We are now taking reservations for our GeniusMobile!
Light Play Grades 4 – 8
Following a presentation, students will explore light, shadow, and motion using a variety of materials and light sources. We start with guided explorations of shadows, single and multiple light sources, three-dimensional objects and translucency, participants learn about light, reflection, and more. They will make a light piece and eventually combine them into a collaborative light spectacle.
Simple Machines Grades K – 8
Following a short presentation, students will have hands on exploration of simple machines. They will have a series of challenges to try to understand how machines can help make work easier.
Makey Makeying Music Grade 1 - 8
Students explore soundscapes with real objects in this musical lesson using key making software and a Makey Makey. This lesson applies scientific processes, teaches how to generate evidence as it relates to electricity and conductivity. Students learn to collect data and draw conclusions
Makey Makeying Arcade Games Grade 5 - 8
Students work together to make a high tech carnival or arcade game. Students design, build, and share their own arcade creations. Students use Scratch for programming and Makey Makeys to incorporate some simple circuitry and provide input to the Scratch program. Classes can invite their little buddies to come try their games.
Sphero Challenges Grades 4 - 8
Grade specific Sphero activities. Students will learn about robotics, measurement, engineering and more in this series of Sphero lessons. Sphero painting, Maze challenges and Chariot Building are just three of the many projects we could do.
Little Bits – Introduction, Invention Cycle, Innovation Grades 6 - 8
Introduction to the littleBits and to littleBits Invention Cycle, a process that can help guide students through the invention and engineering design process. Students will start the lesson with a design challenge using littleBits. The class will then reflect on their process and learn how their experience connects to the littleBits Invention Cycle.
Robotics Grades 4 - 8
By constructing and programming robotic function with technology and maker materials, students gain powerful knowledge in STEAM Learning to explore how robots sense, act and think. Projects can include creating a Robotic Petting Zoo.
3D Printing Grades 6 - 8
Programming in 3D teaches spatial and mathematics knowledge, as well as art and engineering design. Learn how to develop 3D models using Computer Aided Design software, and how it relates to 3D printing.
Physical Computing Grades 4 - 8
Open source microprocessors, interfaces and sensors allow students to explore the connection between the physical and digital world by developing wearable computing by creating smart textile projects. These mobile devices can do more than just light up a piece of clothing, they can also test and monitor the world around you.
Pop-Up Maker Space Grade 4-8
Provide the room and we transform it into a maker space at your school. After a discussion of what Maker Education is all about, student are tasked to try their hand at making something that is interesting to them. This program allows students to explore disciplines and learn skills that they choose, to foster further inquiry in disciplines they may want to pursue. This project is for a week or longer at a site.
