This class teaches basic concepts of engineering and technology while actively testing students’ construction, programming, and design skills. Working and playing with LEGO makes it easy to integrate fun and learning as they are shown how interesting robots can be.
Students will build their own functioning robot and will use it to participate in competitions. Learn to build and control your own robots in our basic skills course, or take your learning to the next level with our Advanced LEGO Robotics!

The Science and Art of Game Design Club is a joint effort between ITEC and the Serious Game Design program at Michigan State University. Working together with real game designers, students will explore the science and technology involved with game design, learn how to apply new skills and prior knowledge to game design, and discuss how to make games fun. This is done by playing a wide range of games, improving existing games, and even creating games completely from scratch.
Students may take part in game design challenges, where they can compete against other schools to make the best game they can on a particular theme.

ITEC offers digital media classes in collaboration with faculty and artists from Michigan State University. The course will enable students to design their own media – a composition of their own ideas, interests, and passions. They will use computer technology, video technology, and music to learn about synthesis, arrangement, composing, and other literacy skills. They will also be introduced to the professions which use these skills and be invited to imagine themselves in these roles, both as part of the project and in their future education and careers.
Come join us for an introduction to basic media design and publishing. Working as a small group, you and your team will create music videos, animations, a short movie or a documentary, and learn to shoot, edit, and publish your work.

Have you ever wanted to make your own mobile application, but you don’t know code? Fortunately, developers at MIT and Google teamed up to create an educational programming interface that is accessible, fun, and relevant.
ITEC’s App Design course teaches the basics of programming for the Android mobile operating system through the use of the Google App Inventor software. Students will learn all about Android hardware, the basics of coding, and how to use tools to create an app of their own. By the end of the class students will have created dozens of apps and will walk away with the necessary skills to continue exploring and creating independently.
