We have developed a program called the Software Engineering Lab (SEL). The SEL is designed to give students an opportunity to be a part of a full scale software development project from start to finish.
The SEL includes all aspects of a real world software development project. Over six months, students will participate in client meetings, draft functional specifications, work on preliminary designs, program, test, troubleshoot, and document their processes.
SEL students learn software development skills and acquire experiences unavailable in traditional K-12 science curricula, yet extremely valuable in today's high tech local and global workforce.
The software development projects undertaken by the SEL will all be internet based applications. As such, students will get an opportunity to learn about website presentation (HTML, CSS); internet based scripting and programming languages (PHP, Java, ASP); database development (MySQL); all in the context of the Open Source Software model. Upon completion, each project will be available on SourceForge, one of the largest open source software repositories in the world. Each student will be given proper credit as a member of the project development team.
Acceptance to this program requires a student application. The maximum number of students per SEL session is 12. The ratio of high school to middle school students is roughly 3:1. The application process ensures that there will be an adequate level of interest on each student's part to remain in the program for the full six months. While there is no specific baseline of software or programming language knowledge necessary as a prerequisite to be considered for the SEL, the students must have a willingness to tackle these subject areas.
Robotics And Beyond Leadership
With each SEL session we will invite 1 or 2 students who have participated in past SELs to be a part of the Robotics And Beyond leadership team. They will be invaluable in sharing their experiences with the new SEL team, and will assume a leadership role in the project, as well as mentor the younger students, for which they will receive a small stipend. In addition, the Robotics And Beyond team will invite and involve industry professionals when and where needed during specific aspects of the project.
Please note: There will be 'work at home' opportunities during much of the SEL project.
As with all Robotics And Beyond programs, student financial aid will be available where funding allows.
Online applications for the next SEL are now available.
Accepted applicants will be notified on a rolling basis and be given a choice of participating in either the Wednesday evening SEL held from 6-8 pm or the Friday afternoon SEL held from 4-6 pm.
