I understand that registration for this seminar is contingent upon receipt of a refundable $25 deposit. I understand that the deposit check is payable to "The Synopsys Outreach Foundation" and will be returned to me (uncashed) following my full day's attendance at the seminar. I understand that should I decide not to attend and fail to cancel my registration within 72 hours of the start of the seminar, my check will be cashed and the amount forfeited.. I understand that any materials provided during the seminar are contributions made to my school from the non-profit Synopsys Outreach Foundation and not contributions to me, personally. I understand that the Seminar is intended to develop and enhance my skills in science and in project-based learning. It is my intention to apply those skills and that knowledge to the teaching of project-based learning, and to the development of science projects. It is my intention to consider participation in the programs offered by the Synopsys Silicon Valley Science and Technology Foundation during the academic year 2019-'29

    20 participant spots available. How are images created? How are they perceived? How do we capture images and keep it forever? These are age old questions and this workshop will help you find the answers. We will build models to help us understand: • What is light? • How does light behave? • How does light create images? • How can we capture these images? Workshop participants may, but not limited, to making the following: • Camera model • Telescope model • Projector model • Pinhole Viewer • Periscope • Kaleidoscope • Cyanotypes Note to Participants: • This workshop can be “messy” so please dress appropriately. • Bring a shopping bag or box to carry your workshop materials home/school. This workshop is appropriate for teachers in grades 4th through 8th.
    20 participant spots available. Our world is an interesting place, but it is so much more fascinating when seen up close. Through a magnifier, details that are never seen by the naked eye are revealed. Workshop participants will construct their own stand that can convert any smartphone into a powerful digital microscope with a magnification up to and above 300X. Captured images can be shared with students and other colleagues. This microscope should be compatible with any smartphone. Construction plans are simple and cost as little as $10 to replicate.
    24 participant spots available. Come build a robot car and program it in Python to drive. Educators will learn how to use the Raspberry Pi, a small computer, and its built-in tools for coding. Teachers will apply coding fundamentals by building prototype circuits on a breadboard and use the Raspberry Pi to program them. PLEASE NOTE: No technical background is required for participants, and we recommend this workshop for educators teaching 6-12th grade. We will provide hardware kits for each participant during the workshop. Teachers get to take home the hardware kit (includes Raspberry Pi 3, circuit prototyping materials, and robotic car parts), NGSS-aligned lesson plan, and ongoing virtual support. A loaner classroom kit of cars will be available to teachers completing the workshop. Personal laptops are required
    24 participant spots available. Come build a robot car with Python, and use sensors to allow it to be self-driving! Educators will learn how to use the Raspberry Pi, a small computer, and its built-in tools for coding. Teachers will apply coding fundamentals by building prototype circuits on a breadboard and use the Raspberry Pi to program them, and then go on to build a functional robot car that incorporates sensors. In addition to this, they will learn advanced concepts about the Raspberry Pi’s Operating System, and how to use arrow keys to navigate their robot car. PLEASE NOTE: Some background knowledge in computer science is required for participants, and we recommend this workshop for educators teaching 6-12th grade. We will provide hardware kits for each participant during the workshop. Personal laptops are required.
  • Check(s) will not be cashed if you complete the class or do not cancel within 72 hours of the class starting time.
