June 29 – July 3 Hackers (grades 3-5)
SUMMER OF STEAM 2020
MAKER ENGINEERING: (morning)
Mini City Design
This class will feature all sorts of experiments in which we will design and create our own miniature infrastructure for miniature cities. This means real experiments building and testing magnetic bullet trains, real bridges made from dry spaghetti that can hold up to 50 lbs., and miniature cities and skyscrapers made out of Lego. Drawing from real examples of the city around us, we will use what we know to go deeper and see how the bridges, trains, and buildings we use every day actually work.
MAKER GAMER/CODER: (afternoon)
In this course, students will be combining two awesome activities: Minecraft and coding. With qCraft and Computer-Craft mods students will use a turtle, a robot inside the game, to learn to code, craft and create custom mods. Students will also learn how to control blocks using code, write programs, create mini games and lots more exciting stuff! This course will help improve their coding skills.
