Circuit Makers 101 and/or App Inventors (Grades 4-7)
Circuit Makers 101 9:00AM-12:00PM
Let's get creative with electricity! In this hands-on electronics program, students will gain experience with creating their own electronics, designing custom light-up greeting cards, electric games, mazes and even musical instruments. Each day will consist of a circuitry lesson and a hands-on electronics project, using components like lights, buzzers, switches, motors and sensors. Circuit Lab staff will make sure participants create a project that they can be proud of each day. Most days will include a take-home project.
App Inventors 12:45PM-3:45PM
Want to know how the apps work on your phone or iPad? Or do you already have the next great app idea, and just need to know how to make it? In this no-experience-required course, we use MIT App Inventor software to make fun, creative apps for Android phones and tablets. We will also explore wireless communication by building custom bluetooth hardware controllers and readouts for our apps. Participants will learn both the programming and design aspects of creating great apps, and have the opportunity to build apps of their own with the support of Circuit Lab instructors.
Register for both programs (9:00AM-3:45PM) for only $372.00 (discount will be applied at checkout).
