STEAM222: Home School Sessions

The advanced projects in TechShop’s home school course will teach each of the key concepts of STEAM–science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. This five-week course provides an engaging framework with ample room for students to self-direct and add their personal styles to the projects. Each participant will complete one hands-on STEAM project per session.

WEEK 01: Lifecasting
Learn about different materials and processes as you dive into the world of mold making. Cast a mold of your hand and craft a mount to make your own custom wall hanging.

WEEK 02: Vibrating Bristle Bot
Turn the head of a toothbrush into a robot! These baby bots are an easy and fun introduction to basic electronics. Race these little bugs on your counter or through a homemade obstacle course.

WEEK 03: Egg Drop
Learn about biomimicry and explore material properties by designing and building a protective carrier to prevent an egg from cracking when dropped from various heights.

WEEK 04: Stop-Motion Animation
Be the set designer, prop builder, and director of your own stop motion animation short movie. Use 3D printing and laser cutting to create the scenery and characters.

WEEK 05: Building Catapults
Use math and design to laser cut your own catapult. Then test your design in an ultimate catapult contest!
