Education and Technology
ABC Club (SOLD OUT)

HTS is very excited to announce the return of the ABC Club summer literacy program (formerly AlphaBesties). The goal of the ABC Club is to engage all campers in fun and exciting language-based activities and exercises, with an additional focus on the development of reading and writing skills for all types of learners. Research has shown that children who attend a summer literacy enrichment program display reading progress and have an easier transition into the coming academic school year. At ABC, we will provide your child with a positive environment to learn, read, write, and explore their natural curiosities inside and outside of the classroom.

Each day, our program consists of a morning literacy learning period that will nurture and support students individually in reading and writing with both group and independent activities. The afternoon will be composed of different learning opportunities such as exploring the forest, co-operative games, visual arts, songs, music, yoga, cooking and more. Other aspects of the program include weekly themes, outdoor water play and an end of the week progress report.

Ages: Entering JK/SK/Grade 1

START Camp

HTS is thrilled to announce the return of the START (Skills Targeting and Reinforcement for Transition) Program to support students with the complex shift from Lower to Middle School. This 2-week program focuses on continuing to build numeracy, literacy, and learning skills necessary for the transition from grade 5 to 6. Students will be given the task of designing a home based on a client's specifications. Through this  problem based learning opportunity we will explore geometric and algebraic principles, linking our understanding of mathematical concepts to the real world. Furthermore, through a workshop based approach we will explore narrative and argumentative texts and work toward creating our own narrative text and arguments, resulting in a class anthology of our greatest writing pieces. These experiences will allow us to build independent and collaborative skills such as active listening, problem solving, prioritizing, planning, and organizing. We look forward to learning through investigation and fun!

In AI Pioneers, our emerging engineers will learn how to create projects for social good with Python programming language. Through hands-on coding, students will learn how computers can use data to solve complex problems like natural language processing and computer vision. Our students will explore the ways they can meaningfully use AI to predict heart disease, create social robots, assist with disaster relief, and navigate autonomous vehicles. In our curriculum, we emphasize ethical responsibility, career paths in artificial intelligence, and interdisciplinary applications! From beginner to advanced coders, we envision a future where students of all backgrounds can contribute towards a bright future of inclusivity and technological advancement. Please read more information about the program here. Course Structure Machine Learning Talks Learn about machine learning algorithms and techniques in a uniquely interactive, engaging format, before you apply that knowledge in live coding labs.

AI Scholars: An Artificial Intelligence Intensive for High Schoolers

What do self-driving cars, Alexa, iPhone's face recognition technology, and ChatGPT have in common? They are driven by modern advances in artificial intelligence. Whether you’re interested in law, healthcare, art, or economics, AI is poised to transform every discipline and industry in the future. AI is already all around us today, and by the end of the program, students will understand the underlying concepts and motivations behind technology such as computer vision, natural language processing, and neural networks. In this course, we will explore the foundations of machine learning and explore different applications of machine learning models. In the first half of the course, students learn AI’s core technologies including applications, foundational concepts, and programming tools through live lectures and coding labs. Students will not only learn about different types of machine learning models, but also apply those models to real data sets. In the second half of the course, students will complete an instructor-led group project applying AI to the discipline of their choice (e.g., music, healthcare, astrophysics, finance, etc.), utilizing the programming skills they developed in the first half. Please read more information about the program here.
