MORE INFO ABOUT THE ACTIVITIES:

Minecraft is a very popular game amongst educators because it teaches a variety of skills used in many disciplines today. This game engages the students winning half the battle faced by many educators. Students learn strategy, analytical thinking and problem solving tactics within this game. Educators teach coding, math, science and language arts using this game as a tool.

STEM activity with Robotics
Watch demonstrations of VEX Robotics. This modular and project-based curriculum teaches the design process in an engaging, hands-on manner to help challenge, motivate, and inspire their students in the fields of science. Students learn through an actual engineering project, and students quickly make the connection with real life applications.

3D Printing & Design.
Experience 3D Printing and design applications. Our instructors will share how 3D models are built, designed and then printed. As “outlandish” as having a cell phone sounded to us in the 1980’s, every home will have a personal 3D printer soon. We will be environmental friendly and we will be replacing & reusing our equipment with 3D prints in the future to keep our landfills to a minimum.
