Helping Students Love Learning Through Making

 

Through making and tinkering, participants will learn S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art and math) skills using their hands, grow their creativity and become more curious about their world and test the limits of what is possible.

Inventors Workshop Series at the Museum of Aviation

Building with Code: Programming is a central skill to digital fabrication, robotics, and all subject domains. During this session, students will be given a crash course in computer science, gaining a basic understanding of sequencing, looping, and variables. Resources from Code.org, Scratch, and Code Academy will be utilized, which include learning activities that feature characters from Minecraft, Frozen, Angry Birds, and other popular games.   We also encourage students to create stuff with a ridiculously fun tool called Makey Makey

Block Builder
3D Modeling:  Our students will learn the basics of 3D modeling objects and designing stuff for a 3D printer.   Skills from this workshop will empower makers to build elements for video game worlds, art, and 3D printed pieces.  We will “print” the student work into a Minecraft world and encourage them to enhance their creations.

Student work in TinkerCAD

Robotics: Building upon the programming skills introduced early in the program, students will have the opportunity to build and control robots.   Students will love customizing their robots using puzzle based programming and the easy to assemble frames, sensors, and actuators.   

 

We want to thank the Museum of Aviation of Warner Robins, GA for enabling us to share these workshops.   Make sure their awesome STEM education programming for students and teachers here.
