MAKE a Marvelous Marble Machine: Rube Goldberg Creations!

rube GIFLet’s get weird and creative while we engineer! Work independently and in a group to construct a Rube Goldberg style marble machine. The goal will be to move a marble from one end of an obstacle course to the other, but the methods or means by which that is accomplished will be left to your imagination and ingenuity. Sections can range from very low to very high tech: a catapult made from rubber bands and a clothes pin to an autonomous revolving door programmed and controlled by an Arduino Board. We’ll create a massive and intricate contraption with levers, switches, triggers and a whole lot of dominoes!

 

Camp Dates:
Session 1: June 22nd – 26th ; 9am – 12pm
Session 2: July 13th – 17th ; 9am – 12pm

Grades:  6th – 8th

Coding with Arduino

digital_sandbox

Learn the basics of Arduino programming with Sparkfun’s new Digital Sandbox. The Digital Sandbox (DS) is a learning platform that engages both the software and hardware worlds. It’s powered by a micro controller that can interact with real-world inputs like light or temperature sensors while at the same time controlling LEDs, motors, and other outputs. During this workshop, participants will learn to code using Ardublock, which is an easy to use programming framework for Arduino.

Camp Dates:
July 7th – 10th ; 9am – 12pm

Grades:  5th – 8th

Registration Fee: $100

Optional Fee: $75 Sparkfun’s Arduino Digital Sandbox Kit to keep


Innovator’s Laser Camp

In this workshop, you’ll see your design come to life!! We’ll help you take your ideas from paper to reality as you learn the basics of industrial design. You’ll begin with a simple sketch of your invention, then you will create an orthographic drawing of your design and use design software to create a digital blueprint of your creation. The workshop will culminate with a scale model of your original design printed on a 3D printer or cut with a CNC Laser. You’ll be on your way to pursue a path in industrial design, architecture, or other creative fields.

Camp Dates:

July 20th – 24th

Grades: 5th – 8th

Registration Fee: $120

Gain confidence in your keyframing, in-betweening, filming, editing and audio skills and learn firsthand what it takes to make cartoons. This class is for ages 10 to 18 for any skill level, but if you like drawing it will be a plus.  Learn the essential skills involved in making drawn animation and walk away with a film that you can show friends and family!
