Session 2: Jul 20-31, 2020

Have you ever had a cool idea for a machine that you wanted to make, but didn’t know how? Perhaps a robot that swats flies? Or a wizard machine that grants you wishes? In this studio, come with an idea or an issue, and you will invent the machine that solves problems for the future, or just does something really fun! And in ten short days, we’ll show you how!

In this studio, students will learn the basics of fabrication, electronics, microcontrollers, and computer programming. You will also learn how to integrate the computer with external sensors (from simple switches and buttons to heat/temperature, light, gas, touch) and actuators (such as motors, lights, speakers, solenoids, valves, fans) to allow them to turn their ideas into nutopian machines.
