Inventing fun and hands-on tinkering for curious kids! Students enjoy project-based learning using a mix of low-tech maker materials and popular edtech tools such as LittleBits, CircuitCubes, Tinkering Labs and Lectrify.
Some take-home projects in this graduating program where students build on skills learned across the year.
TinkerTech Invent and Code
For Grades 3-5
Calling all tinkerers, coders, makers, and budding engineers!
Explore and learn design and engineering skills in this dynamic and creative STEM class. We bring you the tools and materials for your projects - from craft materials, copper tape and leds, to littleBits, CircuitCubes, and micro:bits that you program on Chromebooks. Class adapted to students' interests and level of coding experience. Some take-home projects in this graduating program where students build on skills learned across the year.
TinkerTech Fun with Robots
K-5, adapted curriculum for each grade
What is a robot? How does it work? How are robots used in the world? How can you build one?
Join this class for an introduction to coding and robotics through hands-on learning in a fun and friendly environment.
We will explore a range of robotic activities, including building your own robot designs and learning to program them to do what you want them to do!
Classes are scheduled in a minimum of 6-week blocks that fit with the school year. Based on a six-week block of one-hour classes, fees are $180 per student for maker classes where we provide materials for take-home projects.
