Join us for Make it Move After School

An Introduction to Robotics and Kinetic Sculpture

For girls and gender expansive kids* age 13+

FRIDAYS, 4pm - 6:30pm

February 3 - April 7


This hands on class is all about movement--how it works, why it works, and how to make it work.

Learn all about Ohm's law, Newton's laws of motion, physics, and computer programming while creating a sculpture that moves how and when we tell it to. More specifically, we will be making a machine to "give yourself a hand!" whenever you need it.

Taught by the Director of STEAM Studio, Sara Sanders!

Learning Outcomes:

  • Application of basic computer programming
  • How to create a circuit through the understanding of voltage, current, resistance
  • The process of casting your own hands!
  • An understanding of the physics of motion
  • Problem solving through iterative prototypes

$375 - snacks, tools, and materials included!

Financial Aid is Available! Apply Here Prior to Registration

*SkillSet is open to students of all genders
