    From vending machines and automatic doors to robotic vacuum cleaners and Google cars – robots are part of everyday life. Give your child the opportunity to gain the necessary skills to be the mastermind of their own creation, and gain access to this fast growing industry. Working in small groups of 4-6 students led by trained staff members, participants in our robotics courses will acquire the mechanical skills and programming knowledge to design, build, and control their own robot. At the conclusion of each project, we host a showcase event in which all the students present their product and share their learning with the audience.


    Robotics & Automation | Suggested Grade Level:4th -8th
    Mondays 1/8 – 1/28

    Is your child ready for the Robot Economy? In order to understand robotics, they must gain knowledge in the areas of electronics, mechanics, and computer programming. In the Level 1 class, you will learn the basics of robotics by building and programming an autonomous car. Your car will drive itself and be able to avoid obstacles to help you better understand the complexities of  automation. In the Level 2 class, you will be challenged to think like a NASA engineer and modify your car to collect data about the planet of your choice. Are you ready to begin your journey?
    *Alternative dates will be arranged for sessions that fall on a national holiday. A complete schedule will be provided on the first day of class.

    Sensors are used in robots, smart phones, video game controllers, musical instruments, and more.  They are the eyes and ears of the machines and devices we’ve all come to rely on. Using your creativity and imagination along with an Arduino, you can create your own devices that will respond to data collected by sensors. An Arduino is an electronic brain that listens and responds to sensor data, which can create amazing LED light displays, make an alarm clock buzz, and even control the motors of a robot. During this class, you will use a variety of sensors plus an Arduino, and a little know-how to build multiple electronics projects, including musical instruments, an electronic game, and a digital thermometer. In the end, you’ll be thinking like an Electrical Engineer and learning how to use electronic components to create, invent and innovate.

    The fast growing field of Biomedical Engineering combines the sciences of medicine and biology with principles of engineering to help improve human health. In this project, the students will prototype a prosthetic hand, controlled by an Arduino and servos. The servos will act like muscles contracting and releasing the fingers, mimicking our own hand. Take this opportunity, and learn the basics of this dynamic engineering field!
