On August 21st, Billings will see a 93% solar eclipse. What does this mean? What causes a solar eclipse? This presentation will teach you about solar eclipses. There will be a limited number of solar eclipse glasses provided to program attendees while they last. Shirley Greene, a Solar System Ambassador through JPL NASA, will be giving the presentation. All ages are invited!
Learn how to use an Arduino board to produce sound output! We will learn some basics of C coding to write out the program, then actually connect the buttons and cables to the Arduino board. Once your piano is assembled, you will be able to play the keys like a piano and make songs! This is a two part workshop, so plan on coming both days. Call 657-8290 to sign up.
Sadly, summer is drawing to a close. But before it’s gone we’re going to send it out with another awesome STEAM week! All programs are in the TECH Lab except for the special eclipse program on August 16th.
We've attached color sensors to our LEGO Robots, and built a duct tape maze on the floor. Can you program the robot to get through the maze using the color sensor?
Learn about solar eclipse, pick up some free eclipse glasses, and get ready for the eclipse on August 21st!
It's just exactly like it sounds. Play Battleship using the periodic table instead of the typical game board!
Learn how to build a simple maze using Scratch coding, and then hook up a Makey-Makey kit to the computer and see what conductive objects you can use to get through your maze!
Come to the lab and learn how to knit or crochet, or make any kind of fiber arts craft you want.
