 STEAM SUMMER CAMPS (STEAM)
 
   
STEAM532: Arduino Robotics

Are you ready to start programming your own computer boards or robots and take control of your computerized world?

At TechShop Arduino Robotics camp, you will learn how to design, build and program your own microcontroller! This 5-day camp will introduce budding hackers to the powerful Arduino board, which will be used to make a multitude of different projects throughout the week, culminating in your very own robot. We will also cover the use of the laser cutter to assist in fabricating parts for this class.

Students who take and successfully pass this course will be certified to use the laser cutters at TechShop.

Recommended: Students with little to no soldering and electronic experience are encouraged to take the Basic Electronics course first.

This TechShop Week-Long Summer Camp is for kids ages 12-17, Mondays through Friday from 9:30AM - 3:30PM.

Extended care is available from 9:00AM until 6:00PM for an additional $150 per youth for the week. Please make sure to purchase the Summer of Creation: Maker Session that begins on the same day as your child's camp!

STEAM533: Summer of Creation: Basic Electronics

In the TechShop Basic Electronics STEAM camp, we will cover basic concepts related to electricity, circuits, electronic measurement, and soldering. This includes learning basic solder and flux types, safe soldering practices, and soldering iron maintenance.

Projects include using solder and a soldering iron to make small stick figures as well as soldering electronic "through-hole" components for electronic printed circuit board assembly (PCBs). We will also cover the use of the laser cutter to assist in fabricating parts for this class.

Students who take and successfully pass this course will be certified to use the laser cutters and soldering station at TechShop.

STEAM534: Summer of Creation: Design and Build

Design and Build Camp introduces young innovators to software and provides a chance to bring creations to life using TechShop’s laser cutters and 3D printers! Designers will start by learning and refining their CAD (computer aided design) skills in 2D and 3D design software before bringing projects to the laser cutters and 3D printers. Projects are defined by the imagination and can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, cardboard, acrylic, and plastic. Projects will be a combination of 2D and 3D and participants will complete a variety of small daily projects in addition to a larger final project.

Students who take and successfully pass this course will be certified to use the laser cutters, Printerbot 3D printers, and the heat press and vinyl cutters at TechShop.

Extended care is available from 8:30AM until 6:00PM for an additional $150 per youth for the week. Please make sure to purchase the Summer of Creation: Maker Session that begins on the same day as your child's camp!

STEAM301: Advanced Robotics Camp

Age: 12–17 only
Materials: $100 (waived if you bring in the robotics kit from Arduino Robotics Summer Camp).
Price: $650
Prerequisite: None required, but a knowledge of Arduino is recommended. If you are unsure of your student’s knowledge level, we suggest they take Arduino Robotics before attending this camp.

Are your programming chops ready to be tested with real-world challenges? At TechShop Advanced Robotics camp, you will design, build and program your own microcontroller robot to complete complex tasks!

This 5-day camp will expand on the capabilities of the powerful Arduino board, which will be used to make your robot avoid obstacles, navigate in low visibility, and move objects around a space. We will also cover the use of the laser cutter to assist in fabricating parts for this class.
This week-long summer camp is for makers ages 12–17, Monday through Friday, from 9:30AM–3:30PM.
After-camp and before-camp extended hours are available to purchase for the week as well. This gives you extra time to make use of what you're learning during camp sessions. Learn more here.
