Continuing Education Programs

Adventures in Information Technology

Dive into the world of computing and engineering by using Arduino microcontrollers with Tableau - the leading analytics platform and data visualization tool! This STEM+C (Computing) camp will feed your interest using the creative thinking process to link coding, hardware, and data analysis. Along with learning how to control lights, motors, speakers, and sensors – students end the adventure by making their own project that uses collected sensory data to analyze a problem. Join the Integrated Information Technology (IIT) Department within the College of Engineering and Computing to help design your own innovative databot.

Special thanks to the Department of IT (DoIT) for sponsoring the Tableau licenses for this program.
