Announcing Fall 2015 Wilmington Program

GRADES : 4-6
LAB : OCTOBER 17, 2015 : 9:00 - 3:00PM
WEBINAR DATES : 09/28, 10/05, 10/12 ( TOTAL 3 WEBINARS )
WEBINAR TIME : 4:30 - 5:30PM

Class Details & Information:

Do you have someone who loves building things, from LEGOs, to K’Nex, to whatever they find in the garage? Do they read stories about inventors and their inventions? This class is for them. They will use 3D Printers*, little Bits, LEGO robotics, molding and casting materials, TinkerCad, and more to make their very own inventions. We will teach them the engineering method by introducing them to different technologies and then, giving them time to design and build their own ideas. With our experience in engineering & STEM and thousands of dollars worth of materials and equipment, your student will get an experience that can’t be duplicated.

Webinars will be held September 28, October 5 & 12, and followed by an all day workshop on Saturday, October 17th from 9:00-3:00PM. The cost is $192 and includes ALL materials.

Young Engineers Of Today Now Enrolling for Fall 2015 Semester.

This Fall our students will be using new rapid prototyping equipment including a CNC machine, laser cutters and milling machines to begin learning how to make almost anything.  We are strengthening our program by adding more 3D Printers (10 or more) and buying the all new and more powerful Raspberry Pi computers for our students. We will be offering programs for Grades 5 thru 12. 

We will cover the following topics starting in the fall:

●    3D Design and prototyping using laser cutters and 3D printers
●    Using Shopbot (CNC router) to make living hinges
●    Electronics and Arduino microcontrollers with new projects
●    OpenSCAD using computer code to create objects.
●    Milling machines and circuit board creation
●    Programming using Python
●    Physical computing with the new Raspberry Pi version 2

As always, the labs and Webinars (we like to think of them as “Labinars” since the kids are doing labs at home) will continue to feature hands-on projects that focus on relevant, inquiry-based learning.
