littleBits Circuitry Workshops for Kids

littleBits are color-coded “Bits modules” that snap together magnetically to make it easy for children to learn about electronics while building simple circuits and inventive projects in seconds.

In our littleBits Circuitry classes, children ages 8-12 will build electric circuits and use them to bring animate animals they've created or superhero gadgets they've designed.

On You: Wearing Technology

June 26 - October 2, 2016

Wearable technology and head-mounted displays are in the press daily. Why now? While the basic technology has existed for decades, only recently have these devices become practical and desirable.

On You: Wearing Technology looks at the challenges along the road to making a consumer wearable computer: power and heat, networking, mobile input, and display through examples of consumer, professional, and “maker” devices.  The exhibition also includes personal stories of individuals who use or create wearable technology. Are you wearing technology? Is technology ON YOU?

  • Clint Zeagler – Curator & Designer
  • Thad Starner – Curator & Designer
  • Maria Wong Sala – Designer & Photographer
  • Yoni Kaplan – Designer
  • Kevin Shankwiler – Designer

This exhibition is sponsored by the Georgia Tech Wearable Computing Center

3D Printing from Minecraft

In our 3D printing from Minecraft classes, kids ages 8-15 take their gaming skills to the next level as they design structures in Minecraft that can be printed on one of our 3D Printers (due to print times, items will be ready for pick-up within a few days).

In these workshops, students will:

  • become familiar with a basic 3d design software
  • learn how to design an object by manipulating basic shapes, symbols and texts
  • learn about 3D printing, its materials, and processes
