This beginners course is split into 2 elements Electro and Roboto. For the first half of the session your mini maker will learn the fundamentals of circuitry and resistance through collaboration and experimentation with microcontrollers, wires, and conductors. This is a tactile maker class uses dough and electronics. There will also be mini projects. Roboto is an introductory robot course with Cubelets (robot cubes that easily magnetically click together and can be used in combination with Legos). We will teach students the basic functions of how robots work. We will discover and learn about robotics through teamwork, reading, and drawing. We will investigate the robots through experimentation “open play” and become scientist by doing fun robot challenges.
Mini Maker STEAM Lab WB Fall 2019
This class is a unique opportunity for younger students to engage in STEAM where they will get to do creative fun crafts, explore physics, chemistry, robotics, circuitry and so much more! Students will get to create their own games, slime concoctions, stop motion animation clips, catapults, work with with cubelets and more.
