Robot Commanders 101 & Circuit Makers
Circuit Lab is offering two great classes back to back during December School Vacation. Participants can chose to register for one class for half day
activities or register for the two classes to make it a full day option.
Children who register for both programs will have a supervised lunch
break with Recreation staff. This class will be cancelled two weeks from the start of class if there is low enrollment.

Let’s get creative with electricity! In this junior hands-on electronics class, students will gain experience with creating their own electronics; designing custom light-up greeting cards, electric games, mazes, and even musical instruments. Each class day consists of a circuitry lesson and a hands-on electronics project, using components like lights, buzzers, switches, motors, and sensors. Circuit Lab staff will make sure participants create many projects that they can be proud of, and each class day includes a take-home project.

Understanding how software can interact with robots is a key skill for the STEM jobs of tomorrow. In this class we provide several active, playful activities, where students learn about what it means to write, debug, and execute computer programs that communicate with different robotic devices. Using the power of code, students will turn Sphero SPRK+ robots into Magic 8 Balls, automated Red Light / Green Light games, and the arcade classic Pong – and Unruly Splats will become our voting machines, relay races, guessing games, and more.
