OPEN HOUSE (1)

Now Offering Sunday Classes!

introducing...
The Digital Arts Experience will now be offering classes on Sundays starting in January 2016.

 

At The Digital Arts Experience, our goal is to offer cutting edge STEM/STEAM/computer technology classes for the kids and teens of Westchester County, New York. After running another series of successful Saturday programs this Fall, we have decided to now open our doors on Sundays!

We find that weekends are for the most part more convenient for many families to enroll in our programs and visit our facility. With Saturday as one of our busiest days, it was a no-brainer to us to open our doors on Sundays.

Starting the weekend of January 16 & 17, we will start up new 8-week sessions in 3D Printing, Animation, Computer Programming, Design, Electronics and more! We are excited to run several new programs which include:

_3dsculpt3D Character Modeling & Sculpting

With Blender, a 3D modeling and texturing program, students will learn to create detailed 3D models and sculptures. Using a digital drawing tablet, students will learn how to sculpt an object from scratch into a highly detailed character. Each week students will work on different projects to hone their skills and by the end of the class will have portfolio ready projects completed.

SAT: 01/16 – 03/12, 10AM – 12PM, Ages 9-12

SUN: 01/17 – 03/13 11:15AM – 1:15PM, Ages 9-12

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWearable Technology

Wearable technology is becoming more and more popular everyday, especially when devices such as fit bits and apple watches exist. However, what if we were to incorporate technology into fashion? In this class, students will learn to invent and create a functional wearable garment, such as a shirt that lights up when reacting to sound, light, or temperature.

SAT: 01/16 – 03/12, 12:45PM – 2:45PM, Ages 9-12

SUN: 01/17 – 03/13 11:15AM – 1:15PM, Ages 9-12

 

_jewel3D Jewelry Design

From rings to earrings and necklaces and hair clips, there is practically no limitation to what you can create in this class. Using CAD software, students will design original pieces of custom fit jewelry. Students will also learn how to safely and proposal operate our 3D printers, and use them to print their creations!

SAT: 01/16 – 03/12, 10AM – 12PM, Ages 9-12

New STEM and programming courses for kids in Westchester!

We, here at The Digital Arts Experience in White Plains, Westchester NY, are proud and excited to announce two NEW programming and web development courses for kids that we are currently adding, and a few extra courses coming this year!

Text-Adventures with Java:

We will be teaching an advanced Java Course that will build off of and develop the skills learned in our Java 101 Course. Students will spend time learning how developers in the real-world face complex problems. They will learn how to think ambiguously, write pseudocode, and develop algorithms to solve the problems they will encounter as they progress through the course. Furthermore, their Final Project will be in the form of a text-adventure, in which, the students will create their own story-line. Our objective is to teach the Java language in depth, while facilitating a fun, creative, engaging, and hands-on experience that encourages curiosity, teamwork, and critical thinking. This course will be a prerequisite to one of our future courses coming this year; Web Applications with Java: Hard-Coding a 2D game.

Programming 101 using Ruby:

This course is specifically designed to teach the core concepts of programming. We have designed the curriculum with the goal of teaching our students to think like a programmer. Students will learn to embrace abstract thought and practice common coding conventions. Being able to code with convention and conciseness in mind, is key to creating beautiful reusable code, that can be distributed worldwide. The Ruby programming language is currently sky-rocketing within the software industry, with employers seeking candidates whom are not only educated in the language, but are able to think pragmatically. This course assumes no prior programming experience, but is equally useful for those on an intermediate level.

COMING SOON:

  • Intro to JavaScript
  • Intro to jQuery
  • HTML5 Canvas: Game Development for The Web
  • Web Applications with Ruby on Rails
  • Android App Development with Android Studio
  • iOS App Development with Swift
  • Java Applets: 2D Game Creation

Why Take These Courses?

To put it simply…. because you should become digitally literate. Programming is, in essence, applied Math and Science. It teaches us to think smarter, faster, and more efficiently. It’s no secret that software and computers are changing our society. With so many of our industries relying on Software Programs to automate their daily tasks, it’s becoming more and more evident that we need to educate not only ourselves, but our youth. The tech industry is booming. Job growth is estimated to increase between 20% and 30% for Computer related fields by the year 2020. Employers are seeking computer literate individuals more than ever before. To add to that, in 2013, a study conducted by the Census Bureau found that 83.8% of households reported computer ownership, and 73.4% reported internet use. With STEM technology rapidly evolving and embedding itself in our daily lives, it is imperative that we learn how computers communicate, and what goes into creating, reading, and writing software programs. Below is a small list of a few jobs in the software industry and their respected average salaries: (Keep in mind the estimated 30% job growth in this industry)

1) Java Developers

2) Ruby Developers

3) Web Developers

To sum it up, we urge you to come learn with us. Tell your friends and family, and spread the word. The Digital Arts Experience of White Plains in Westchester is committed to empowering today’s youth, as well as, any adult whom wants to learn or sharpen their digital skills! Contact us via email, phone, or website. Thank you for reading!
