educational games, uploading examples as computational artifacts, and taking quizzes. Completing all of the requirements earns you that badge.
