About THis CLASS
We’re rolling out the newest craze to hit the kids’ market - littleBits as seen on TED! Does your student love to explore and build with hands-on, creative activities? Let’s take that excitement and add in electronics and circuits! Students use littleBits and other cool circuits that move, light, and make noise to create amazing contraptions. We designed this class to be a stress-free and fun way for students to step into STEM classes.
In this one-of-a-kind course, we introduce students to the principles of electronics and circuits. Then we challenge the campers to combine their imagination with this technical knowledge to build projects. Students assemble a wide variety of electrical components from our Lab, such as infrared light sensors, potentiometers, motors, servos, oscillators, fans, delays, synthesizers, speakers, microphones, and keyboards to build and power their creations. Who knew oscillators could be so much fun! There’s no soldering. And no breadboards. Instead students explore circuits through unique activities that combine learning the science of circuits with hands-on building.
