Automaton Mechanics: Maker’s Workshop (In-person)
September 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$45
Automaton Mechanics – KiwiCO kit included
Students build an automaton — a machine that seems to operate by itself — and learn about the mechanics that power it, including cams, followers, and wheels and axles. As students switch out the characters on top, they identify and predict patterns of motion caused by different cam shapes below.
In the end, students design their own piece of mechanical art by synthesizing what they’ve learned about mechanics and motion.
It’s never too early to get started with STEM. In fact, STEM makes learning fun (and not feel like learning at all) while teaching crucial skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity.
Our Maker’s workshops introduce the amazing world of STEM through science kits. Each session, our expert educators will guide students through different STEM projects and learn the history and science behind them.
Under the current guidelines, a mask must be worn any time you are inside the Learning Center. Students and families must practice social distancing and remain 6 feet apart at all times. Additionally, students’ temperature will be scanned before being allowed to enter the learning center.
