3D DESIGN & PRINTING 1 Students will learn to use SketchUp or Blender to create 3D computer-aided designs of their own rooms. They will also design and print a 3D object using our dual extruder FlashForge Creator Pro!
3D DESIGN & PRINTING 2 Students will learn more advanced 3D modeling techniques and print a new 3d object using the dual extruder FlashForge Creator Pro.
APP DESIGN With the kid-friendly program App Inventor 2 by MIT, kids learn coding while making their own apps. They test their creations on either a simulator or Android phone. Example Apps that kids as young as 2nd grade have made are Finger Painting, Virtual Pet, and Multiplication Help.
BLOGGING Students create and format their own blog site. Privacy and good digital citizenship is stressed along with learning basic HTML and web design.
ENGINEERING FUN! Students will learn how engineering affects their lives. They will solve problems using everyday objects, conduct experiments, participate in hands-on learning activities, and create amazing inventions!
ENGINEERING FUN 2! A second set of fun, interactive challenges for kids to see engineering in the everyday.
GRAPHIC DESIGN Kids use a variety of image- and design-creating and editing software and learn how to create and handle digital artwork. Students practice logo design, tesselations and more and finish with their own portfolio.
KEYBOARDING Students learn keyboarding and 10-key numeric typing in a fun, interactive game-like setting. Home keys, shortcut keys, function keys and editing keyboard preferences will all be covered. An essential for today’s word processing demands!
MAKERSPACE ELEMENTARY A place for building, inventing, learning tools, exploring materials, and more. Incorporates key principles of Makerspaces including student-chosen activities, hands on building, tinkering and imagining. Example sessions include safety and use of hand and power tools, DIY non-electrical pinball machines, Medieval machines and precision stenciling- but sessions can and will be guided by student input.
MAKERSPACE MIDDLESCHOOL Tinker, invent, learn tools, explore materials, and create! Lancer Makerspace brings STEM principles to life by teaching introductory manufacturing techniques including material selection, hand and power tools, engineering design and so much more. Sessions include medieval machines, pyrography (the art and science of burning patterns in wood), special effects using pneumatic (air) pressure, wearable technology and more. Sessions can and will be guided by student input.
MINECRAFT MODS Enjoy watching your favorite YouTubers make and play mods? Learn how to make mods of your very own in Minecraft! Using Blockly, a visual drag-and-drop programming language where code looks like puzzle pieces, create mods and see them come to life! Summon animals, build towers, make lightning strike, and more. By the end of the course students will be able to mod at a beginning level.
PRINCESS POWER Adventures in Engineering will have your princess re-imagining and re-enacting their favorite stories while collaborating and learning STEAM concepts. Create structures like Frozen’s Elsa, fight like Shrek’s Fiona or study underwater sounds like The Little Mermaid’s Ariel! Challenge your princess power and engineer your way through classic and modern heroine and princess stories!
ROBOTICS Whether using LEGO® Mindstorms or arduino-compatible PiBots, students learn the function of each part of a robot while designing and coding for challenges.
ROBOTICS JR Use Ozobots and Makey Makey to give young children a way to connect the digital and physical worlds. Ozobots follow lines and patterns and can be programmed easily. Makey Makey teaches circuits and turns everyday objects into musical instruments.
SCRATCH CODING VIDEO GAMES & ANIMATIONS Using a visually-oriented programming language designed by MIT, kids get an introduction to coding by making video games and animations.
STAR WARS Star Wars has captivated children for 40 years with the technology, effects and amazing inventions used in “a galaxy far, far away”. Students learn about the forces around them, and have fun exploring the inventions of Star Wars. Discover the real-life adventures of NASA, control a droid, collaborate and code based on Star Wars movies.
SUPERHERO POWERFly high, test your strength, and design superpowered structures based on the most famous DC and Marvel comics! Whether creating a gadget for Batman, slinging Spiderman’s web or testing Captain America’s shield, students will re-imagine and re-enact escapes, rescues & battles while learning STEAM concepts.
CUSTOMIZED PROGRAMMING AIE will work with you to create a STEAM-based program based on your students’ interests or learning needs.
