CHIPS Summer Computer Camp"STEAMed up Learning" at Chattanooga Autism Center
Ms. Rachel Kelly and her mother, Tekelia Kelly, founder and owner of CHIPS, will offer education enrichment similar to that they delivered at the Chattanooga Autism Center over the summer. In debut of their new CHIPS STEAM Computer Camp, four young men with Aspergers, from high schools in Dalton and Signal Mountain, engaged in rigorous game design, code programming, 3D graphics, animations, and music production.

They also piloted Tekelia Kelly’s new CODA music programming curriculum; a “whole-brain” learning framework that teaches music, art, history, social skills and coding, while students learn how to play music on a device like a Makey Makey Arduino microcontroller. Each camper’s project was pitched as part of their electronic portfolio at the end of camp and awarded with certificates for innovation and technology skills. Read full article here.
