TECH FORT GREENE : Play, Make, Go!

(July 10-July 28, 2017)
We believe in empowering children with the tools they need to bring their imagination to life. Tech Fort Greene campers will explore and experiment with circuits and 3D printing, program their own robots, and design their own short films using green screen technology. Our program aims to teach children the foundations of computational thinking through experimentation and discovery. Campers will have hands-on time with Little Bits circuits, Bee Bots and Lego Education software, and will learn the basics of Scratch, an introductory programming language.

WEEK 1 (JULY 10-14): PLAY!

Flying through the air, appearing and disappearing on alien planets and in magical kingdoms, shrinking down and swimming in a fish tank… your imagination is the only limit! This weeklong workshop exploring green screen technology and its applications. The students will work with a green screen studio setup and use materials such as paint and costumes to create their own magical movies. This hands-on workshop is an exercise in storytelling that allows for imaginative scenarios and experimentation. 

WEEK 2 (JULY 17-21): MAKE!

Make your imagination come to life! Campers will brainstorm wacky inventions and zany creatures through a variety of makerspace tools. Campers will experiment with circuitry to create puppets and use 3D printers to design the characters of their dreams.

WEEK 3 (JULY 24-28): GO!

Robots run, robots go! Campers will learn and explore the many abilities of robots. Through experimentation with sensors and motors, campers will learn how to build and program their robots in many different ways.
