Fall 2021 Remote Class
Unit One: Recycled Science
In this unit, students will be learning basic interaction and interface design through hacking recycled materials, found objects and incorporating Micro:Bit and block coding into their projects to create innovative sustainable tech devices, while learning about the art of repurposing materials.
Unit Two: Mini City Design
In this unit, we 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!
