Robotics Lab: Design Challenge + Battlebots (morning)
Battlebots is a course designed to slowly introduce children to the vast and complex world of robotics, coding, and collaborative competition. In this course students will encounter a new robot every month, learn to code each one, collaboratively design obstacle courses, and work in teams through set challenges. In addition, students will be working on long term take home robotics projects incorporating basic circuitry, motors, and recyclables. Students will learn the art of building, design, harnessing their creativity, and critical thinking all culminating in a final day of battling their favorite robots on a set of obstacle courses and challenges.
Art + Design Lab: Urban Street Art (afternoon)
New York City is home to some of the most beautiful works of street art, especially in our home, Brooklyn! In this class students will draw inspiration from community art to create their own art pieces and learn about culture, style, and technique, breaking through the negative perceptions of the amazing art form. This course will foster their sense of community, creativity and further develop their artistic eye. This class is part art, part design, and part exploration of the neighborhood with field trips. Students will be led on neighborhood excursions where they will discuss stylistic differences, reasonings behind them, and multimodal methods of street art. Back on site, the class will create their own art inspired by what they discovered using a multitude of materials like chalk, moss, & mural advertising like Colossal Media.
