Starts: September 14, 2019 - January 24, 2020
Fridays at Gadget Lab offers kids a chance to engage in hands on learning across a variety of disciplines. It’s like a mini engineering degree that includes electronics, music, coding, mechanical principles and more.
There will be a maximum of five kids and one or two adult instructors. Kids can come directly after school and care is provided until 6:30. The workshops will be 70-90 minutes leaving time to unwind with a snack, play outside or enjoy time tinkering in the Lab.
We’ll start by exploring how things around us work. How does a battery make electricity? Why does a motor spin? Kids make fun projects built around these topics that broaden to include circuits and how to control them with code. The first semester builds skills toward creating a remote control robot from the ground up in the spring semester. The robots used recycled cardboard, speakers and toy parts to create one of a kind machines that are fun to build and a hoot when finished.
Note: You can pay by check or PayPal in two installments. If you pay in full at the time of registration you will receive a $35 refund. Jason has set aside Fridays for the semester so I cannot offer refunds for this workshops series. Makeups can generally be done during the regular workshop by me or Jason.
Bookings are closed for this class.
