STEM Workshops

STEM / TECH Workshops at miniMAKEathon 2017

So, you are not ready for the 2-day miniMAKEathon yet? Never tried coding, never built any apps, and never touched an Arduino board or Raspberry Pi? How about you try one or more of these quick introductory workshops and explore what you like the most? Find out how hackers and makers become innovators! Each workshop is about an hour and 10 minutes long and it steps you through a real world mini project. Open to 7th grade and above!

So what workshops are available to attend?

Raspberry Pi

This workshop uses Raspberry PI hardware and Python language. Raspberry Pi is a small but powerful computer designed to help your child understand and explore the almost-magical world of computing. This workshop will have 2 sections, an Introductory level where students learn about RGB LEDs and how to control them using a potentiometer, and an Advanced level where students create a push button LED game. Open to 7th grade and above.

Arduino 

The Arduino is a microcontroller; a small computer that has a single function. Microcontrollers run everyday items like toaster ovens, electronic toys and MP3 players. An Arduino can be programmed to monitor sensors and watch for inputs like temperature, pressure, light, voltage or a button or switch. It can also be programmed to control switches, relays, motors and other outputs. Students will build a small home alarm system which consists of an ultrasonic sensor, buzzer, button and LEDs. The small home alarm system will detect nearby objects and respond according to their distance. if something gets too close, the alarm will sound and you need to push the button to reset the alarm. Open to 7th grade and above.

Android App Development

The Android workshop will let students create an application that will simulate a countdown for new year. Students will learn how to utilize Android Studio interface and experience xml based styling. The workshop will require students to bring a laptop and Android device. Either Mac or Windows PC is OK installed with Android Studio. Pre-requisite experience Students should have basic understanding of Java. Open to 7th grade and above.

iOS App Development 

The iOS workshop will let students to make an application that allows them to take pictures and create a profile of a person. Students will learn how to utilize iOS interface designer, storyboards, layouts, constraints, how to perform segues, and take pictures and access the photo gallery. The workshop will require students to have a Mac, either a standard Macbook, Macbook air or Macbook pro with Xcode 8+ installed and with Swift 3.0. Students should have some basic understanding of how to program in a language such as Python, C/C++, Java or Swift. Open to 7th grade and above.

Build and Play Robotics

Build a QuickBot using LEGO Mindstorms components and compete in friendly SumoBot scrimmage. Open to 2nd grade and above. Walk-in Welcome. No pre-registration required.
