• The Brandywine School District's second annual Middle School STEM Camp was another huge success!  The one-week camp, held at P.S. duPont Middle School, involved 35 students from P.S., Springer, and Talley and was run by Mount Pleasant High School engineering teacher Brooks Twilley and Concord High School engineering teacher Jordan Estock. At the end of the action-packed week, each camper went home with a Raspberry Pi computer, loaded with the Rasbian Operating System and the creativity sandbox game Minecraft, in a custom built lasercut/3D printed enclosure.  Each student designed their enclosure and laser cut it on Monday, then designed and printed a character/figure/meme to mount to their Pi on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, students were introduced to the Raspberry Pi and the programming language Python, and were shown how to program Minecraft on their Pi using Python.  On Thursday, the students took a field trip to tour Dupont's HIIT (Highly Instrumented Impact Testing) Lab and Wilmington University's Game Design program. On Friday, campers put the finishing touches on their Raspberry Pi hardware, software, and custom-made enclosure to take home.
