Digital Program: Young Engineers' Club
Tuesday, May 26th at 4 PM
The Young Engineers' Club (YEC) is an exciting program hosted by the Mystic & Noank Library that provides an opportunity for tweens/teens, ages 10 and up to become technology creators!
Eager students cover new topics monthly and have studied the basics of computer networks, how the Internet works, and how to serve your own webpage using HTML/CSS and serve it to other students in the class using a NodeJS web server. They have also learned what electricity is, Ohm's law, basic electronic components, schematic design, circuit board design, soldering, 3D modeling/printing, and the basics of C programming.
This class will go over the basics of artificial intelligence. Students will learn how to make a basic AI that can tell if a sentence is a joke or a compliment. Topics covered will include encoding, neural networks, training and validation.
This exciting initiative for youth aged 10+ is FREE! Class size is limited.
