STEAM101: After School: Design and Build Foundations (Mon & Wed)

TechShop’s hands-on STEAM programming is now available after school. Participants are immersed in a creative environment that covers science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Across every subject, they learn how to approach life as problem solvers.

Learn the basics of how to operate a full array of tools in this elemental course that spans 8 weeks of after-school sessions. After learning how to use digital design software to create your own custom personal logo, you'll bring it to life in a variety of materials using laser cutters, 3D printers, vinyl cutters, and standard shop tools. At the end of the session, you will have a solid understanding of how to go from idea to design to creation, plus you will be certified to use all the aforementioned tools at TechShop.

Design and Build is a foundational course that gives innovators safety clearance for the tools used in our STEAM program and prepares them for the next course. We will meet for 3-hour sessions, 2 days a week, for 5 weeks. Please arrive 10 minutes early on your first day so you can complete registration.

STEAM104: After School: Basic Electronics (Tue & Thur)

TechShop’s hands-on STEAM programming is now available after school. Participants are immersed in a creative environment that covers science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics, and across every subject, they learn how to approach life as problem solvers.

Dive into the blinking, beeping, programmable world of electronics in this elemental course that spans over 8 weeks of after-school sessions. After an introductory primer that lays the groundwork for electricity, circuits, soldering, and using multimeters via mini-project builds, students explore circuit design, learn about microcontrollers, and get started with the Arduino. Students will also learn to work with the laser cutters and desktop CNC mill. The large project build is a fun and flashy LED cube.

This Basic Electronics class is a foundational class that will give your young innovator the tools to excel in more advanced electronics courses.

This program meets for 2-hour sessions, 2 days a week, for 8 weeks. Please arrive 10 minutes early on your first day so you can complete registration.
