Arduino

Design + Build + Innovate

Charge into the world of invention and technology with two themes to choose from this spring! Pacific Science Center will offer two concurrent 6-week sessions of Tech Creations focused on different science topics. No programming or building experience required!

 

Tech Creations: Arduino
Ever wonder how people solve problems with machines? Or how robots know to perform a task? Build and program a creation of your own to perform tasks and solve problems. Write computer code for an Arduino circuit board, explore specialized materials and tools and understand the basics of innovation. Demonstrate your hard work and new skills with a showcase for family and friends. Experience all of this while discovering Pacific Science Center’s exhibits and shows each week. At the end of the six week series, take home your own Arduino board and the knowledge and confidence to continue improving and changing your creations.

NEW! Tech Creations: Animatronics
Have you wondered what a conversation between a flamingo and a walrus would look like? What if you could bring that story to life? You can! Combine art, animatronics and storytelling to create a technologically advanced tale. Over six weeks you will fully develop a story, build characters using words and motors, and video record as your story comes to life. Experience all of this while discovering Pacific Science Center’s exhibits and shows each week. At the end of the six week series, take home the character you have built and your new skills to breathe life into your imagination!
