The Raspberry Heights Workshop is a project based class for young makers aged 6-10 where students learn computer basics, UNIX commands, Scratch programming and physical computing (interfacing) on the Raspberry Pi.
Snowball enables people/kids with no electronics or programming background to do robots, prototypes and electronics applications in few minutes.If you are a parent, artist, hobbyist or teacher for kids then Snowball is there for you.
Aspire IT is a program I have founded in my high school through funding by NCWIT to provide local community's middle school girls an opportunity to be involved in the STEM field, particularly in computing or technology. Since less than 12% of Computer Science bachelor degrees awarded were given to women, it is crucial that these girls are informed that they, too, have the power to program and change the world with codes. I want to present this piece of information to the public, and inspire others to show that anyone and everyone can start a program to benefit these girls and change the status quo where IT is seemingly a 'men only' field.
The Orbital Rendersphere 2.0 is a massive spherical display. Over 250 LED's spin at over 450 RPM to suspend visuals in midair. Users interact with the spherical display through leap motion controller console.
Makers will be able to build, create, play, modify and experiment with a variety of technologies through projects designed by Robofun including LEGO Robotics, Scratch, and Stop Motion Animation.
A physical hardware interface to connect any sensor to any cpu device, such as Mac, PC, Smartphone, iPAD, etc. Advantages: cheap, simple, easy, fun, scientific, includes free software for measurement and gaming.
The Computer Clubhouse Start Making! Program introduces youth to the basics of circuitry, coding, crafting, & engineering through progressive introductory activities, leading to individual & small group "open make" pursuits.
Presidents, Prime Ministers, Silicon Valley billionaires, and members of the maker community are calling for children to code but what does that mean? Web sites and non-profit organizations have been created based on the assumption that self-selecting kids will teach themselves. Such an approach leaves too much to chance and assures inequitable opportunity. A presenter with 30+ years of experience will explore the how, what, and why of teaching computer science to children in a developmentally appropriate fashion so they learn a lot more than just how to code. Pedagogical strategies will be shared.
Meet Lil'Bot, an open-source, balancing robotics platform for learning, hacking and delight. It is suitable for academics, hobbyists and hackers for endless exploration of balancing robots and control systems.
If you have a child or youngster with an insatiable curiosity to hack and learn how things work, this is the perfect gift. We know your little ones are not wired to sit and learn programming the way you and I did. Turn your bored genius into an inventor and a maker with Lil'Bot. For the younger child, a mystery programming language is in the works and will soon be announced.
Lil'Bot is Arduino compatible and can accept standard shields made by us, by Arduino, or by third parties. As such, it can be programmed in the standard C/C++ Arduino environment. Here are some of the exciting things you can work on with Lil'Bot: Create new robot behaviors, let your robot express over 20 different emotions on its emoShield, develop additional software and hardware features, program from any computer with the Arduino environment (Linux, OS X and Windows), and use the board for non-balancing robot and inertial/motor control applications.
Learningtech.org offers Science/Tech/Eng/Math [STEM] camps. Our HANDS-ON booth highlights work by K12 students. WE MAKE MAKERS who learn to tech and tech to learn! Examples include PyBot: Lego Robots w Python and Raspberry Pi
