Classes

We develop courses that teach real-world innovation skills to youth at a fair price.  All of our courses are project-based so that youth can learn through hands-on building.  These paid programs help sustain our social venture as we encourage the world to build, learn, teach and inspire through robotics.   Profit from these classes make our outreach programs possible.  Our classes teach:

Technical Skills Life Skills
Electrical Engineering Communication
Mechanical Engineering Critical Thinking
Software Engineering Creativity
Industrial Design Collaboration


Level 0 – Barnabas Tinker Series

Ages:  5-10

Prerequisites:  None

Class Description:  Introduce robotics to your young inventor!  This new course takes students on 60-minute robotics adventures, during which they will learn key engineering principles as they build little robots of their own.  Each class session will be devoted to an independent project designed especially for  elementary school students.  

Sample projects include:  Critter-Bot, Build Your Own Electric Fan, Scribble-Bot, Arcade-Bot, & more!

Critter-Bot”                              

Lions and tigers and bears!  Oh my!  Our young inventors will learn to design and create their own dancing critter robots using a toothbrush, craft materials, batteries, and a mini-vibration motor.

 

FAN-tastic Robot”                             

Stay cool this summer!  Our young inventors will build their own functional fan using wood, paper, batteries, and DC motors.

 

 

Scribble-Bot”                      

Find your inner Picasso . . . or build a Picasso robot!  Our young inventors will build a robot that draws using craft materials, cups, markers, batteries, and a large vibration motor.

 

 

Arcade-Bot”                   

Move over Pac-Man!  Our young inventors will design and construct their first mechanical arcade game using craft materials, servo motors, and servo-controllers.

Level 1 – Introduction To Robotics [Barnabas-Bot]

Ages:  8-12

Prerequisites:  None

Class Description:  This Introduction to Robotics class provides an opportunity for young students to learn Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in a fun and engaging manner.  Students will be introduced to circuit building, micro-controller programming, and 3D-printing as they build a fully-functioning robot of their own.  Every robot will be different, as your child designs his/her own robot’s appearance and behavior.  Best of all, everyone gets to keep their completed robot at the end of the class.  Our class concludes with a robot showcase where parents are invited to see their kids present their completed projects.  Students will also practice writing and communication skills through daily journaling and interactive group activities throughout the course.
