Nebula LEADERSHIP Academy

Registration is now open!

The Nebula Leadership Academy is a program designed for students ages 16-21 who are interested in exploring the careers and necessary skills related to computer science. Learning skills in computer science can support success in just about any field that students might pursue. This is an opportunity to build your skills and to help others at the same time. This 8 day immersive program provides students with competencies in coaching to support learning to teach other students and to build your skills in coding. Students who demonstrate a strong aptitude in coding and in their ability to teach others will have an opportunity to be placed in paid summer programs where they will be a part of teaching young students what they have learned. Learning to teach is a powerful way to build a deeper knowledge of coding, while developing strong communications and leaderships skills.

Summer teaching opportunities are not guaranteed, however students who complete the program successfully and demonstrate capacity to teach will be placed in a resource pool for selection by local Long Island summer STEM programs.

All participants must complete a Registration application as well as an in person interview in order to participate.

Program dates: April 22-26, May 11, 18, Final session June 1st.

Participants will learn to teach using block style coding as well as JavaScript and Python. Participants will utilize physical computing using micro:bit and drones to program. Additional technologies that are incorporated into the training include Microsoft Office 365 and 3D Printing.

The program will conclude with a Capstone project where each participate will create a one hour video lesson that will be assessed.
