STEAM: Basic Electronics After School: Running

TechShop’s beloved STEAM programming is currently running after school. Our students are immersed in a creative environment like nothing else. Our programs cover science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics, but across every subject, we teach our students how to approach life as a problem solver.



Dive into the blinking, beeping, programmable world of electronics in this elemental course that spans over 15 weeks of after-school sessions. The course begins with an introductory primer that lays the groundwork on electricity, circuits, soldering, and using multimeters, as learned through mini project builds. Next, students will explore circuit design, learn about microcontrollers, and get started with Arduino. The large project build will be the fun and flashy LED cube.



This Basic Electronics class is a foundational class that will give your child the ground work to excel in more advanced electronics courses. This program will meet for 2-hour sessions, 1 day a week, for 15 weeks. Please show up 10 minutes early on your first day so you can complete our registration.

STEAM: Design & Build After-School Learning

TechShop's Design & Build after-school STEAM sessions introduce middle school and high school students to the engineering design process using laser cutters, 3D printers, and electronics.

Throughout this project-based curriculum, students identify design problems, brainstorm creative solutions, and prototype human-centered inventions using CAD (computer aided design) skills in Adobe Illustrator. Additionally, all students leave with a project of their own design, aimed at solving a problem in their everyday lives. Previous examples include programming alarm clocks, designing and laser cutting lamps, and modeling then 3D printing chess sets.
