The Maker Garage is our studio for Makers; we will have equipment, tools, IoT boards, sensors, 3D Printers and much more to teach, share, and support the various builds, fueled by your children's creativity and innovative thinking.
This is where the future generation will design, build, test, and prepare for competitions in robotics, programming and other competitions. Following are a few examples of what we will provide in the Maker Garage with supervision...
OUR TOOLS & RESOURCES
Color-coded electronic Bits encourage exploration, experimentation and creativity.
With LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 hands-on, minds-on approach the only challenge you’ll have is getting your students to leave the classroom!
The project-based units instill proper engineering practices from an early age, while maintaining the fun and excitement that comes from playing with VEX IQ.
FLORA & GEMMA
Adafruit's fully-featured wearable electronics platform. It's a round, sewable, Arduino-compatible microcontroller designed to empower amazing wearables projects.
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.
Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online.
3D printing is a tool that allows people to create new things, limited only by imagination. 3D printing
and modeling projects should empower your students to take chances and make mistakes.
The DS1000Z 4 channel oscilloscopes come in 70 or 100 MHz versions with a 7 inch display and Rigol's UltraVision technology as well as a host of options. Add the optional analysis, decoding, deep memory, and integrated 2 channel waveform generator for a powerful 4 channel scope
rapid prototyping platform for small electronic gadgets and embedded hardware devices. It combines the advantages of object-oriented programming, solderless assembly of electronics using a kit of hardware modules, and quick physical enclosure fabrication using computer-aided design.
