CIRCUIT MAKERS 101 ONLINE (Grades: 1-3)
Let’s get creative with electricity! In this junior hands-on electronics class, students will gain experience with creating their own electronics; designing custom light-up greeting cards, electric games, mazes, and more. 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 many projects that they can be proud of, and each class day includes a project to keep. Material kits will be distributed ahead of the program.
SCRATCH PROGRAMMING ONLINE (Grades 3-6)
Let's write some code! In this class, designed for computer programming beginners, we will use the Scratch programming language to create interactive stories, animations, and even custom computer games. Scratch was developed by MIT, and has a user-friendly interface that is fun and intuitive. Through their projects, participants will also develop logical thinking skills and an understanding of how computers work. No previous programming experience is necessary. At the end of the class, participants can keep copies of their programs to take home or continue developing in the online Scratch community.
These classes will be held virtually through Zoom.
