Arduino Robotics for kids

Ages 10+

 

In this 7-week program you will learn the basics of robotics, electronics, coding & construction, through the design and construction of your very own robot.

Using Arduino (robot “brains”), electronic components, web programming (HTML & CSS), 3D printing and craft supplies, you’ll go home with an applied understanding of how real-life robots work and what is involved in bringing them to life.

Video Game Programming for kids

Ages 8-12

 

In our video game programming class, kids will use Scratch software to create their own playable games. This software, developed by MIT, encourages creative and logical thinking and teaches real programming concepts. In addition to working individually, they will also work in groups, allowing them to focus on the parts of game design they enjoy the most – game mechanics, graphic design, sounds, programming and more.

Imagineering for kids

Ages 6-9

 

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, such as collaboration and critical thinking, through games and storytelling. At the end of the class, they 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 dispositions, students can develop a more permanent understanding of concepts in engineering and computer programming, which translate to making and beyond.
