Introduction to LEGO Robotics Workshop
Robotics just got LEGOtastic. Join us for a hands-on, STEAM workshop using LEGO robotics to design, build, and program robots that interact with the world around them.
Simple Circuits Workshop
Use coin cell batteries, LEDs, aluminum foil, conductive and insulating play-doh to design your own functioning flashlight! Students will learn about basic electronic properties and take home their own working flashlights!
Grades 3 and Up
With e-textiles you can create your own versatile electronic accessories and objects. Join us as we explore how soft circuit buttons. Learn sewing, circuitry basics, and how to combine them both to design an e-textile object on this field trip!
