Fridays at Gadget Lab

Sep 14 - Jan 24

Time: 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm
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.

The workshop runs for a full semester and each three hour session is $55 which includes instruction and materials.  Gadget Lab will provide a healthy snack for $3.

Workshops will be led by Gadget Lab owner Karen Giacopuzzi or by Jason Mullinax, owner of Music Discovery Lab.    You can read more about us here.

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.
