Soft Circuits (Grades K-2) 

Reimagine circuitry with MODA. Using conductive and insulating materials, young designers will get hands-on experience making, testing, and refining circuits that highlight basic electronic properties.

In this workshop, designers in grades K-2 will use common materials to develop an understanding of how circuits function. Designers will use coin cell batteries, LEDs, aluminum foil, conductive and insulating play-doh and other tools to make their own working circuits that are not only creative, but functional. Using these skills and tools they learn how to give electricity to the world around them. Students will also get to take home their own working flashlights

Cost: $10/person.

Chaperones that will be participating in the workshop will be charged $10/person, while non-participating chaperones are free. 

This workshop is limited to 30 persons.

Soft Circuits (Grades 3+) 

Soft circuits are also known as electronic textiles — a way to craft your own versatile wearable accessories. Grab a needle, conductive thread, and fabric and join us as we use design and technology to explore this new and exciting type of design by making a soft circuit button.

Learn sewing, circuitry basics, and how to combine them both on this field trip! Explore everything from running stitches and tying off thread to the science behind circuits and how to create different kinds from series to parallel. Balance functionality with practicality in a manner that’s both accessible and affordable to create your own piece of wearable technology! Bring your tinkering mind, and we’ll provide the conductive materials.

Cost: $10/person.

Chaperones that will be participating in the workshop will be charged $10/person, while non-participating chaperones are free.

This workshop is limited to 30 persons.

Introduction to 3D Design and Printing Workshop

At MODA, we're 100% on board with the Maker Movement's manifesto, which says that "making is fundamental to what it means to be human." We believe that one of the best ways to explore a problem and to find solutions is by using your hands to make, learn, and explore.

Our 3D printing workshop provides an introduction to designing in 3 dimensions. Students will learn how a 3D printer works and participate in a 3D modeling demo with MODA instructors using the computer aided design (CAD) program, Tinkercad. Students will work collaboratively to design an item for their community that MODA will print and mail.

Cost: $15/person.

Chaperones that will be participating in the workshop will be charged $15/person, while non-participating chaperones are free.

This workshop is limited to 30 persons.
