Hands-On Electronics - 7/22/24 - 7/26/24
Grades 4-7 - 9am - 12noon
Tinker with electronics while learning the basics of computer programming. We begin by experimenting with the fundamentals of electronics and circuitry, and step up to projects where our class of young makers will design their own interactive and programmable devices. Participants use the latest tools including Arduino (for building interactive devices) and Raspberry Pi (for learning about computers and coding) to experiment with LEDs, resistors, motors, and programming. Each class day gives participants the chance to design a hands-on project with the guidance of skilled Circuit Lab instructors.

App Inventors - 7/22/24 - 7/26/24
Grades 4-7 - 1pm - 4pm

Want to know how the apps work on your phone or iPad? Or do you already have the next great app idea, and just need to know
how to make it? In this no-experience-required course, we use MIT App Inventor software to make fun, creative apps for Android
phones and tablets. We will also explore wireless communication by building custom bluetooth hardware controllers and readouts
for our apps. Participants will learn both the programming and design aspects of creating great apps, and have the opportunity to
build apps of their own with the support of Circuit Lab instructors.

Circuit Makers 101 - 8/12/24 - 8/16/24
Grades 1-3 - 9am - 12pm

Let’s get creative with electricity! In this junior version of our Hands-On Electronics class, students will gain experience with creating their own electronics; designing custom light-up greeting cards, electric games, mazes, and even musical instruments. Each class day consists of a circuitry lesson and a hands-on electronics project, using components like lights, buzzers, switches, motors, and sensors. Circuit Lab staff will make sure participants create a project that they can be proud of each day. Most class days include a take-home project.

Robot Commanders 101 - 8/12/24 - 8/16/24
For grades 1-3 - 1pm - 4pm

Understanding how software can interact with robots is a key skill for the STEM jobs of tomorrow. In this class we provide several active, playful activities, where students learn about what it means to write, debug, and execute computer programs that communicate with different robotic devices. Using the power of code, students will turn Sphero SPRK+ robots into Magic 8 Balls, automated Red Light / Green Light games, and the arcade classic Pong — and Unruly Splats will become our voting machines, relay races, guessing games, and more.
