3D Printing Middle School (Grades 6th– 8th) Tuesdays: 3:30 – 5:00 PM, January 14th– February 25th

Course Fee: $220 / 6 weeks / Mamaroneck High School Palmer 107

Creativity just got technological with the ability to design and create 3D objects! Students will discover the history of this incredible technology and learn how to safely and properly operate a 3D printer. Using TinkerCAD, a free web based modeling program, students will design and 3D print original objects from scratch! Students will begin with simple projects including making a paperweight, key chains and simple Jewelry. Once the basics are covered students will potentially branch out to more advanced topics including making a working hinge, practical everyday designs and even figurines.

All equipment and materials included.

Young Makers Workshops (Grades 4th– 5th) Thursdays: 4:30 – 5:00 PM, January 16th – February 27th

Course Fee: $295 / 6 weeks / Mamaroneck High School Palmer 107

Explore the world of Making in the 21st Century!  In this program students work with an Arduino microcontroller (Circuit Playground) – a small computer we can code to interact with the world around us. The Arduino microcontroller is the perfect introduction to electronics and programming because it is packed with sensors and it’s easy to code with a Scratch-like programming language.

Over the course of the six classes students will learn how to control RGB LEDS, accelerometer, sound and light sensors, speakers, buttons and more all through code. Variables, loops, conditional statements and more will be used in conjunction with the device’s outputs to create inventions like an interactive digital game (think Simon), a custom night light that reacts to the light around it, a magic trick to impress friends and more! This is the perfect class for young minds to be prepared for a world of technology!  Class fee includes all equipment and components.
