An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until July 30, 2020
Grades: 6 – 8
Dates: July 27 – 30 | 9AM-10AM (Zoom), 10-11:30 Open Work, 11:30-NOON (Zoom)

Materials Needed: Device with Internet access, Arduino Elegoo kit (available for curbside pick-up at the Education and Human Services Building for all participants. Shipping materials may also be requested – see above for details and potential costs.)
Want to build your own electronics? A remote-controlled door lock? A temperature-sensing cooling fan? An interactive teddy bear? An automatic nerf gun? In this program, participants will use sensors, motors, and microcontrollers to build circuits to control everyday things. They will learn how to connect circuits, power motors, and program Arduino Unos. No prior experience necessary; they will start with the basics.
