HyperStream provides programming and learning modules to club leaders. Members learn a variety of concepts and skills in technology. Members can choose to focus in any of these three areas of technology:
- Robotics: Members are challenged to understand the purpose and procedures of robotics. Using Lego Mindstorms NXT software and education kits, teams build robots and create coding commands for robots to follow.
- Game Design: Teams use the Alice programming system to experiment with programming logic and language. Members blend technology with creativity to create educational game worlds with virtual characters and plots.
- Multimedia: Members learn about a variety of mediums as they dapple into fields of photography, photo editing, video production, presentation software, web design and more. Multimedia teams create a collection of multimedia projects wrapped around marketing and product development.
