Imagineering

 

Imagineering is a class that introduces kids to the fundamental skills of making and programming. Students will take part in activities that teach 21st century skills through games, storytelling and of course, making.

 

At the end of the class, students will be given the opportunity to apply these skills to a hands on project using hand tools, craft materials, and digital fabrication tools (3D printers and the laser cutter). By focusing on these proficiencies, students can develop a more permanent understanding of concepts in engineering and computer programming, which translate to making and beyond.

We offer an optional $60 robotics kit that you can use to take your project home and continue experimenting with it. This kit includes several basic parts to complete a robotics project and can be reused for future programs at STEAMLabs and beyond! If your child is interested in exploring robotics in this class and using it in their project, this kit can also be purchased afterwards with the instructor.

 

We offer a limited number of program scholarships. The application deadline is one month before the program begins and we will get back to successful scholarship recipients about 1-2 weeks before the program begins!
