SUMMER OF STEAM 2020
MAKER ROBOTICS: (morning)
Robotics Coding Club: CUBED
Cubelets uses tactile coding to help builders explore robotics, coding, and more. As you build a robot, you learn to build a program. It’s a fun and fascinating way to introduce big ideas through play. There’s no wrong way to build with Cubelets, so it is remarkably easy to transform these blocks into brilliant bundles of robotic curiosity. You don’t need to know how to code or wire to construct robots with Cubelets. Snap the robot blocks together and the magnetic faces do the rest. Every unique arrangement is a new robot with novel behaviors emerging from the construction. Logical thinking, patterns and sequencing are developed as students’ problem solve to put together their creations.
MAKER SCIENCE: (afternoon)
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.
