    Engineer, Hello World
    $600 (no additional BTC fee)
    Engineers from Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon have joined forces to create a rigorous and introductory catalog of project-based learning experiences centered on mastering concepts in four emerging technology fields – web development, game engineering, data science, and artificial intelligence. Coursework covers key programming languages including front-end and object-oriented coding (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), game engineering languages (C, C++, Java), data analysis software (Python, SQL), and machine learning programming built upon data science objectives. Students will engage in full cycles of the design thinking process to apply learnings and define, ideate, prototype, and test solutions to real world challenges. All weekly sessions will take place on St. Andrew’s campus with a 7:1 instructor to student ratio. Additional programming outside of weekly sessions will take place off-site in IBM’s innovation lab and at the Google space in downtown Austin and will include events such as a student panel on STEM advocacy, tech hackathon, and student pitch competition. This program is intended for students with an interest in design, creative problem solving, and computer science.

    This leadership and community service opportunity brings our Middle Schoolers together with Lower Schoolers for support and fun. Middle Schoolers assist in study hall and with homework help. They may also choose an Enrichment Class in an area of interest and act as an assistant in that class. They earn community service hours for their participation.

Middle School (6-8)

After-school supervision for Middle School students includes snack, study hall, gym or field time, enrichment and community service opportunities.  For enrichment, students may participate in private piano, guitar, violin and viola lessons or enrichment classes offered in other disciplines.  In the Middle School Mentors program, students support younger students in study hall or act as Enrichment class assistants as a way of serving the SAS community.
