Tinkering & Inventing II – Ages 10–14

What do you want to make? Now that you have built up some skills, work on designing more sophisticated projects. Learn about junk robotics; build a noise-maker, an alarm for your cookie jar, a box that lights up. Learn about adapting other projects, recycling parts and researching processes to suit your interests. Each term is different; students are encouraged to continue throughout the year.
