We are here to help your kids discover their talents and start applying STEM principles and problem solving in everyday life. This is your chance to help us raise another generation of independent thinkers. DONATE TODAY to help us maintain our classes, provide necessary training to our young mentors, and ensure access to all. Together we help keep this community educated and help our children build a better future for everyone.
Grades 6-10 or by permission. Summer camps, 1 to 2 hour, multi-day classes, and 1-day workshops. In-person only.
Circuit boards are the heart of every electronic device we encounter. In this class, you will learn about every step of the process, from design to prototyping to fabrication. Learn the basics of simple circuits, and soldering electrical components like resistors, capacitors and LED lights onto circuit boards and see them work. Learn the simple equations and math that are the basis of electricity and circuits. Learn to use the free software TinkerCAD for designing and testing electrical circuits. Students will also work with a breadboard to make circuits without soldering and learn to solder using commercially produced boards designed by former Robotics And Beyond students and mentors who went on to design iPhones at Apple.
Also available: Students can arrange to bring their own electronic projects to work on and have assistance as needed.
