Event description

Description

In our 10-week Maker Tech After School Program, students will learn about 3D Design and modeling and use tools such as Tinkercad to design and 3D print their own creations. They will also learn the operation of 3D printers. No experience is necessary and we emphasize a fun and safe environment where kids learn cutting edge maker tech and coding skills. Participants will get to create and take home a number of projects.


Participants will be introduced to coding with the Python language and will apply the basics of algebra and geometry. Students will be introduced to robotics by programming the Arduino microcontroller and will build a vibrobot that they can take home. Additional projects include bridge building and jewellery making.


In the second half of the program, students will build a Mirobot, a fun, drawing robot, and will apply the coding they have learned.


General supplies (worth more than $40) are included and students will be provided with a Mirobot kit they can build and use in the program. The Mirobot can be optionally purchased for $75 if they would like to take home and keep (regular Mirobot price is between $100-$125).

Instructors will be: Matthew Ng Shun and Cyri Jones

Matthew graduated from BCIT's mechatronics program and has been our lead instructor at Zen Maker Lab for several years. Cyri teaches IT and entrepreneurship at Capilano University and BCIT and has a B.Sc. and a MBA.

Week 10 - Dec 6: Mirobot maze challenge

You can enroll for either Week 1 to 5, Week 6 to 10 or the entire program, Weeks 1 to 10.

We will be providing the required equipment (including laptops, 3D printers, etc.) that will be used during the program. We will also be providing the supplies.
