Inventioneering

 

Do you often dream up ideas and inventions – but rarely ever get the chance to bring them to life? Using a combination of high tech tools (3D printing, laser cutting, electronics), wood working and craft, we provide the mentorship and structure to help you turn your sketched ideas into working prototypes – led by your own interests, imagination and ingenuity.

 

Whether you’re bursting with ideas, or you’re not sure what you’re interested in, we will guide you from idea to plan to making.

 

Past projects have included remote controlled shoes, a snack delivering robot, an alarmed heart-rate monitor, an internet controlled colour-changing marker and remote control spaceships.

 

Here are some of the technologies students will have the opportunity to work with:

  • 3D Design and Printing
  • Arduino programming
  • Electronics
  • Mechanisms
  • Woodworking

Already have a robotics kit you want to reuse?
(Note: if your child has a kit from a previous program that was used in a project they do not want to disassemble to reuse the kit parts, it is required to purchase the $340 program cost including a new kit)

 

$280 / 7 week program (without a new kit)

 

If you decide you want a brand new kit, they can be purchased at $60 + HST after the first class, upon request and availability.
