July 27 – July 31 Hackers (grades 3-5)
SUMMER OF STEAM 2020
MAKER SCIENCE: (morning)
Plant Parade: Come one, come all to our plant exploration workshop! This week we will be dissecting plants part by part and thinking like scientists. We will learn the roles different plant parts play in their growth. There will be excursions to local areas to get familiar with native, nonnative, invasive, and cultivated species.
MAKER ROBOTICS: (afternoon)
Robotics Code Lab: RVR
The amazing RVR is equipped with all-terrain treads, a powerful motor, and plenty of torque so it can go faster and farther. RVR is also packed with a diverse suite of sensors, and built for customization. Using the Sphero Edu app students will code RVR through a color maze and test RVR’s torque by building ramps and measuring incline angles. We will use 3rd party companies such as littleBits & micro:bit to hack the RVR.
