Sliding Scale Pricing & Financial Aid

At Mass Audubon, we are committed to ensuring that every family that wants their child to experience the friendships, community, confidence, and connection to nature that takes place at summer camp should have the opportunity to do so. To that end, we have long made scholarship funds available to support families facing financial barriers to sending their children to camp.

We are expanding this effort by providing a sliding scale pricing structure, which will remove more financial barriers and expand access to camp for families in an easy and dependable process.

Circuit Lab: App Inventors and Hands-on Electronics

App Inventors & Hands-on Electronics

App Inventors
Want to know how the apps work on your phone or iPad? Or do you already have the next great app idea, and just need to know how to make it? In this no-experience required course, we use MIT App Inventor software to make fun, creative apps for Android phones and tablets. We will also explore wireless communication by building custom bluetooth hardware controllers and readouts for our apps. Participants will learn both the programming and design aspects of creating great apps, and have the opportunity to build apps of their own with the support of Circuit Lab instructors.

Hands on Electronics
Tinker with electronics while learning the basics of computer programming. We begin by experimenting with the fundamentals of electronics and circuitry, and step up to projects where our class of young makers will design their own
interactive and programmable devices. Participants use the latest tools including Arduino (for building interactive devices) and Raspberry Pi (for learning about computers and coding) to experiment with LEDs, resistors, motors, and programming. Each class day gives participants the chance to design a hands on project with the guidance of skilled Circuit Lab instructors.
