  “Blender” Computing Camp

Virtual Camp * Entering Grades 9-12 * June 28-July 2 * 9AM-NOON * $160 * Needs-based scholarships available

Are you in awe of the 3D computer graphics you see in movies, TV shows, and games?  Do you wonder what it takes to do that?  Do you think that you can be creative like that too, if only you could just get started?  Have we got a camp for you!  Blender is a totally awesome software package that allows you to do your own 3D modeling, rendering, and animation.  In this camp, you will use it to learn 3D viewing, moving objects in 3D, creating 3D geometry, coloring, lighting, rendering, and animation. It’s demanding computer work, but the results will amaze you! Best of all, Blender software is free, so you can keep using it long after the camp is over. This camp will move through subject material quickly and is designed for those students who will enjoy a high-intensity creative experience. Please go to blender.org and load the Blender software onto your computer and make sure it runs before signing up for this camp. If you have any questions about loading software, please email [email protected]

  OSU Summer Transportation Institute

Hybrid Camp * Morning at OSU and Afternoon at Home * Entering Grades 9-12 * July 26-30 * 9AM-4PM * N/C (Lunch Provided)

Have you ever wondered how transportation systems are planned, designed, constructed, operated, and maintained? In this camp, students will engage in a combination of hands-on learning, local "field trips", and remote activities that emphasize the importance and breadth of the transportation engineering discipline. The camp is being scheduled for hybrid delivery but could move more towards in-person activities if the situation allows. In-person activities, including lunch, will be held between 9 am and 1 pm; remote activities will be held between 2:30 pm and 4 pm. In-person activities will include a local bike tour, drone activity, and design session in which students will have the opportunity to propose solutions to real-world challenges. Remote activities will include virtual tours of the Corvallis Airport and OSU Marine Studies Building in Newport, a hands-on evacuation modeling activity, and presentations on topics including transportation resilience, distracted driving, engineering ethics, and emerging modes of transportation. Note: This program has received substantive external funding from FHWA and ODOT and will be offered at no cost to participating students. ONLY Oregon residents are eligible for this camp. Acceptance into this camp will depend on their application. The first step will be to complete the online registration for this camp, after which students will submit short answers to a few questions to be considered for acceptance. To register for this camp, please go to tinyurl.com/OSU2021STI (please note this is a different link from the regular summer camp link).
